The Southern RI 4-H Fair Committee is hosting its annual corned beef supper on Saturday March 15, 2013 at 5:00 PM at the Metcalf School, Route 3, Nooseneck Hill Road in Exeter.
The corned beef supper and auction is our major fundraising event of the year with proceeds used to fund the SRI Fair program in June. The annual dinner is one of our most popular events and includes a penny social, complete corned beef and cabbage dinner, followed by an auction featuring many items donated by local businesses, 4-H clubs, volunteers and friends.
Clubs and individuals are encouraged to donate auction or penny social items for our fundraiser. Donations can be dropped off on March 15th during the day at Metcalf or with Steve Salisbury anytime before the dinner. Popular items include gift certificates, gift baskets, crafts, household and 4-H project agricultural items. Contact Steve at 397-8663.
It takes many volunteer hours and a few dollars to run the SRI 4-H Fair every year. Please consider sponsoring SRI by placing an ad in the Fair Booklet, or by sponsoring the 2014 SRI Fair T-Shirt. Booklets will be distributed to everyone who comes to the fair, and will also be distributed at selected vendors in our area. Completed Booster Applications can be mailed to Tony Patti, 150 Camp Westwood Road, Coventry RI 02827.
