Due to popularity of the event we opened a second bus

so that 28 families with over 90 people in total were able to join for the fall fun.

Here are some pictures from our visit to the Outhouse Orchards farm. Families could enjoy apple picking, hay rides, a pumpkin patch and a corn maze.

A big thank you to Nechama and Rabbi Zalman, of Chabad of Roosevelt Island, for partnering with the RI Parents' Network for this event and inviting all Island families to join! The following feedback received from one family upon return says it all:

"We enjoyed the apple picking trip very much. Thank you so much for letting us all join! Our son turned 1 this Sunday and it was a very special birthday. It was great to escape the city without a car. And we have not seen an American school bus from the inside before. That was really fun. The apples we picked up taste so good. Much better than the ones that one can buy in a shop!"

We look forward to seeing you at our next event! :)
