"Notes for the big day"
*A big"thank you" to Nancy Doane and Sarah Everdell who will be serving lunch during the Set-up on Friday.
*Saturday morning, the gates will be open to workers at 7 AM; please park outside the gates.
*The "Fred and Prudy Coffee Cart" will be ready to roll at 8 AM with regular and decaf coffee and fresh donuts.
Thank you Dunkin Donuts once again for a discount!
*Take time to roam around and look at all the efforts our Booth Chairs and workers have put into the day. Sue Grindle will have wonderful Garden Shed offerings. Sue has been quietly gathering plants and pots and gardening books.
*A big, heavy job: Julie and Marcia collected 135 boxes of books...transporting them from the church, sorting, organizing, and even some discarding.
(Marcia says she will not be sorry to have them leave her house!)
*Mary Boyd expects to have 100 servings of her Strawberry Shortcake!
*Don't miss out on all the treasures and gift certificates- miles of walking, talking, and collecting by Milissa, Kathy, and Katie. Among other fascinating treasures is a hundred year- old "bureau on bureau."
*Please seek out the volunteers from the Hancock County SPCA who are providing helping hands, strong arms, as well as many, many donations to the fair.
*Andrew Chung and family will be a really fun part of Children's Activities. Come get your face painted!
*At Granny's Attic you will see eighteen bears all dressed up by St. Francis knitters and "fixers". Thank you, Suzanne Decrow, Elaine MacLean, Chris Ramsay, Caroline Van Cise, and Angela Yardy.
The Blue Hill Packet
will have a reporter at the fair. As always, they have been generous with pre-fair publicity. We placed 2500 flyers in The Packet.
*H.O.M.E will greatly benefit from our left-over items. They have been appreciative of the work of Ray Yardy and our Window Dressers- coming up again soon.
* Thank you to our forever- and- ever professional photographer, Joe Lendvai.
*The Sheriff's back in town! Thank you for guarding the premises, Jon Dullnig!
