Crofton Woods schedules Fun Fair on Saturday


May 02, 2000|By Nancy Gallant | Nancy Gallant,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

EVERY OTHER YEAR, Crofton Woods Elementary School celebrates spring with a Fun Fair. This is the year, and Saturday is the day. From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., the school grounds will be full of games, entertainment, food and laughter.

Deb Wallace and Lora Lewis are co-chairwomen of this year's event, a job that involves a lot of work over many months. But in Lewis' words, "We love it. It's exciting."

They point out that scores of parents and staff members have been busy planning, preparing and organizing events. Many of the activities are old favorites, such as face painting, snow cones, games and entertainment.

A living Candy Land game will offer children a chance to walk through their board game fantasy. The goldfish game will also be back. Lewis said she was able to find bigger goldfish this year, so parents might want to look for a place to keep their children's prizes.

New attractions are a Moon Bounce and Hula Hoop and jump-rope contests.

Many businesses have contributed prizes and financial support for the fair. KHI Construction donated a playhouse, complete with windows and vinyl siding, as the big prize for one of the games.

All proceeds from the Fun Fair will be used for PTA activities supporting the school. These have included sponsoring educational and entertainment programs, adding walls to open-classroom spaces and installing sound systems to moderate the noise level in class space.

The fair will be held rain or shine.
