In the blink of an eye, another summer has come to an end. While there is plenty to miss about the summer season, there is certainly much to look forward to in the autumn months ahead (Packer football, pumpkin spice lattes, and trips to the apple farm, to name a few!) But perhaps the thing people most associate (and most look forward to) about the autumn season at Milwaukee Catholic Home is the Fall Harvest Festival.   

Our annual Fall Harvest Festival on Tuesday, October 12th from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm celebrates the harvest from Clare Gardens, our organic farm-to-table community garden!  

There are many ways you can participate in this beloved event both virtually and in person! Many items, such as pumpkins, chili, soup kids, spiced pecans, Thanksgiving pies, honey, and charcuterie boards will be available for sale on the A Life Engaged website! Simply place your order online and pick it up curbside at Milwaukee Catholic Home! You can step inside our front door of The Residence at 2462 to purchase a raffle ticket for a chance to win the Bountiful Harvest Basket, a handmade quilt crafted by residents and MCH volunteers, and a chance to win cash as part of our 50/50 raffle! 

Should you be able to join us in person on Tuesday, October 12th, in addition to all these fabulous items being available, you can also purchase a variety of fresh vegetables from Clare Gardens, homemade resident crafts and specialty items, participate in fun activities on the patio (pumpkin bowling, anyone?) and even take a hay ride! 

All proceeds raised at the Fall Harvest Festival benefit MCH resident programming. 

“At Milwaukee Catholic Home, we emphasize whole person wellness, and healthy eating is a significant part of that,” says Amy O’Connor, Director of A Life Engaged. “The Fall Harvest Festival is a great way for our residents and for those in our community to reap the many benefits of the Clare Gardens project. You can feel the true spirit of community that is so alive and well here at Milwaukee Catholic Home!”   

Although another summer has come and gone, there is so much to look forward to about the autumn months ahead, including Milwaukee Catholic Home’s Fall Harvest Festival. For more information on this signature event, contact Amy O’Connor at aoconnor@milwaukeecatholichome.org or visit the A Life Engaged website.
