Kimberton Fair Canceled

For only the second time in the Kimberton Fair’s 90+ years (WWII) we are sad to announce this year’s fair has been canceled.

Official statement from the Fair Board below:

It is with great sadness that we announce the cancellation of the 2020 Kimberton Community Fair. This was an extremely difficult decision based on many factors, but first and foremost on community safety and fiscal responsibility. Without clear guidance from governing authorities, we simply do not have the resources to continue to prepare for an event that may not be safely or legally permitted. We are incredibly grateful for the continued support of our patrons, volunteers, exhibitors, and concessionaires, and we look forward to seeing our community next year from July 26-31, 2021.

May 2020 Donut Sale Canceled

Due to the continued threat of the COVID-19 virus in our region, the May 18 & 19 donut sale is canceled. We will continue to post here as updates about future sales become available.

We urge everyone to follow government guidelines to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

April Donut Day Canceled

The April 27-28 “Donut Day Sale” is canceled.

The sale dates fall within the Governor’s “Stay At Home” order which runs through April 30. Neither our volunteers nor our customers would be able to come out. Plus the Fire Company buildings are still closed to the public.

While our daily routines have drastically changed, and there is so much disappointment with all the cancellations and closures, the one thing that is not canceled this month is EASTER! While it may look different than other years, it is still a time for rejoicing! So take the time to celebrate however you can.

Our volunteers are working hard to keep themselves and their families safe so that we can get back to the business of making donuts.

Our donuts miss you!

March Donut Day Sale Canceled

Our top priority is you…our volunteers and our customers. Therefore, after careful consideration, the decision has been made to cancel the March Donut Day sale in light of the coronavirus pandemic.

We are continuing to monitor the situation through the Chester County Health Department and will keep you notified of the status the April donut sale as things progress.

We care about each and every one of you, so please be sure you are following the recommended health protocols to keep you and your family safe.

In Memoriam Barbara Feather, Dedicated Volunteer

Barbara Feather

Long-time Auxiliary member Barbara Feather died on Tuesday, October 15 in Seasons Hospice in Phoenixville Hospital after suffering two strokes. She was 79 years old.

Barbara joined the Auxiliary because the fire company responded to a fire call at her residence in Charlestown Hunt. She wanted to “give back” to the organization that helped her. A few years later she recruited her sister Dottie and brother-in-law Rich Regetta to also start volunteering with the Auxiliary.

Barbara will most be remembered for her work with the donuts both for the Auxiliary monthly sales and during the Kimberton Fair. She managed orders, answered phone calls, and helped assign the volunteers as they arrived for their shifts. She would arrive well before sunrise on donut days to prepare for the 6 am customer pick-ups. She enjoyed working with the other volunteers behind the scenes on scheduling donut volunteers and updating the online ordering website. Barbara went above and beyond to make sure every customer received their correct order. She was also diligent in keeping track of the cash receipts, bank deposits and quantity of donuts sold each month. Her last time with us was during the September donut sale when she worked the Monday night shift. True to form, she promptly emailed out the sale report on Tuesday afternoon.

Barbara was an active member who regularly attended the monthly Auxiliary meetings and helped with events that the Auxiliary catered such as banquets, receptions and luncheons. She was also a loyal helper with the competitive entry check-in days for the Fair.

The family has requested that memorial contributions be made in Barbara’s name to Kimberton Fire Company. It is an honor to know that she thought so much of our organization.

Services will be held on Friday, October 25 at Campbell-Ennis-Klotzbach Funeral Home, Inc., Phoenixville.
Memorial service is at 11:30 am with a visitation from 10 am – 11:30 am.

***LUNCHEON VOLUNTEERS NEEDED***
Unfortunately the Covered Bridge Room rental schedule does not permit us to host Barbara’s funeral luncheon at the firehouse. Arrangements have been made for the luncheon to be held at First United Methodist Church on Main Street, Phoenixville.

We will need volunteers to assist with managing the catered food and also to bake desserts. Please let me know if you can help.
