Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School is going green again with a fall festival — FALLFEST.
The Environmental Club at the high school will host its second annual FALLFEST on Saturday, Oct. 13, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Held on the high school's front football field, the event will feature vendors offering fresh organic products as well as crafts, jewelry, smoothies, ice cream, honey, and more.
Many local environmental organizations will be on hand to spread awareness about pressing global issues and to gain involvement and support.
A number of Rumson-Fair Haven student organizations will participate as well by providing information and offering face painting for children. The R-FH Key Club organized a food drive at the high school and will be collecting donations of nonperishable food items at FALLFEST.
There will also be a raffle with a number of valuable prizes thanks to the generosity of local businesses.
In anticipation of this year's FALLFEST, the R-FH French National Honor Society organized and attended a lecture by Pierre and Terry Leroy, founders of the Haitian People's Support Project.
These students will be hosting a FALLFEST booth to share what they have learned about the project's efforts to improve the lives of the children in Haiti and to combat the country's deforestation.
Admission is free, and all funds raised will go toward the support of the environmental groups Impact Oasis and Ducks Unlimited, as well as R-FH Environmental Club scholarships.
The RFH Environmental Club is a student organization dedicated to promoting environmental awareness and initiating change.
Impact Oasis is a non-profit organization providing autistic individuals with meaningful work, peaceful residences, and community interaction through the establishment of farm centers. Ducks Unlimited is a world leader in wetlands and waterfowl conservation.
