HANOVER — The ninth annual Celebration of Fall will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 8, under the Hanover Picnic Pavilion on Main Street.

Denny Breau, singer/songwriter and legendary guitarist, will be the featured performer at this year’s Celebration of Fall. A Maine Country Music Hall of Famer, Breau performs folk, blues, country and jazz.

The family-friendly event is free and open to the public. The festival, sponsored by the Gardner Robert Memorial Library trustees, is the organization’s major fundraiser of the year supporting the annual operating costs of the library.

There will be a trash and treasure sale, book sale, craft sale, bakery sale and snack bar, offering Dan and Laurie’s homemade chili and other tasty foods. There will be many raffle items, including themed basket and Busy Bees quilt raffles, as well as a 50/50 cash raffle.

The handmade reversible quilt by the Library Busy Bees, “It’s a Morning Glory Day,” is on display at the Town Office along with the themed baskets.

Raffle tickets are now on sale at the Town Office, the library or through any of the library trustees. Tickets are $1 each or $5 for six. 

The library is seeking gently used items for the yard sale and new or used books for the book sale. Those wishing to donate may drop their items off at the library during regular hours. Baked goods will be accepted the day of the festival.
