The Greens Sale has been a beloved Winterfest tradition since the beginning, and we look forward to its continuation at FriendsFest 2019! Thanksgiving centerpieces, holiday wreaths, and other holiday decorations will be available. Volunteers will be needed for the annual bow-making and decorations workshops leading up to the event and for the Greens Market on November 9.
Building upon the excitement of the first pie eating contest in 2017, this year's contest will feature Wildebeest (adults and Upper School students), Junior Beest (Middle School students) and Mini Beest (Lower School students) competitions. Volunteers will be needed to order pies and organize the contest.
