The Annual Prosper Valley (formerly Pomfret) Harvest Supper is served family style in the Pomfret Town Hall and includes all the fixings of a traditional turkey dinner with turkey, dressing, gravy, squash, potatoes, coleslaw, homemade breads and rolls, and numerous delectable homemade pies.
In the early 1970’s a group of parents got together to start the first kindergarten in Pomfret. The Town agreed to allow a class to be held in the Town Hall building, however, the Town was not able to fund the kindergarten teacher’s salary.
Not to be discouraged, the pioneers that started the Pomfret Kindergarten found ways of funding their dream, which included proceeds from a Harvest Supper.
We're excited to have joined communities in one school now titled the Prosper Valley School. The Harvest Supper is the PTO’s main fundraiser, now in it’s 43rd year.
Annually the PTO supports many vital school programs. About 25% of the funds are allotted to class allowances, where teachers decide how to spend that money to enrich their class programs. Additionally, Harvest Supper contributions help reduce the cost of attending Pentangle and Lebanon Opera House productions, and to purchase new library books.
