Fall (More Than) Fair

Fall Fair, CTAHR’s 27th annual fall welcome-back event, drew more than 200 students, faculty, and staff, including Dean Neal Comerford. Representatives from CTAHR’s departments and clubs vied for votes with cool demos, fun activities, and awesome giveaways, while students fiercely competed in the ice cream-eating competition. Rodolfo Ramirez, the winner of that contest, earned the Ice Cream party for FSHN. The Biological Engineering Student Association won $500 for having the “Best Table,” and the Tropical Agriculture and the Environment program won $1000 to use towards student activities for “Greatest Attendance.”

Six lucky folks won raffle prizes, and everyone enjoyed free food, as well as ice cream and frozen treats generously donated once again by Meadow Gold Dairies of Hawai‘i.

Thank-yous go to all who attended the bash, especially the outstanding contestants! Big mahalos go out to Meadow Gold for its continued support; Joannie Dobbs; the NREM department for the use of their facilities; Ray Uchida of the O‘ahu Extension Office and Lito Cacho and Richard Fisher of Pearl City Urban Garden Center for tent coverage and tables; Ryan Kurasaki for tables; co-emcees Cody Ching and Michelle Au for keeping it lively; and all the other volunteers!
