Bayfield students

The second graders from Bayfield Elementary School would like to thank Bob Henley for organizing our Chimney Rock Field Trip. Every year, Bob organizes volunteers to guide us through a tour of this great treasure. We would also like to thank the volunteers, Gloria Bissmeyer, Laren Trader, Dottie George and Barry Wheeless. You are all so knowledgeable about the area and so generous with your time.

Our gratitude also goes out to Peter and Inis Reardon at Chimney Rock Farms. We always enjoy getting to come to the pumpkin patch and learning about plants, seeds, and all the different things we can make out of pumpkins; and getting to pick our classroom pumpkin from the patch.

Thank you all so very much.
