Pumpkins, donuts, apple cider and a hayride pulled by an antique tractor were highlights of Otisville Elementary’s second annual Fall Festival, held Oct. 6 and 7.
Pumpkins sparkled under bright sunny skies as each student selected his/her favorite to bring home. Students, their teachers and PTO volunteers were also treated to a ride on a 1941 McCormick Farmall tractor and wagon with traditional fall snacks of apple cider and apple cinnamon donuts.
“This is a true team effort,” said Principal Julia Downey. “We would like to thank Soons Orchard, Price Chopper, Dogwood Acres and the PTO volunteers for helping us with our festival. Thank you to the Otisville Lion’s Club for donating the use of the tractor that took our students on the hayride.”
Otisville PTO President Vincent Galligan added: “These events are made possible through the support of our wonderful businesses and PTO families who support our work to provide additional educational programs and family activities. Otisville’s administration, faculty and staff are the best there is, and we’re proud to be partnering with them to give our children the best educational experiences we can.”
