Our annual Harvest Festival yesterday had record visitor attendance yesterday!
We thank all the organizations who spent the day with us, spreading the word about their organizations and providing family-friendly activities. Families loved all the free games and crafts, and the pumpkin painting station and 4-H pen were especially popular! Patrick Remer's story time was packed to the gills in the house (we've already decided to do it outdoors next year!). A big thank you to the Lions Club for providing the hot dog stand, and a shout out to Tom McVeigh and Maxine Chan for their charming folk songs on guitar. John Burgh was new this year with his vintage truck and rope-making station. Thanks to the urban farm up the hill for providing impromptu tours and mini-talks about organic farming and healthy soil. Most of all, thanks to you, the public, for all your support and enthusiasm. Happy autumn, everyone!
Here's a link to some beautiful photographs from the day, thanks to Hal Jeffrey and his son, Mark Jeffrey. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1gsLB_DZPnLh-tsLr3Lu7aDM979YqEUwl?usp=sharing
