In fall, two annual events – the Harker Harvest Festival and Homecoming – brought many alumni together, where they enjoyed reconnecting with the Harker community.
At the end of September, Harker’s Homecoming game was held on Davis Field, where alumni were warmly welcomed home during a family-friendly tailgate party. Several dozen alumni turned out for the party, where they enjoyed dinner, mingled with faculty and staff, and watched the Eagles’ winning game.
Then in mid-October, alumni returned for the Harker Harvest Festival, the school’s 64th annual Family & Alumni Picnic. More than 100 alumni attended the daylong event, held on the middle school campus. During the picnic there was a special area reserved for alumni, with a delicious barbecue. Many alumni also volunteered at the picnic, working in shifts at various booths.
Alumni at both events agreed that a fun time was had by all!
