17th Annual Fall Festival all Loads of Fun and prizes!
On Saturday, October 21st, the HFCS PTA held its seventeenth 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 The Kiwanis.
The raffle items were a big hit – and the winners of them were quite pleased – The Pamper Me Package; won by Laurie Hodges; a Will Moses Print; won by Fran Knapp, The Snowy Day Package; won by Callen Aubin, The Outdoor Package; won by Penny Daupe, the 50/50 raffle; won by Amy Netti (who graciously donated it back to the PTA), and the teacher who’s decorated pumpkin was selected by popular vote was Kindergarten teachers Mrs. Burdo, Mrs. Baker and Mrs. Stratton for “Mr. Facin”. Each of the vendors also awarded door prizes. 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 Potter Hill Barn, Peg Caron's Custom Designs, Herrington’s Pumpkins, Maggie's Beauty Salon, Willard Mountain, Silvano’s Restaurant, Massage For You, Ken Wickenden, Rob Viera and Kiwanis.
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.
