24 hours to go....

Took today off to finalize the details - equipment deliveries are coming in, the inner campus booths will be marked off, volunteers will be cleaning the parking lot, administrative supplies will be set aside, and tonight I get to bed early.  The parking lot/check-in logistics have been refined, volunteers slotted, food vendors registered for inspection.  Now if I can just remember to eat.....

Super excited about this year, but it's a bittersweet feeling.  I've accomplished everything I wanted to do with this fair when I took it over in 2007.  It's time for the next parent to step up and continue the legacy of this great event.  Be kind, All, and take care of the next round of committee members.  Remember we're just ordinary parent volunteers, trying to do something extraordinary for our kids.

Peace, love and creativity!

Two weeks.....!!!

Ok, I'll keep it short.  At this moment, Friday, Sept. 16th, 9:30pm, only three spaces remain.  The new wooden sign goes up this weekend.  The food vendors are booked in.  We'll have student sponsored booths.  Just the volunteers remain to be rounded up and task logistics revisited.  A deposit of checks tomorrow, then we hold our breath that everything goes off without a hitch.  Weather looks like it may hold to a balmy 90°.

I'm going to miss running this gig.
