April 21st will mark the 60th anniversary of the Princeton Secondary School Family Fair.  The fair raises funds for bursaries for the graduating class of Princeton Secondary School. Last year we were able to award over 25 bursaries of $230 each to help with the cost of post secondary schooling.

The community has been very supportive in the past and once again we are asking for your support for this year’s graduating class.  While you are at the fair make sure you check out the Art Show in the school bandroom. We are hoping to have a good display of artwork from students at John Allison, Vermilion Forks and Princeton Secondary School.

The baking table will be offering Mr. O’Malley’s cooking class’s tasty cinnamon buns.  These sell out fast so get there early to purchase these freshly made buns. This year along with the regular white elephant sale, books and baking, we also have a good selection of plants and some bedding plants for sale.  The ever popular games for the younger members in the family will be manned by the Class of 2011.

Tea will be served in the PSS Cafeteria, so you can plan a break from your shopping and meet friends for refreshments while being served by the 2011 Princeton Ambassadors.

Tickets are now available for the popular “Taste of Princeton” raffle which has ONE prize of several gift certificates to many of Princeton restaurants.  Tickets are available from any Grad or at the Fair.  The draw will take place at 3:00 p.m. on April 21, 2011.

We are still looking for household articles you may wish to donate.  We appreciate all “garage sale” items (no used 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 or call Pam for pick – up at 295-3321.
