Three days until the Craft Fair....

...and just two days until set-up begins! Please come and bring your neighbors. You will find a marvelous array of artists and vendors, a raffle with 50 prizes, an activity area for children (schedule: here), and delicious food—both savory and sweet. Vendors include local restaurants and the makers of jewelry, wraps, pickles, critter art, housewares, dolls, greeting cards (from Fisk & Fern, at right), and many other items. The fair runs from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. this Saturday. However, we still need more volunteers to contribute to the fun:

Friday, April 8th
3:30 - 6:00pm: Set up. Help arrange the room and place the tables and chairs. WE NEED 4 VOLUNTEERS.

Saturday, April 9th
9am - 10:30am: Continue pre-event set-up. WE NEED 4 VOLUNTEERS.

10:00am - 1:00pm: Street teams: To draw traffic to the Fair, hand postcards to people at the Grand Army Plaza Greenmarket, along Vanderbilt Ave., and at the Botanic Gardens. WE NEED 10 VOLUNTEERS.

Last year hundreds of people came. This is a fun, social event that showcases P.S. 9 as a neighborhood school. If you haven't had a chance to volunteer for earlier P.T.O. events, the fair offers a good chance to meet fellow parents and neighbors. To volunteer, please email the organizers or call Faye at 1-917-208-1247.
