Fall Weekend at Honeoye Falls-Lima was filled with sunshine and lots of smiles, on and off the playing fields.

A highlight of the Fall Weekend was the parade on September 24. The theme of Fall Weekend floats was Movie Genres. Led by the New York State Police and the American Legion Post #664, the first responders from Lima Ambulance were recognized along with the Masonic Lodge. The members of the HF-L Board of Education followed them.

The Alumni Hall of Fame inductees were next in line with Wally Anderson’s brother representing Mr. Anderson. Then came Karen Krupp Tremer, Deborah Gonyea Smith, Dana Lougher Doyle and Mike Battle. The first floats of the parade were by Mendon Child Care, which represented the Adventure films, and Great Expectations with children’s films. Then it was Mendon Public Library and local Girl Scout troop members as well as youth football players, youth cheerleaders and youth wrestlers and HF-L teachers.
