Harvest dance raises funds for Maxwell recreation

Keeping the tradition alive in Maxwell is an arduous task.

In the 1940s, the Maxwell Swimming Pool Association hosted privileged pheasant hunting for an annual membership fee of $7.50 as a way to keep the pool open for children and families to enjoy in the summertime.

Although no one at Saturday’s After Harvest Dinner and Dance was quite sure when that tradition ended, none were surprised that other fundraisers have developed over the years to serve the same purpose – to keep recreational opportunities available for children.

While the third annual After Harvest Dinner and Dance on Saturday was enjoyable to those who attended, it didn’t quite garner the growth Maxwell Park and Recreation District had hoped for a recurring event.

“We had about the same number of people as last year,” Director Kyle Miller said.

Volunteers served a generous portion of tri-tip, sausage, baked beans, salad, bread and dessert, and those who attended enjoyed the music of DJ Kent Boes and a variety of adult refreshments.

The raffle and silent auction were the highlights of the event, with generous donations from dozens of merchants, residents, and businesses.

“Our local businesses really stepped up,” said Director Andre Young. “They really opened their pockets to help us out. It was awesomeness.”

Park and Recreation directors said they might make some changes to next year’s event, or possibly look for another weekend to see if they could pick up attendance.

Saturday’s event did compete with a number of events going on in Colusa County, including the Arbuckle Car Show and Museum’s Mystery Dinner fundraiser.

“We would like to see more people attend our events, so we will talk about it at our next meeting,” Miller said.

Proceeds from fundraisers allow the district to continue recreation opportunities, such as basketball and swimming, he said.
