    Harvest season is known as a time of celebration for a variety of cultures, including Rice Harvest in Indonesia; the autumn festival in China, Taiwan, and Vietnam; the Yam Festival in Papua New Guinea and the “Posviceni” festival in the Czech Republic. The festivals are a way of giving thanks for the bounty received, but more than anything it is a way for people to come together and celebrate their hard work, and show gratitude to family, friends, and neighbors.
    As we gathered for our Harvest Celebration at Loyal Heights, the feeling of family was all around. Teachers dressed students in their "chicken outfits", parents cooked and served food, ran activities, and registered families. And all of our children were dancing, playing, and sharing memories with friends. It was a beautiful sight to see—all of us celebrating the diversity and resiliency of our community.
    As I walked around, I saw the happiness and pride that everyone felt in being part of the Beaver Nation. Thank you for allowing me to be part of such a wonderful community gathering.
    Please do take the time at home to reflect on all the things and people we are thankful for, as well as life experiences that have given power and strength to be where we are today. This is a great time to celebrate YOU, Loyal Heights!
