Vine Street Baptist Church members, friends and regular attendees are invited to spend the afternoon at the Bates family farm in Salem, IN. This annual event has become a favorite among those who have gone time and time again.
This year, the festivities will be on October 21st. Those interested can meet at the church building at 10am for a carpool caravan to the farm, or directions there can be provided to those who need to go separately.
After a nice drive through the Indiana countryside, everyone spends time walking around the grounds and fellowship with one another. There are games like pumpkin bowling & corn hole, and there is a hay fort for the children (and some adults too!) to play on. Trails through the nearby woods are fun to walk, and there is a hay ride planned too. There is also a time where guitars are played and everyone joins in singing familiar songs.
Lunch is served and everyone is encouraged to bring a side or a dessert to contribute to the bounty.
