Volunteers savvy to the Community Club's many community
projects donate hundreds of hours of their time—planning,
promoting, setting up, running and cleaning up the event.
Many volunteers remember the first years of the fair,
which began in 1970, and take pride in being a part
of the proven success. It is not unusual to find twenty
year veterans among the volunteers and lasting relationships
between volunteers and artists.
The Community Club spends time, money and resources
to maintain relationships with the artists and draw
the best caliber of work and engender long term commitments
on the part of all participants. Without this considerable
investment made by the club and its volunteers on behalf
of the artists the event would not be of the quality
and the success it has been for so many years.
is truly a grassroots event; from the organization and
its happening to spending the money it generates. Volunteers
and artists are well aware of the contributions made
to the environment and the youth programs on the part
of the Club and a unison of purpose and good will has
driven its success and longevity.
