HARVEST FEST

The 11th annual Harvest Fest was one of the best ever! Sunny weather, a great crop in a beautiful setting , and a record turnout made for a great day of picking, pressing, and potluck on Saturday. 240 people of all ages came and went during the day, arriving early and leaving late into the afternoon.

Though Valley Music Night was cancelled due to the cosmic convergence of most of the musicians being unavailable, Poetry Night on Sunday evening was a relaxing and enjoyable evening of 25 folks sharing, listening, and reading a variety of poetry.

Harvest Fest photos can be accessed without signing in and without downloading by clicking HERE.

Many thanks to all of you who contributed to the setup, cleanup, and all the many things that need to be done; it was a team effort!
