WINTER FAIRE: December 7, 2019, 12 noon to 4 pm
Thank you to everyone who contributed to and attended our 2018 Winter Faire! A special thank you to Christine Cabrera and Leslie Stair who work hard year-round to keep Crafts and Conversations crafting to make Illuminations beautiful and well stocked (and to the parents and grandmother who showed up weekly to help!). Thank you to those who donated even though they don’t have a fourth or fifth grader. Thank you to all of the teachers and class coordinators for working hard to bring their classes together to make it a successful event and a beautifully decorated campus. Thank you to Mrs. Horning for assisting with anything we needed to make it a wonderful day. I would like to give a special shout-out to Tiffanie Simpson as this is her last year as a parent at Alice Birney. She will be missed more than she knows. I have received nothing but great comments about the day. I can’t say thank you enough, Winter Faire would not be successful without the hard work and dedication from our entire community.
