Magical Literary Gala
Joan Adler
Sunday, November 18, 2018

Merry Stuhr and the planning team for this unique evening transformed HMS into a magical place, which featured our students’ creative voices. Students from all grade levels, along with families and staff, played and laughed together, while appreciating the wonder and gift of reading! The Gala was so much more than a book fair - it was an inspiring, community-building event. It was exciting to see Merry’s vision for this gathering come to life!
