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 the fundraising needs of the school.

This year, we held the 70th Quaker Village Auction on our campus.  It was a wonderful, electrifying weekend filled with activities for the whole family.  Whether you wanted a homemade maple bar, check out the silent auction or certificate booth, bid in the live auction for a quilt, class art, furniture, jars of honey and jam, or Lindy’s famous cinnamon rolls, there was something for everyone.  We are happy to announce that we brought in $195,100 this year and we are grateful for everyone’s help.  We also received our $40,000 Heart of Giving Challenge Match and we have met that!  We are excited for how the Lord blessed our 70th year. 

We are grateful for all of the volunteers who helped make this happen.  For the students who served before and during the auction in various areas.  For our parents who help with the class baskets, set up, clean up, food booths, and providing donations.  Without all of this help, it’s hard to make this special weekend happen.
