16th Annual Fall Festival a Big Hit for All!
On Saturday, October 22, the HFCS PTA held its sixteenth annual Fall Festival with HFCS bustling with over 400 attendees with vendors selling their wares, kids doing craft projects, some amazing pumpkin displays, and everyone enjoying baked goods made by many volunteers and food provided by Hoosick Falls School students and Apple Fries.
The raffle items were a big hit – and the winners of them were quite pleased – The Pamper Me prize; won by Shelly Tate; a Will Moses Print; won by Amy Netti, The Family Night Package; won by Karen Cottrell, The Party Package; won by Mary Capehart, The Date Night package; won by Stephanie Sigot, the 50/50 raffle; won by Carolyn Church, and the winner of the pumpkin decorating contest selected by popular vote was Mrs. Bushey's 1st grade classroom. They were awarded an ice cream party. Congratulations to all the winners!
The ultimate winners, though, are the students of HFCS and our community. The PTA continues its commitment to families and helping to bring them together with friends for some fun, to meet new people, and to buy great local products. Although the purpose of this event isn’t to raise money, what is raised helps the PTA continue its financial support of classrooms and to bring special programs to the children and parents in our school district.
The PTA would like to extend thanks to all the local businesses and groups who offered their support, talents, and products including Great Escape Lodge & Indoor Water Park, Herrington's Pumpkins, Peg Caron Custom Framing, Maggie's Beauty Shop, Massage For You, Jonah Spivak & Family, Nordica's Cakes, Jenny O'Connor, Jody Bounds Photography, Stewarts, Hawkins House, Courtney Wynn Photography, and the many vendors for their participation.
Special thanks goes to the dedicated HFCS Custodial Staff. In addition, the PTA couldn’t get the festival off the ground each year without the tireless efforts of its many dedicated volunteers, students and the generous support of the vendors and school personnel.
