Although Banyan could not host our usual gathering at the apple orchard, we were able to bring the orchard to Banyan! Staff gathered to host a “drive-thru” event with families that included a photo booth, baking kits, treats for the kids, and plenty of pumpkins and apples! Families got to take home supplies to make their own caramel apples – a favorite annual treat. And, both parents and kids came dressed in their best Halloween costumes.

We were grateful to connect and gather safely outside on a gorgeous day. It was wonderful to see families coming together to celebrate fall with Banyan and create new traditions like this Harvest Festival!
