Fall Fair planning underway

The 2015 Fall Fair is happening in Port McNeill on Sept. 12-13, and planning is already under way.

Port McNeill ­— The 2015 Fall Fair is happening in Port McNeill on Sept. 12-13, and planning is already under way.

A small group of experienced fair folk have already had one informal meeting and the next meeting is today, Thursday Feb. 26.

The meeting is at 5:30 at the office of the Ministry of Forests, Lands, and Natural Resource Operations at 2217 Mine Road in Port McNeill  (there will be snacks available for those who are missing supper).

We’re looking for more volunteers (no experience required) to come out and help lend their ideas and efforts to this year’s fair.  The committee already consists of members from several communities, so you don‚Äôt have to live in Port McNeill to volunteer.  Lots of great ideas are already coming together, and there are jobs of every size to be done – you don’t have to commit for anything more than one day’s work if that’s what you have available.

The Fall Fair committee, which is also basically the same members as last year, would also like to say thank you to all the volunteers, booth renters, entertainers, and exhibitors who took part last year, and remind them that we’d love to see them back again this year in Port McNeill.

For more information, or to volunteer, please call 949-7778 or 956-4400.
