Chair & Shadow Information

Each year we are in search of parents to shadow and chair the various booths at the Fair

A Booth Chair oversees the planning, setup, operations and breakdown of the booth they are in charge of. A Booth Shadow works under the Booth Chair and assists and observes the Chair throughout the year in order to take on the role the following year.

This year we begin a new booth assignment process with our Junior class taking the reins of the Fair! Along with the Malasada Booth the junior class will also chair our game booths and Gourmet Drinks & Desserts. Sophomores will shadow. Note that the manpower for each shift will be assigned to the other grade levels. The remaining booths will be chaired and shadowed by the other grade levels.
