Christmas treeChristmas Gift Shop

Old Time Christmas is going to be here before we know it. We need to get the gift shop ready for the many visitors and this is where you come in.
We are looking for tree ornaments to sell and also other Christmas related items. We will be accepting your handmade consignment items on Wednesday and Thursday, Dec 4th and 5th between 10am and 3pm. Remember nothing plastic and that 25% of the price you put on the items goes to Quiet Valley. Please group like items together and give them the same number to make it easier when we count what has not sold.

Please pick up all left over items on Monday and Tuesday, Dec 16th and 17th.

Thank you,

Lisbet Price
Gift shop Manager

Belschnikel* Old Time Christmas 2013 * December 7, 8 & 14, 15

If you have already volunteered for Old Time Christmas, thanks. If you haven’t done so yet I highly recommend setting aside some time to get involved with this special holiday program.

A skit is in the works for the Victorian cabin and should be fun as the youngster in it will be practicing a Noah’s ark skit for their relatives who will be coming in for the holidays. Dare I think of involving live animals?! I will need some children ages 10 to 14 to portray the farm children. Let me know if there are any budding actors who would like to play a part. We are currently still in the planning stages for the story in the cabin, but it is sure to be as heartwarming as always.

I have lost a few young fellows who grew up a little too much to play the role of Jakie so I can use some non-shy boys ages 9 - 11 to portray him in the Belschnikel skit. Practice is usually the Saturday after Thanksgiving in the morning. Please let me know if you can help in this area!

Old Time Christmas will be knocking at our door in just a blink so please take the time to mark your calendars and plan to help. You will be glad you did.

It pays to shop Weis Markets – and it can pay Quiet Valley. This past year Weis Markets, Inc. donated over $900.00 to Quiet Valley because you members turned in your Weis Markets cash register tapes to the farm. Please keep turning in your Weis receipts.

Please check the Store Number at the top of your receipt. We can use receipts from Store Numbers 151, 155, 157, 158, 159, 162, 164, and 166. Please do not cut off the receipt below the Balance as we need the space to do calculations and have the receipts accepted by Weis Markets.

They very generously donate a percentage of their sales to non-profit organizations such as us. Thanks to you and thanks to Weis Markets! Please either drop off or mail your slips to:
