Harvest Hunt VOLUNTEERS: We honor all 110 of you!! With a week's notice, you made the time, made the commitment, and made the First Annual Harvest Hunt a reality. With one more day of the Harvest Hunt to go, their is a buzz of excitement in the air--not only because the kids are having a blast, but also because it's proof positive that the Duffy Volunteer Squad didn't need much time to brush the pandemic dust off and get back to making memories for Duffy Dragons. 
A special thanks to Carolyn O'Sullivan who was integral to the event's success, as well as Molly Towne, Shannon Pecorelli, Tiffany Dammerall, & Alison and Andrew Bethke who helped with conception and execution. Finally, thanks to all of the Duffy Staff & Teachers who supported this new tradition, especially Kristi Laverty, Brittney Bliss, Leslie Carpenter, and Duff the Dragon for their time and guidance. 


One Year, One Time! If you want to submit a shout-out to someone making Duffy better, please email Sarah Dolan, PTO President.
