2023 Fall Fair, Sun. Sept. 10, noon to 6pm, Margaret Fairley Park

HVRA celebrated its annual community gathering in Margaret Fairley Park on September 10.  Attendees came out on a crisp, sunny afternoon to enjoy BBQ, live music, an amazing array of silent auction prizes, kids’ activities, and useful info from Gardeners, Net Zero, NAGS Players, and CTS Swim. Many thanks to our organizing team Anne Fleming, Karen Laurence, Cathy Merkley, and Christian Mueller, plus our many volunteers, musicians, and donors for creating another successful event! Thanks to all who made the event a great success!
These images show what it was like! (See also the wonderful lineup of musicians and the list of silent-auction donors.)
