Fun at the Fall Festival
By: Tia Allain
This past Sunday, October 2nd, South Lancaster Academy’s annual Fall Festival took place at the AUC field house from 10:00AM to 3:00PM. It was a profitable event for most classes, with a variety of different foods and activities or raffles taking place around and outside the field house. Grades 6 -12 all participated in the Fall Festival.
For their fundraiser, the Seniors did the traditional jail thanks to students J.P. Viteri, Eduardo Cunha, Tiya Quittmeyer, and Melissa Steitz. Their class also sold pizza and were able to sell all their stock. Together, the jail and pizza made about $300.
For the first time the Sixth Grade participated in the Fall Festival selling ice cream and pastries The students were eager and excited to participate and their mothers were very encouraging throughout the day.
The class that made the most money for the day was Eighth Grade. They made around $600, with a variety of different items and foods that you could chose from. Students Deanna Brown and Jared Allain agreed that Fall Festival was “Lots of fun!”
For the first time, churches were welcome to sell things during the Fall Festival. Flea markets and different food choices were sold by the College Church and Lancaster Portuguese Church.
When asked, students’ comments ranged greatly on the subject. “I think people started to get tired by the end” Senior Brittany Madden said when asked about the length of the event, which was 5 hours.
Senior JP Viteri didn’t particularly like the Fall Festival on a Sunday this year. “Move it back to Saturday night!”
All in all, most people had fun at Fall Festival and enjoyed trying all the different foods and games available. Many students are eagerly awaiting next years’ Fall Festival and hoping it will be even better!
