BELMONT — Members of the Belmont High School (BHS) chapter of Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) are busy at work preparing for their 8th Annual Holiday Fair, to be held at BHS on Saturday, November 8 from 9 am to 3 pm.
Over 100 crafters and vendors will fill the high school's gymnasium, cafeteria, and band room, offering a wide variety of hand-made and holiday gift items. The FBLA students will be hosting a large raffle as well, including hand-made items from vendors, as well as donations from local businesses.
A wide variety of breakfast, lunch, and snack items will also be offered by members of FBLA, the French Club, and the Booster Club. Approximately 2,000 shoppers were in attendance at last year's fair, and students are hopeful that this year's fair will be a record breaker.
Senior Alex Lugar is excited to participate in her third holiday fair. "This fair is really cool for us! We do a lot to prepare, so it is fun to see all of the vendors get set up and to hear that they are enjoying the fair. Interacting with the vendors and community members who support us is a great experience."
Once again this year, the BHS PTO will be hosting a Santa's Village shopping experience for children, where they can purchase and wrap gifts for parents and friends. The kids will be super-excited when mom and dad are opening their special surprises during the holidays. Santa will also be on hand this year for photos with children.
Part of the mission of the FBLA chapter at Belmont High School is to give back to their community, so the students will be collecting canned goods for the Mix 94.1 Cash and Cans Drive. St. Joseph's Food Pantry in Belmont is a beneficiary of this great local program. Fred Caruso will also be on hand from 9 am-1 pm selling Cash and Cans calendars.
FBLA President Colton Cadarette believes that giving back is one of the nicest benefits of the holiday fair, and he enjoys working with the local radio stations on this goal. "Fred Caruso and Pat Kelly have been so supportive of us in my four years doing the holiday fair. They always make time for us to come to the radio stations and record interviews with us, which is a cool experience, so we enjoy supporting their causes as well."
In addition to the Cash and Cans Drive, proceeds from the fair will be used to support other local charities during the holidays, including the LNH Children's Auction. Proceeds also help FBLA students to attend NH-FBLA leadership conferences and competitions.
