September 19, 2015

Harry was the kind of kid who would, and did, save his allowance to buy shoes for a less-fortunate friend. As a way to honor who Harry was, Harry Fest was started to raise funds for local causes. Since 2005, Harry Fest has raised over $150,000 for causes in the local community. The benefactors of 2015 Harry Fest were: First Day Shoes, Wes Leonard's Heart Team, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Plainwell and Otsego Scholarships.
