Farvest Hall, a S2 tradition
Last Saturday, we celebrated the beauty of the changing of the seasons with a fall harvest celebration, known at Summit Semester as the Farvest Hall. To start the day, the girls gave all of the guys a special surprise. They treated all of us to a breakfast in our honor that they personally cooked and served accompanied by specially planned music and followed by an award ceremony to recognize some of our qualities. All this was a great surprise to the guys and greatly appreciated.
After breakfast, we went outdoors for a pumpkin carving contest and a shooting competition. Those were followed by games such as the three-legged race, the egg and spoon race, and an egg toss, which ended with most of us covered in egg yolk. (Those who broke their eggs were kind enough to share the mess with others.)
After a light lunch, we resumed the activities, including a very competitive game of bobbing for apples and then making caramel apples.
We ended the Farvest Hall that night with a costume party. We enjoyed apple cider, bratwurst, potato pancakes with sour cream and applesauce, cakes, and pies, while participating in games like the cakewalk, ball toss, and a fishing station with witty messages from our creative staff.
Saturday was a great time to have fun and fellowship with each other, showing us how much the staff wants us not just to learn new things and grow in our faith, but to enjoy every minute of it.
