Kanapaha Spring Festival will be held in March 2007. Please come to the February meeting prepared to commit to one or two hours of tending our booth. This is an excellent opportunity for us to reach the public. You will find it enjoyable to be a part of the activities and since you will working with another member, one of you can take the opportunity to wander around and see the various displays and activities. You will be given a pass to get in free, saving you a couple of bucks per person. Please pencil those dates on your calendar and plan to give us a hand. No special skills are needed. We will have handouts and displays for people to see and you can refer any questions to members of the board who have more experience in case someone is really interested and you don't feel comfortable handling the questions.
