Student Craft Fair: In conjunction with the Spaghetti dinner there will be a student craft fair. Students may sign up in the office to sell handmade items (no food) from 5-7pm, Friday, February 22nd during the Spaghetti dinner DDD kick-off event. Because all available tables will be used for dinner seating, students will need to bring their own table.
