Junior Committee member duties will include providing outreach in the communities and schools as well as providing assistance in preparation, setup, and during Fair activities. Activities will be held in the months leading up to and during the Fair.Students must be or become a Fair member, commit to attending membership meetings, and work the required shifts to be eligible for this very special program.
