Autumn weather has arrived, and accompanying it are the annual fall festivities! What is a college student away from home to do? There are many opportunities here in Georgetown to get involved with the community and celebrate the coming of the new season. One great opportunity is the Quest Farm Festival. Quest Farm is hosting its annual Harvest Days Festival this month. The festival will be open Saturday, Sept. 22 from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m., and Sunday Sept. 23, from 1 p.m. until 4 p.m. at 627 Glass Pike.
Lara Ingram, a spokesperson for Quest Farm, expressed excitement and high expectations for the festival. “The goal of this event is to open our organization to the public, and to welcome the people of our community to see what an amazing place Quest Farm can be for adults with developmental/intellectual disabilities,” she said. Quest began in 1984, and the festival became a tradition soon after. Quest Farm is currently a home for 20 adults with developmental disabilities. Their involvement in the community does not stop there. Quest offers Adult Day Training services during the week, which are supported employment and community
living support services that create person-centered plans in order to best assist each individual in accomplishing their personal goals. The Harvest Days Festival is an opportunity for the participants to show off what they have made or grown. The festival will also be presenting live music, games, crafts, shirts and more. If you like flowers, you will also enjoy the mum sale.
Lara also emphasized, “Quest has a long history in Georgetown, and the people who reside there are active members of the community of Georgetown. We invite everyone to come out and enjoy themselves at Harvest Days.”
