ALUMNI EVENTS AT THE 2017 COUNTRY FAIR!
Calling ALL St. Mary’s Alumni:
Greetings from St. Mary’s School! We would like to invite you to join us for our inaugural Alumni Weekend during the St. Mary’s Country Fair! This year, we are focusing on bringing alumni together for a weekend of fun and community – reflective of our days on campus. St Mary’s continues to be the same great institution educating students in a close-knit Catholic community. As a St. Mary’s graduate, you know that your Catholic elementary school years provided you with the foundation needed for you to become the person you are today. Dedication to striving for your best self, exhibiting kindness, compassion and respect, working collaboratively toward a common goal; these are all life skills that were formed during your St. Mary’s experience. We would love for you to come back to your roots this fall!

Looking to help?
Consider a Sponsorship in the Fair Program – New this year will be feature pages honoring the commitment and dedication of Sister Nicki, Sister Betty and Ms. Lynott! Be sure to be included one or more of these pages for only $100 per page. Please contact Nicole Lamano (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information. Checks can be made out to St. Mary’s Country Fair and be sure to include the name of the sponsorship page you would like to contribute to and your year of graduation. Make your payment on-line stmaryslg.org/alumni-dedication-sponsorship or payments can be dropped off in the office at school or mailed to:

Another option for sponsorship is a personal donation ranging from "Friends of the Fair" ($100) to “Alpha” ($10,000) and anywhere in between. Highlighting your family or business will help us underwrite the Fair expense and insure that we have the funding we need to deliver a fun-filled weekend for all. Please see attached page for specifics on this type of sponsorship.
Pick your favorite booth and work a shift – See the Scheduling tab to schedule to work a shift!
There are many ways to support the Fair! Volunteer for a committee, sign up to work a shift during the Fair weekend, donate a raffle item or sponsor a booth, an event or a dedication page. Whatever suits your schedule best, we’d love to have the opportunity to see you there!
Looking forward to seeing you!
