Princeton’s 61st annual Family Fair in the works

Help fund bursaries for the graduating class of Princeton Secondary School.

Plans are now underway for the 61st annual Family Fair on April 26.

The event 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 each year’s graduating class.

Last year we were able to award over 27 students with a $300 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 used clothing please), toys, puzzles, plants, books, jewelry and handicrafts – preferably in good, clean condition.

We also need donations of bread, buns and baking. Articles may be dropped off at Princeton Secondary School or call Tracey for pick up at 295-7215

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 26.
