Farm Appreciation Party 2017

This year’s Farm Appreciation Party was one to remember thanks to our extraordinarily awesome community. First and foremost, thanks to everyone who came out to enjoy Bloom Community Farm and made the evening truly special, thanks to our generous sponsor, D. L. Evans Bank, to Hal Jardine & Sun Valley Resort for the delicious appetizers, Bigwood Bread Bakery and Cafe for everyone’s favorite bread, thanks to S&C Wines and Sawtooth Brewery for keeping our glasses full, to Andrew Sheppard Music for laying it down, to Charlotta Harris, Judy Cahill, and Tyler Michael Hendricks for documenting the evening (@Charlotta’s beautiful photos here), to Mike McKenna for hauling and tapping the keg, then to Lance Thompson for troubleshooting, to our amazing board (McNair Livingston Bailey, @Deb Robertson, Laurie Strand, Craig Eastop, @Todd Stewart, Elizabeth Huish, @Linda Edwards) who stepped in and welcomed guests, tended bar, managed parking, helped setup and break down, to the local companies who donated raffle prizes as an extra special thank you for our wonderful volunteers, and to our staff who sure can throw a mean party: Noel Jensen, Megan Schooley, Krista Felton, Lynea Petty, Naomi Spence, Brooke Pace McKenna, Jeanne Ernst Liston, Sierra Schuckert, Sharon Dohse, @Abbie Mallory, and the ever-bloomin’ Bloom Youth Project interns!
