On Friday Sept. 14, 2018, four members of the DGFS – Morgan Park Garden Club served as judges at the annual St. James Catholic School Harvest Festival. Children in grades PreK- 8 displayed their fruit, flower, vegetable and novelty entries to show their summer labors. Entries ranged from flower arrangements, novelty items with tiny fairy gardens, baked, canned goods & dehydrated fruits, jellies, and baskets of vegetables, to giant squash and pumpkins.
The children received ribbons for awards and participating, and written certificates for Best of Show and Best of Categories. The rest of the school classrooms toured all of the entries throughout the day.
