Save the Date for FunFest – March 21
By Phyllis Hodges
The 2015 FunFest Committee, chaired for the third year by Susan Muise, is in full swing planning for FunFest. They set the date—MARCH 21—and the time—9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Note that the ending time is an hour earlier than last year. Registration letters have been sent to business vendors and the 150+ Community Association clubs advising them that they need to commit by February 13 to reserve a spot.
Lynn Murphy is again organizing the Health Fair which is extremely popular. She is busily contacting potential participants who wish to have displays in the Atrium Caper and Horizon rooms, as well as the vendors that will be located in the parking lot on the west side of the Atrium (VA, Eye Associates, Bloodmobile).
If you were at FunFest last year, you saw some changes in arrangement of the business and club tables in the gazebo area and relocation of the Main Tent to the south side of Cherry Hills. Susan said the committee was pleased with the improved flow so they are keeping that arrangement this year.
This is the 16th year for the SCC FunFest. The inaugural event was held in 2000 with Walt Cawein as chairman. Most of these events over the years have had a theme, but last year’s committee decided that since the overall theme is FUN, a second theme was redundant. Thus, no additional theme this year.
Thousands gather on the Community Association’s Central Campus each year to enjoy the continuous entertainment, club displays/demonstrations and food. It’s just plain FUN so plan to be there on March 21.
