First Day of Fall: Saturday, September 22, 2018

By Rachael Savoie, Human Resources

For me, fall to me is the most wonderful time of the year. I love everything about fall, from the trees changing beautiful colors, to the holidays we celebrate like Halloween and Thanksgiving. One thing I can’t wait to do is take my family to the local cider mill. We love getting warm homemade doughnuts and cider; and picking out our pumpkins to carve for Halloween.

Saturday, September 22, 2018 marks the first day of fall in the Northern Hemisphere. It’s when the sun crosses the earth’s equator from north to south. This is what causes the amount of daylight to become shorter and the temperatures to become cooler.

Here are a few things you can do to make this season the most wonderful time of year:

• Go for a nature walk, collect colorful leaves, go apple picking;
• Check out a local high school or college football game;
• Go for a hayride;
• Get lost in a corn maze; or
• Wander through a pumpkin patch.

What is your favorite way to enjoy this time of year?
