    Attention Lovers of Spoutwood Farm Center:

    We are in need of clothing for scarecrow making at the Mother Earth Fall Festival, a favorite & free activity offered to the kids at the festival on September 20th & 21st, 2014.

    Children and youth clothes work best because of their smaller size, and long sleeves and pants are preferable. Fun accessories are welcome as well. Clothes with stains and smaller tears are just fine!

    If you can donate any clothes, please contact Charissa Bowman, Fall Festival Administrative Coordinator at 717-521-2247 or via email at charissacbowman@gmail.com. Clothing can be dropped off at Spoutwood Farm in Glen Rock, PA or a pick-up can be arranged if necessary.

    Thanks for considering a donation!

    3. Galaxies and Nebulae  We are pleased to report the return to action of our 20" Dobsonian reflecting telescope after surviving a large ash tree falling on the roof of its shed.  Miraculously only minor damage was done to the roof; after a thorough cleaning the telescope works perfectly.  Don't miss the stunning views of deep space offered by this excellent telescope!
