Homecoming Gala

The Larkin Cottage Homecoming Gala is a fundraiser to support the rebuilding of the Catherine Larkin Memorial Practice Cottage on the Essex North Shore Agricultural & Technical School campus. Students are involved in every aspect of the design and build process. All funds for the Larkin Cottage will be raised through private donations. The newly renovated cottage will include an agricultural museum, learning center, and community function space.

The Gala will feature live music, both a silent and live auction, passed hors d’oeuvres, a cash bar, a plated dinner, and much more all under the tent on the beautiful Essex North Shore Agricultural & Technical School front lawn.  

We will also be presenting a Larkin Lifetime Achievement Award to a member of the community who has demonstrated great success in the local agricultural industry.
