During this year's 41st Crop Walk on Sunday Oct. 17 there was FALL in the air and quite literally ART was fluttering in the air as it was a beautiful blustery day at Red Bank Regional High School!
We were so fortunate to have beautiful banners and posters submitted from various schools in the area. We decorated Red Bank Regional High School’s exterior walls and windows to create a visual story of our theme “High 5 to End Hunger “, as we march into our fifth decade combating hunger locally, and around the world.
Students could choose any of five areas of concern for their project: hunger, housing, clean water, climate change, and refugees and immigrants.
First Place Trophy Banner winners included: Red Bank Primary School, Rumson Country Day School, (Middle School) and Red Bank Regional High School.
Trinity Hall’s Theology classes, under the direction of Melissa Whelan, showered us with over 50 posters, one for each student. We were truly overwhelmed!
There are many teachers to thank, Rachel de Bari, Red Bank Primary School, Emily Lenz, Oak Hill Academy, and Claudia O’Connor, Red Bank Regional High School among others. Special shout out to United Methodist Church of Red Bank for their entry as well.
This will be my last year working with Red Bank CROP Hunger Walk, as my husband and I will be relocating to Houston, Texas. Will take with us happy memories of the many friends we’ve made and plan to continue the fight to end hunger in our new community.
