Fall Festival Donations Needed In October, Fernway School will celebrate the new year with our Fall Festival and Silent Auction, the year’s biggest fundraiser and favorite event. We are looking for parents to help with the Silent Auction by soliciting restaurants, stores and other local vendors to donate great items for our auction.
