Get ready for the Annual Family Fair

The annual Family Fair raises funds for bursaries for the graduating class of Princeton Secondary School.

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 into being an annual fundraiser for bursaries for each year’s Graduating class at Princeton Secondary School. Last year we were able to award the majority of students 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 might 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.

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 held at 3 p.m. on April 17, 2014.

Please mark April 17 on your calendar and come to the fair and support the graduating class of 2014.
