The “Fair Grounds” are centrally located on the lower campus near the cafeteria and adjacent buildings. The booths and exhibits will give out important educational information to help make us all better Earth Citizens.  This Celebration provides a great opportunity to share important environmental news and education with our island community.  Plan to attend and help advertise the Fair to your family, friends, church, and organizations.
