Harvest Recycle Fest 2016: Eat. Drink. Polka.

Contributed by Terry Koch

Shine on harvest moon! Come on out to support recycling in the Mat-Su and celebrate our bountiful valley harvest! Valley Community for Recycling Solutions (VCRS) is holding its 3rd Annual Harvest Recycle Fest on Friday, September 30, from 7 to 9:30pm at the historic Palmer Depot. 

Marge Ford and the Alaska Polka Chips are ready to roll out a fun evening of entertainment and music to polka to!  Don’t know how to polka?  Don’t fret! Marge & the Chips will show you some steps, and after a couple sips of cider or beer, no one will notice or care! Oom-pa-pa!

Ticket prices are one for $50 and two for $75. Bring a polka-loving friend or a friend who could learn to love polka. There will be fresh-pressed cider from valley apples, locally crafted beer from the Mat-Su’s own Arkose Brewery, locally harvested and hearty fare, and nifty door prizes.  You can also lend your financial support to VCRS by bidding on many fabulous silent and live auction items from around Alaska.  Get cool stuff and help keep recycling alive in the Valley. 

So come on out and join us for the evening. Eat, Drink, and Polka the night away while reinforcing the importance of recycling and sustainability by supporting VCRS and its mission and vision.
