Patrick Fogarty Catholic Secondary School (PF) in Orillia held its annual Harvest on Thursday, October 4th, in the beautiful autumn weather on the school property from 4 – 7 p.m.

This is a favourite event for the school and their community.

Former PF student Bridget H. displayed her handmade wood pieces at the Harvest. Fans of Bridget’s work can follow her on Instagram (@AFarmersTouch) and see how she creates her unique rustic pieces.

PF student volunteers also sold Me to We accessories, PF Swag, and fresh foods from local farms. A handful of students including Julian B, Isabel L and Olivia M sang and played live music to add to the festive atmosphere of the Harvest. Games such as ‘Milk the Cow’, ‘Catch the Fish’ and ‘Shooting Hoops’ were also a crowd favourite, as visitors young and old participated and received a prize.

The banner image was taken just before the start of the Harvest and shows where the food was served. Guests enjoyed pulled pork and chicken on a kaiser bun, along with fresh produce and a butter tart for dessert.
