Did you know?
The Shamrock is symbolic to St. Patrick's Day because many centuries ago the 3 leafed clover was used to symbolize the holy trinity for Christianity in Ireland. The shamrock often gets mixed up with the four leaf clover, which has nothing to do with St. Patrick's Day.

Spring Cleaning - Get Organized!
Congrats! You've made it through the winter, but now you're left with a messy house from staying bundled up all of the time. With the spring season finally here (Yay!), it's time to get organized. If you are anything like me, you dread the idea of having to put on your rubber gloves and whip out your scrubby brushes. Spring cleaning is a tough job. So what can you do? Well to start, prioritize by room. Go room to room in your house and make a list of what absolutely has to get done. Next, take inventory. Whether is tubs for storage, sponges, or whatever, the more time you have to search or go to the store for those items, the more time you waste not getting the job done. Making a list of these items and stocking up will help in the long run. Finally, get the job done! Put on some tunes and get to work. By the end of the day, your house will be ready for the warm months and you can focus your attention on other activities.

To be a vendor, participants must be between the ages of 5-12 years, provide their own start bank for their booth, and pre-register by March 15th by paying a vendor fee of $10. Vendors will receive one table and 2 chairs in their booth.
