2016 FAIR IN JEOPARDY - PRESS RELEASE
January 27, 2016
The future of the Unionville Community Fair is in jeopardy. To preserve the past and invest in the future, the Executive Board of the Unionville Community Fair is seeking their next President and Treasurer.
The Unionville area is rich with dedicated community leaders, and the Fair needs just two. Not for life; but for now (2 year term). The structure of the Fair is financially, programmatically and logistically sound; an experienced Board and many volunteers stand firm in our commitment to serve and support.
In order for the Fair to continue its unbroken record of service to the community, vigorous recruitment efforts have taken place, but the initial efforts to secure leadership commitments have been unsuccessful.
Dedicated to preserving the heritage and vision of the Fair, Board members have met with community leaders regarding saving this wonderful community tradition. The Board is now reaching out to the broader community for support. If these leadership positions remain unfilled as of February 29th, it will be necessary to cancel the 2016 Unionville Community Fair, and likely, all future Fairs.
Over the past 91 years, the Unionville Community Fair has grown from a grassroots school harvest festival to the community institution it is today. In mission, it stands on solid ground to honor our area's agricultural heritage, promote environmental education, and provide engaging family and community-centered programs.
Come stand with us to respect the heritage and assure the future of the Fair. Please be the one who gives the gift of leadership.
Any interest or questions, please contact Danielle Chamberlain at 601-299-7525. All interested Fair supporters are encouraged to attend an upcoming meeting at The Willowdale Chapel, 675 Unionville Road, Kennett Square, PA on February 17th at 7:00 pm.
