The fields and valleys on the grounds surrounding Presentation of Mary Academy in Hudson overflowed with every type of vehicle imaginable as families, friends, and neighbors flocked to the fields of the school to frolic among the festival fundraising fun day activities.

For the 20th year, Presentation of Mary has hosted its Annual Fall Fun Festival in an effort to raise monies to support their ongoing educational activities.

There were inflatables for all ages to enjoy, theme basket raffles, over 250 Penny Sale items to win, petting zoo, face painting, tie-dye your own shirt or bucket hat, paint your own pumpkin, and enjoy burgers, hot dogs and sausages, with all the typical toppings.

In addition, PMA Fun Days offered the hungry fresh pulled pork and homemade apple crisp, fresh baked goodies, a sweet treat shoppe, and a super raffle with a chance to win $500.  And for those who wished to have their photo taken, a large photo booth with fun props was offered.

“The academy has a rich and long history of providing students with a values-centered Catholic education in the Presentation of Mary tradition,” stated School Principal Sister Maria Rosa.  “As administrator, I am committed to collaborating with our faculty, staff, parents, students, and community members to provide opportunities for all learners to experience both personal and educational excellence.  We know firsthand that our students’ lives are enriched by embracing the values intrinsic to our Catholic faith.

“Our core values of spiritual growth and development, personal and educational excellence, concern for human dignity, compassion and service, global vision and responsibility, and collaboration are the hallmarks of an education at Presentation of Mary Academy.  Our graduates are well-prepared to meet the challenges and expectations of high school and beyond.  As a result, a Presentation of Mary education is often a tradition spanning several generations of our current families.”
