The Oklahoma Heritage Farm Fall Festival returns again at the end of September and runs through Nov. 2. The festival is located just five miles south of Ramona and has events for the entire family to enjoy. Their ten-acre corn maze is unbelievably cool this year. This past weekend Caney Valley Student Samantha Graves and Bishop Kelley student Cynthia Kishner worked on some of the pumpkin hay bales for the entrance of the Fall Festival. They did an amazing job. Go to http://okheritagefarm.com/maze-pumpkin-patch-entertainment/ for more information.
Congratulations to all the students and adults who entered items at the Washington County Free Fair. Also a big thank you to the Free Fair board members for all their hard work. It definitely was a STEMtastic time.
