Thank you to those that have already signed up to demonstrate in our fair booth. We still need many volunteers to fill all the days at the fair. Currently all Sundays have no volunteers also 2 Saturdays are open. Please check out the calendar at your next chapter meeting to sign up or contact your chapter calendar coordinator. Up to 3 demonstrators can sign up per day.  Please consult your calendars and plan to sign up at the next meeting.
