Plans are now underway for the 63rd Annual Family Fair, which raises funds for bursaries for the graduating class of Princeton Secondary School. The first Family Fair was held in 1951, put on by the PTA to raise funds for equipment for the school. It has evolved to be an annual fundraiser for bursaries for the Graduating class at Princeton Secondary School Last year we were able to award the majority of the Grad class with a $250 bursary to help further their education.
Community participation has been great in the past years and once again we are calling on the community for support with this annual event. While you are doing your spring cleaning you may find articles that you may wish to donate to the Fair. We appreciate all “garage sale” items (no clothing please), toys and puzzles, plants, books, jewellery and handicrafts – preferably in good clean condition. As well we need donations of breads, buns and baking. Articles may be dropped off at Princeton Secondary School.
The Baking Contest is a very important part of the Fair and is open to all students. All baking items will be sold at the fair with the funds going toward the bursaries. Ribbons will be awarded to first, second and third place categories.
Tickets are also being sold for the popular “Taste of Princeton” raffle. Tickets will be available from any Grad or at the Fair. The draw will be 3 p.m. April 17.
Please mark April 17 on your calendar, come to the Fair and support the Graduating Class of 2014 See you there on April 17, 2014 at 1 p.m.
