Come out and join us for a celebration! We will officially open the Arboretum at 10:30 AM with a very brief ceremony followed by a community picnic. There will be free food (donations always accepted :), an art exhibit and sale, a silent auction, and other great organizations that will be joining us as we have fun and thank all who helped create this amazing place called the Althouse Arboretum. Take the opportunity to relax, meet with neighbors, enjoy some walks along our trails and find out what the Arboretum is all about. Parking will be at the Hillside Aquatic club on Moyer Road. Shuttle service is available.
We’re having a silent auction at the picnic to raise money for the Arboretum. We already have several beautiful gift baskets donated. If you’d like to donate an item for the auction contact Nancy. A great way to advertise your business and support for the Arboretum!

The first year Easton hosted Bacon Fest, it sold out of bacon by 11:30 a.m.
The second year, all the bacon was gobbled up by 1 p.m. And that was with a crowd estimated at 17,000 people.
This year, the free festival will mark its third year by covering two days, Nov. 8-9.
And after Fest 300 named Bacon Fest as one of the top 300 festivals in the world in May, organizers are preparing for a crowd of 50,000. At a news conference Wednesday, Easton Farmers’ Market Manager Megan McBride says they expect guests to go through 30,000 pounds of bacon.
