Harvest Party 2017

Harvest Party - 10/29/17

On Sunday, children and adults gathered on the "big grass" for some fall fun! Children played traditional relays (potato sack and egg and spoon) as well as bobbed for apples, ate donuts from strings, painted pumpkins and made smores. It has been a few years since we had our last Harvest Party, and pray that this is a tradition that stays!
