The first annual "Songs For The Schoolhouse" Harvest Dinner & Celebrity Yardsale will be September 9th, 2018. It is a fundraiser for the new Hardison Mill Schoolhouse that opens the next day.




On Sunday, September 9th, there will be a four-course, chef catered  Harvest Dinner in the field behind Rory’s farmhouse for 200 people to benefit the beautiful new schoolhouse that was built for Rory’s daughter Indiana (and a dozen other children in the community) with the money that was graciously given when Joey passed. The event is to raise money to help supplement a portion of the teacher’s salaries, the children’s tuitions and create spaces for gardens and animals and the outdoor learning that we are hoping to provide at the school.  Before the dinner there will be opportunity to view the schoolhouse and surrounding areas. On the dinner grounds, Rory will be doing a special, intimate “Songs For The Schoolhouse” music set after dinner.
