Members of the local community are invited to participate in a celebration of the fall season scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 13, on the campus of The Harvey School in Katonah.
As part of the school’s annual Homecoming Weekend celebration, Harvey will host a 5K Fun Run, a farmers market, special activities for children, and complimentary food and beverages for area residents and members of the school community, past and present.
