For many years, Greeley West’s neighbor Generations Church has held a craft fair in November for the community in Greeley.  This year, the church decided to skip the event and the Greeley West Booster Club is taking it over.

The fair will be held on Saturday, November 3. The Booster Club is in charge of organizing and gathering vendors to participate with the end goal to help raise money for athletics and activities at West.

Athletics Secretary Ms. Jessica Piacenza is the insider at West who communicates with the Booster Club and said that many vendors have already signed up to participate in the event.  So far, vendors include Christmas craft-makers, a massage therapist that is giving a five dollar massages in a chair, an Aromatherapist, and small business owners who will sell baked goods, and handmade jewelry.  There will also be a book drive for the Toys for Tots organization.  Many of the vendors have no tie to Greeley West and are just using the space to get their business name out in the community.  They pay a fee to the Booster Club, which is how the organization hopes to make money.

Some vendors will be more local to our school.  The horticulture class at Greeley West is making seasonal wreaths, Christmas ornaments, and center pieces that they will put on sale. Senior Senia Garcia is involved in the class and said, “I’m interested to see how the turn out will be, and how successful it will be for the Booster Club.”

The class will be required to attend the fundraiser for their program.

The last day to sign up to have a spot at the fair is October 26.  The fee is 30 dollars to get a 10 by 10 area, or 50 dollars for two spaces. For more information, email the Booster Club at  [email protected]
