The Burden United Methodist Church held its 61st annual Lord’s Acre Fall Festival on Saturday evening, with the Blue Ribbon Bake Shop and Country Store opening at 4 p.m. Items available at the store included cookies, rolls and handmade craft items.

Overall chairperson was Leah Henderson.

Visitors began lining up at 5 p.m. for the dinner of barbecued meatballs or chicken and noodles, with side dishes and homemade desserts, organized by chairwoman Marian Hedges.

Quilts were a big feature of the auction that followed the dinner. Made by church members, quilts included a jeans quilt, patchwork pieces for K-State or KU fans, a fall quilt, a Christmas quilt and a quilt made to buyer’s design. Other items in the auction were crafts and donated gifts.

Proceeds from the dinner and auction will go to the BUMC Community Care fund, the Bill and Joanne Black Camp Fund for Kids and the general mission of the church.
