    Hello I am Mary Foran student of Rockville High School in Vernon. I am currently working on a community service project collecting donations for a no kill dog shelter known as Sarah’s Second Chance in Vernon. I was wondering if I could set up a small table and a donation box at the Family Fun Day Event. I would very much appreciate your support, and I apologise for the short notice and I hope you can get back to me soon.

    Thank You and enjoy your Memorial Day weekend.

      Hi Mary,
      sorry for not seeing your post til this morning. If you wish to set up a table at the fair for Sarah’s Second Chance that would be fine. Due to the inclement weather, we will be moving indoors to the school. Community groups will be located in the main corridor of Bolton Center School. We start set up around 9:30 am and the event is from 11 am to 2 pm. We provide lunch to the vendors and volunteers free of charge. Parking is in front of the school and enter building thru the main doors. The address is BCS 104 Notch Road in Bolton. Hope to see you there.
