Back to School Fair is July 28


BUCYRUS —Commercial businesses may take part in the eighth Bucyrus United Methodist Church Back to School Supply Carnival and Info Fair.

Bucyrus United Methodist Church will sponsor the fair July 28 from 3 to 6 p.m. on the campus of its Outreach Center at 216 Hopley Ave.. Free basic school supplies are offered to elementary age students of financially struggling area families.

One major facet of the annual event is an Information Fair that includes representatives from dozens of area non-profit organizations and agencies. They will provide families free information about their services, along with custom games and prizes. Because of space limitations, commercial and professional businesses have previously been unable to participate.

While space is still a premium, carnival organizers are now offering commercial and professional businesses the opportunity to be involved by providing brochures, business information, discount cards, or free coupons. The items will be packaged in goody bags and distributed to families at registration.

For information, or to make arrangements to participate, contact Randy Garrett at 419-562-0392. Deadline is July 17.
