Although it was cold and wet on the morning of Country Fair, we had a great turn out for the 5K race. Sam Carter ’22 won the men’s race while Krysta Nichols ’21 was our female winner. Great job!
The fair was officially opened by our Lower School Boy Scout Troop, who recited the Pledge of Allegiance.
Due to the likeliness of very cold fingers, the Lower School string ensemble and orchestra concert moved indoors to the Walter Hall Gym where friends and family where serenaded with Suzuki and fiddle tunes. After the concert, everyone moved outside to the main stage where kindergarten through fourth-grade Spanish Immersion students sang “De Colores.”
The fair culminated with Dave McPhearson, parent of Emmy ’29 and Jules ’31, winning the pie baking contest for the second year in a row.
Thank you to all our volunteers and attendees who helped celebrate the 50th Country Fair!
