BELMONT — Members of the Belmont High School (BHS) chapter of Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) are busy at work preparing for their Seventh Annual Holiday Fair, to be held at BHS on Saturday, November 9 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Last year's event saw over 100 vendors throughout the school's gym, cafeteria, and band room. Approximately 2,000 shoppers were in attendance, and students are hopeful that this year's fair will continue to raise expectations.
Students who have helped plan, organize, market, and execute the fair for multiple years are excited to be part of it again. Sydney McKim, a senior at Belmont and a two-year member of FBLA, has seen the Holiday Fair grow into the huge event it is now. "Helping out with the fair really is my favorite part of being in FBLA. I don't think that I am alone in this feeling either; many of us feel a great sense of accomplishment by being able to provide a community event that is so well-received and simultaneously be able to give back. The Holiday Fair also allows us to develop skills necessary to be proficient in business, from marketing and planning, to communicating with people." FBLA will again be donating a portion of the proceeds of the fair to the LNH Children's Auction and collecting donations for the Mix 94.1 Cash N Cans Drive.
During the fair, the BHS PTO will be hosting Santa's Secret Shopping Experience where children and students will be able to do secret holiday shopping for special gifts for family members and friends. Children will leave with wrapped gifts, and be overjoyed during the holidays to watch their loved ones unwrap special surprises.
