Organize a Fund/Food raiser

A great way to have fun and support the community at the same time! Consider a Food/Fund raiser with your teammates, staff, co-workers, or classmates.

Our Events

We hold two annual events that have been incredibly well received by the community over the years:
In September with the Rancho Vignola Fruit and Nut Sale, high quality fruit, nuts and seeds are available for purchase, and can be picked up in November in time for Christmas baking, gifts, or snacking.

In December, we host Like the Dickens – a reading of the perennial Charles Dickens favorite “A Christmas Carol”. We invite the public to curl up while well known Nelsonites read the bed time story as Christmas lights twinkle all around.
