We were happy to see many alumni back on campus for the 2017 Fall Fair! We had 62 in our annual photo, including several members of the Class of 1972, who had their own reunion the weekend of the Fair. Several alumni performed as part of the Fair's musical entertainment, and were were grateful that many alumni and and alumni parents volunteered to staff activities as well, including the Class of 2017 helping at the moon bounce!
We hope to see you at next year's Fall Fair!
