The SSTFI relies on volunteers to run the fair. This year is no exception and we would love to have you come volunteer. This year we have record project numbers (nearly 500 total projects) we have a great need for volunteers! There are many areas and times to volunteer. We cannot stress this enough – PLEASE invite friends to come help too or forward this message along!
