Proudly wearing their Ford Scholar rings and varying shades of purple, a dozen Ford Scholar Alumni met up at Bauman’s Farm and Garden in Gervais, Ore., on Saturday, Oct. 11 for the annual autumn alumni social gathering.
The clouds burned off, and it turned into a sunny afternoon. Members of the Ford Scholar Alumni Association Board staffed the FSAA table inside the food court with a front and center view of the fiddle players. Alumni came and went throughout the day. Some picked out pumpkins while others tasted apple cider as the kids navigated the hay bale maze.
“We had great food – apple cider donuts, roasted squash and pumpkin rolls – and even better conversations,” said FSAA Member at Large Michelle Bolduc Culaba.
