Business Update

Hello Friends,

It has been an exciting journey over the 38 years we have been in business! And what a pleasure executing every type of event for every category of customer. Thank you!

The Acorn Farms Event Venue property has been sold. The buyer (Mount Joy Gift & Thrift) will establish a retail store operation here in the future. Our event and catering business will operate until October 7th. An auction of building contents will commence September 18th and conclude October 18th. We are still open for events until the October wind down of business. Any customers with reservations post October 7 have already been contacted.

I am excited to be working closely with Cameron Estate Inn to transfer our venue business. Most of you know that the Inn is located very nearby in East Donegal Township. I will personally reach out to many of you over the next several weeks to introduce you to the Cameron Estate Inn. Their venue has multiple event spaces and accommodates up to 250 guests. In addition to weddings, Cameron also hosts banquets, corporate and holiday events. With 24 overnight guest rooms, they are well equipped to work with you. Like us, Cameron Estate Inn’s goal is to bring dreams to reality. I look forward to working with you again at Cameron!

Cameron is a historic property with many meeting and reception spaces. It is located on 16 beautiful acres complete with a spring garden, Italian fountain, stone bridge, and wonderful indoor conservatory.

Cameron is also planning to operate a similar Thanksgiving take-out program this year—details to follow. Our annual Daughter Dance will move to Cameron Inn as well next March.

If you need a referral for Off-Site catered events, please let me know.

I intend to stay active in hospitality for at least a few more years and hope our paths cross again.
