2012 Harvest Festival

 Every November, Baker and Garrison schools hold a Harvest Festival. A potluck dinner is followed by an auction with over a hundred items that range from exercise equipment to apple pies. Here are some photos from the fun evening.

The schools are in their last few days of selling See's Candy, another fundraiser. Contact a school kid or one of the schools if you'd like to buy some.

The Baker/Garrison schools Christmas program will be the evening of December 19 in Baker Hall. That's always a huge crowd-pleaser. And the Winter Carnival will be February 22.

Halloween Hayride 2012

 Here are some sights from the 2012 Halloween Hayride. We traveled around Baker, stopping at places with their lights on to go trick-or-treating. Over 25 kids went on the hayride (which prompted a few people to ask "Where did they all come from?"). We ended at the community center, where quite a few folks had joined together to put on a grand finale. It was a super fun evening!

The weather was perfect!

A Cute Denizen of Snake Valley

 I noticed this kit fox on the side of the road in Snake Valley today. I circled around, went back, and he was kind enough to let me take some photos. He's on some newly established burrows.

 He wanted to pretend I wasn't there.

I just hope he (or she) isn't too close to the road and gets run over. It's such a treat to see a kit fox, I haven't seen one in awhile. Hoping you're getting to see some wildlife this beautiful autumn.
