A New Fall Tradition for NHS?

  It was a busy week at New Hope-Solebury High School. However, the week was coming to an end on Saturday Night, with the homecoming dance. Before the big dance, there was one last event: the Fall Fest. From 11 to 3, in the field next to the stadium, student government held their first annual fall fest. Each club and team was in charge of setting up a booth. There was a huge variety in the stands. Some did food sales, selling foods such as baked goods, pretzels, and caramel apples. Meanwhile, other groups held activities. Guests could decorate pumpkins, smash pumpkins, or try to win a pet gold fish. These were just some of the many things that people in the community could pay to participate in. “There were a lot of good stands and it was a great chance for all the clubs to raise money. Hope the tradition continues next year,” commented Bailey Hendricks. All the money raised went to whichever team was running the booth. Overall, it was a fun way for teams and clubs to raise money.

  Meanwhile, the junior class was having a fundraiser of their own. High school students were getting intense at the volleyball tournament. Three courts were set up on the field for the eleven teams to battle it out. At the end of the event, New Hope Fitness was crowned the champions. Fall Fest turned out to be  an exciting day for the students and community of New Hope-Solebury High School. Everyone had smiles on their faces while fundraising and had a great time!
