Fall Fair committee slates meeting

The 2014 Mount Waddington Regional Fall Fair committee is putting out the call for volunteers and vendors.

PORT HARDY—The 2014 Mount Waddington Regional Fall Fair is officially happening this year in Port Hardy on September 6-7, and the fair committee is putting out the call for volunteers and vendors.

A preliminary organizational meeting is scheduled for next Monday, May 5, at the home of Malcolm and Brenda Fleeton in Port Hardy. At that time, a theme will be selected for the fall fair, a slate of directors will be formed and more.

“And yes — you can be a volunteer without being given a title on the committee,” Brenda Fleeton said. “All helpers are welcome, now or closer to the fair.”

There are a multitude of jobs available, both big and small: the organizational committee will need volunteer to help with entertainment, decorating, booth rentals, organizing exhibits, raffle prizes, sign-making, children’s activities, organizing a Coffee House, among other tasks.

The committee will also be looking for groups who may wish to volunteer for covering admission tables, raffle and information desks, and other duties. There may be opportunities for groups to raise funds without actually setting up a booth; please contact the committee for suggestions.

Businesses and organizations can start planning their booths, and non-profit groups can start working on how to use a fair booth to raise funds and recruit new members.

For more information on Monday’s meeting, please call 250-949-7778.
