Greenfield Senior Living platinum sponsor of Oktoberfest

On Tuesday, May 2, Greenfield Senior Living of Williamsburg became a platinum sponsor of Our Saviour's Lutheran Church's Oktoberfest. Caroline Pope Sutton, director of community relations for Greenfield Senior Living, presented Pastor James P. Nickols a check for $1,000.

The Oktoberfest, now marking its fifth year, is a major fundraiser for the Senior Champion Program, a free adult care program operated in conjunction with the Colonial Heritage Community Foundation. The Senior Champion Program is offered each Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and it includes, among other programs, engagement with children from 3 to 5 years of age.

The Oktoberfest will be on Saturday, October 14, 2017 at Our Saviour's. The event will begin at 1 p.m. with a silent and live auction and includes a wine tasting by Saudé Creek Winery, and hors d'oeuvres by Custom Culinary Connections. Following the auction, the Biergarten, under a tent, will open at 3:30 p.m. with the Happy Dutchmen German band, Hirschjaeger Bavarian Dancers and Picasso Face Painting. In addition, there will be buffet of traditional German food prepared by Custom Culinary Connections, and German beer.

Reservations may be on-line at or by calling 757.564-3745 for more information. Our Saviour's is a member of the Greater Williamsburg Chamber and Tourism Alliance.
