2017 Downriver Indie Craft Fair Committee
In March we hold our annual Indie Craft Fair inside the building. Coordinating all the vendors, music and food is a lot of work. We could use a committee to help with the planning, organizing and logistics leading up to and the day of the fair. Please email us with the subject 2017 Indie Craft Fair Committee if you would like to help. We need you to be able to utilize facebook groups to communicate and attend some meetings at our facility. Meetings can be held in the evenings and weekends if that is convenient.
