For the nonprofit groups that manned the concession stands at the Artz farm over the weekend, the commemoration of the 135th anniversary of the Battle of Antietam proved to be the mother of all fund-raisers.
"From what I can gather, I'd say we did remarkably well," said Bill Graham, president of the North Hagerstown High School Athletic Boosters.
Graham estimated the group grossed between $30,000 and $35,000 in food sales. He said an army of 70 to 80 volunteers helped set up on Thursday and worked until the end of the event on Sunday.
