Time Needed:  
Approx. 2 hours a month starting in January.  
From January to April, we typically have 1 meeting per month (1 hour)
It all depends on your duties and the amount of effort you want to put in to it.  
For example, if you are responsible for crafts, you can order from Oriental trading…or you can research different hand made/more creative crafts.
For the month of May…it will be a little hectic.  
Day of the Fair:  Must be available Friday for set up and the entire day of the fair…from morning set up to evening clean up.

Helpful Tools: The Spring Fair committee recruits assistance from other committee; please lend a helpful hand throughout the year.  At the end of the year parents are very tired…and it will come in handy to call on those you helped out!!!

Benefits: Providing a fun filled event for the Tashua Community. Raising a large amount of money to fund Tashua School’s extra needs

Lifespan of committee: For the month of May you will feel overwhelmed….but it’s worth it the day of the fair when you see all the parents and children having a great time!!!!
