First Annual Harvest Fest: Fund-raiser and Friend-raiser!
Despite torrential rains on October 4th, 85 guests and volunteers enjoyed a wonderful evening of live music, great food and silent auction winnings. Attendees enjoyed a positive and comfortable atmosphere while supporting the programs at AMSJ. Guests were given tours of the expansive facility and realized the potential for increased student population, retreats and summer camps. Among the award winners were Andrea Isaacs of Cloud Nine catering, for her assistance with culinary instruction during the transformation to a clinical day school and Paul Truglio of Citizen’s Bank for serving on the AMSJ Board for over 10 years and providing financial advice .
