Fall Fair Meeting June 10

The Port McNeill-based Fall Fair will happen on Sept. 12-13

  • Jun. 6, 2015 5:00 a.m.

The Fall Fair is happening this year in Port McNeill on Sept. 12-13.  A small group of experienced committee members has already done some organizing, and they would love to have more volunteers join them.  There are a multitude of jobs available, both big and small:  decorating, organizing exhibits, raffle prizes, sign-making, children’s activities, etc.  If you can’t volunteer for a longer term job, we’ll need a few sturdy folks to come out on Thursday evening and Friday morning (Sept. 11) to help with setting up tables, making last-minute booth changes, putting up decorations, etc. And of course we’re going to need lots of judges on the Friday night – no experience required! The committee will also be looking for groups or individuals who may wish to volunteer for less active jobs like ticket tables and taking in exhibits.  There may be opportunities for groups to raise funds by taking on a job at the fair – 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 (selling food, bake sales, games, etc.) and/or recruit new members.

The next meeting will be Wednesday, June 10 at 7 p.m. at the Port McNeill office of the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations at  2217 Mine Road.  New board members are still welcome, and yes – you can be a volunteer without being given a title on the committee. All helpers are welcome, now or closer to the fair.

Exhibit lists and booth rental forms are now available at the following locations:  libraries in Port Alice, Port Hardy and Port McNeill, the Port Hardy and Port McNeill Visitor Centres, the Hobby Nook in Port Hardy, and the Ministry of Forests Lands and Natural Resource Operations in Port McNeill.

Parents – need a project for your children for a rainy day during the summer?

Pick up an exhibit list – there are hundreds of craft ideas for children of all ages.  Don’t forget to take lots of photos over the summer as they are our fastest expanding section.

Forms should be available soon on our website: www.mountwaddingtonfallfair.ca.

Please call Christina at 250-956-4400 or Brenda at 250-949-7778 for more information.
