Dinner in the Fields Set for Friday, August 7, 2015

WILMINGTON, OHIO. June 29, 2015 – Dinner in the Fields, an annual harvest celebration orchestrated by the Clinton County Leadership Institute (CCLI) and friends, is set for Friday, August 7, 2015, at the Larrick Family Farm in Leesburg, Ohio.

The annual event is now in its seventh year and will start with a social hour at 5:30. Guests will be treated to locally sourced appetizers and be able to purchase Ohio wines and Craft Beers by the glass. Dinner – cooked on site – will feature roasted ears of corn, pork, beef and chicken along with fresh vegetables, breads and more. Homemade ice cream is included with dinner. You may want to pair it with a specialty dessert available at the pie auction.

“The Pie Auction is always a big hit,” said Carol Earhart. “We have a wealth of great local talent and the desserts (because they are not all pies) are absolutely wonderful.”

 “This event has been a wonderful gathering year after year,” said Event Chair Diane Murphy. “It showcases our local produce, a local farm and brings back the simple fun of a good old-fashioned picnic with the community.”

Music will be provided throughout the evening. Tables and chairs are available under the tent, or feel free to bring your own blankets or chairs. This family-friendly evening will kick off the harvest season in Clinton County.

Tickets are $25 in advance for adults and $5.00 for children 3-10, and may be purchased by contacting the CCLI office at 937-382-7120 or at the Cotton Junky Quilt Shop 366-6302. Tickets are also available the night of the event for $30 each. Dinner in the Fields is a community project and a fund raiser for the Clinton County Leadership Institute.
