Celebrating the Bay Farm Community
The leaves are starting to change here on campus and October is officially upon us. To continue our year of celebrating what makes Bay Farm unique, this month we will be focusing on COMMUNITY. One thing that we feel sets Bay Farm apart, is our strong sense of community and connectedness. We find it extremely important to create an environment where children feel welcome, safe, and loved. Through respectful and supportive relationships and common purposes and ideals, the Bay Farm community continues to thrive and grow.
Here are ways to stay involved in the Bay Farm COMMUNITY this month:
- Bay Farm Pumpkin Stroll: Open to the public, join us on Friday, October 26 at 7pm for our first ever Bay Farm Pumpkin Stroll. We will be hosting Family Pumpkin Carving on Campus Tuesday, 10/23 and Thursday, 10/25 and will be displaying our pumpkins throughout our Peace Path. After the stroll on Friday, stick around for our super-scary haunted house as well!
- Annual 5k By the Bay and Halloween Celebration: Our 14th Annual 5k Run by the Bay in memory of Royce Whitaker is Saturday, October 27. This event celebrates Royce Whitaker, a beloved student of Bay Farm whose life was cut short in a tragic accident in 2009. To commemorate his life, the race is held each year to celebrate the joy, compassion, and the unquenchable curiosity of Royce and all of the students at Bay Farm. This USATF-sanctioned race begins and ends on the Bay Farm campus and runs along beautiful Bay Road in Duxbury. To register, click here.
