In 1951, leaders at Greenleaf Friends Academy had a need to raise funds for a new Academy school building. They decided to hold a “public sale” that was held at the home of M. H. Dillion’s home in Greenleaf. That became the first auction of many for the Academy. 70 years later, we continue with the beloved annual tradition of the auction for fundraising needs of the school.

This 70th year is no exception. Make plans now to attend the 70th Annual Quaker Village Auction (QVA) scheduled for March 12 and 13, 2021 on the campus of Greenleaf Friends Academy. It is going to be live and in-person with the traditional auction we all love and look forward to each year. Freshly made maple bars, food booths, silent auction, live auction, kid’s carnival, class baskets, elementary class art, cake contest, pancake breakfast, and Quaker quilts, including the Senior Class quilt are the stars of the weekend.

Volunteers are needed for the event, set up, tear down, manning booths, and helping on the auction floor. Use this Sign-up Genius link to sign up to volunteer for the auction:
