Fair is Fair

Written by Susan Frost/Music and Lyrics by James Holmes

The Fair is coming to town and it’s bigger and better than ever before! But wait, is it? There’s something new (it’s bigger) but no one will give it a chance. Some kids just want to ride the roller coaster (it’s better) and others want to visit the pigs and cows. Some will pass up everything for sticky sweet cotton candy! Until finally, one girl discovers what is biggest and best and convinces the rest. But not before rumors fly, officers go undercover, and the whole fair is terrorized. Join us for this year’s musical comedy, “Fair is Fair”.

Have you ever wished you knew how to crochet? Love the look of all those cute hats and scarves you keep seeing at local craft fairs? Want to experience the stress relief and positive feelings associated with making something of your very own? Then join us for a fun class where you will learn the Basics of Crochet. We will learn how to hold the crochet hook and yarn, how to do a beginning chain, and 3 simple stitches – single crochet, double crochet and a combination of each to create an interesting pattern. At the end of the class students will have created a small rectangle of crocheted fabric which they can use to create a simple drawstring bag. Alternatively students may choose to use the sample as the first swatch for an afghan or scarf. Once the beginning stitches are learned the possibilities are endless!!!! Crochet hooks and appropriate yarn will be available for a fee of $8.00 to be collected at the first class or bring your own. No experience necessary. Class size is limited to 6 participants. There are multiple instructors, so you are sure to get lots of individual instruction and have success learning this new skill!
