amilies strolling in the sunshine enjoying homemade treats. The rhythmic beat of the blacksmith’s hammer and the spontaneous sounds of delight from children. Live music, long fall shadows, and laughter. It was a beautiful day for WT’s annual Applefest. A long-standing tradition of the Parents Association, Applefest showcases the North Hills Campus at WT. This year more than 800 people from the WT community and beyond attended. Highlights included a bluegrass band, spinner, beekeeper, cooper, petting zoo, hayrides, and of course, apples! A crowd favorite was Bear Cub Story Time hosted by alumna Abby Robinson Foster ’03 and the Young Alum Leadership Circle. Special thanks to Co-Chairs Angie Hubbard and Jenny Reddy, to the Planning Committee for their leadership and dedication, and to each of the volunteers.
