ABOB Craft Fair – Kitchen Sign Up

ABOB Craft Fair Kitchen Sign Up Here

Hello all! My name is Mike Halliday and I run the kitchen during the ABOB Craft Fair. The craft fair is the single largest fundraiser of the year. It allows ABOB to buy & repair instruments, pay for competitions, and make sure that any student that wants to take part in music has the ability to do so. My job is to make sure the crafters selling their wares are well fed and to also give shoppers a full stomach so they are happy and ready to spend those dollars! The food is prepared for us by the awesome folks at Arbor Management. All we need is your help to prepare the food, serve the food, and to act as cashiers as well.

Pick one or two shifts, or stay the whole day. Feel free to contact me on my cell at (618) 444-1407 or email me at mimal03@yahoo.com. Thank you in advance for your help and I look forward to seeing you all at the fair!
