PFO PUMPKIN FESTIVAL - AMAZING!!
AMAZING! After a week of turbulent weather, the sun came out to smile on the 2016 HKIS 50th Anniversary PFO Pumpkin Festival! The PFO was thrilled to organize the first of our major HKIS community events and to be able to hold it after an unpredictable week leading up to the event. Despite the logistical challenges leading up to this year’s festival, it was our most successful Pumpkin Festival ever and it was all because of you! Thank you to all who supported the event by attending, volunteering, performing or as sponsors or vendors!
Thank you for all the delicious baked/made goods for the Bake Sale - with such a wonderful variety to select from, it continues to be a popular destination at the festival. We have also been blessed with loads of book donations and items for the Boo-tique, thank you for your generosity!
We couldn’t run these festivals without the tremendous support and energy from our volunteers! Student volunteers from MS + HS play a key role in helping to set-up, run and tear-down the event. Again this year, students role modeled creativity and collaboration! There was an amazing pool of students who helped out wholeheartedly and with great attitudes.
The same is true for our many adult volunteers. A sincere thanks to all of you who took a shift (or a few) to keep the Pumpkin Festival running smoothly! Extra special thanks to those that came in on Thursday to start set up and those that came in early with the sun on Saturday to make sure everything was in place for a BOOtastic time to be had by all!
We also want to thank our extremely generous sponsors and our food partners. We thank you all from the bottom of our orange-tinted hearts for your continued support of the HKIS community!
The PFO's deepest thanks and gratitude go out to the SPOOKtacular members of the Pumpkin Festival Committee for their creativity, energy, collaboration, resilience and positive attitude. You have role modeled the HKIS Vision through your dedication and hard work. Thank you, thank you!
Thank you one and all and please mark your calendars NOW for the World’s Fair on April 1, 2017!
Enjoy your Pumpkins & Happy Halloween!
