Falmouth Rotary Announces 14th Annual Crafts & Antique Fair;
Over 2,500 Expected to Attend
Old-Time Fiddle Contest Featured
The Falmouth Rotary announces that it will hold its 14th annual Crafts Fair, September 13th and 14th, at the Falmouth Marine Park “Band Shell”. Hours for the fair are 8am- 4pm both Saturday and Sunday.
“The Rotary’s Annual Crafts Fair is a family event and has become a tremendous success,” said Rotary President Rich Edes. The fair attracts over 2,500 people, over the 2 day events, who shop at over 60 vendor booths.
“With so many booths and a wide variety of products, the fair delivers a great consumer event, with vendors offering antique furnishings, hand-made and estate jewelry, as well as china and glassware. Each year we sell out our booth allotment, said the Rotary spokesman
The event will feature a judged “Old-Time Fiddle Contest” with over a dozen fiddlers competing. This year Falmouth Rotary has expanded their entertainment schedule to include a Fishing Derby for Kids, a USA Kung Fu Demo, Frank O’Rourke, a local musician, dance demonstrations by Cape Cod Dance Center and the Falmouth Dance Academy, and a Mother Goose on the Loose session with the popular Ms. Amy!
“We expect that this musical highlight will add additional sparkle to an already lively fair. Last year’s Fiddle Contest and other entertainment was a tremendous success and was well attended,” said Edes.
“The Craft Fair, in its 14th year, is now a tradition and is one of the most visible ways Falmouth Rotarians support their community,” said Edes. Proceeds from the Craft Fair help Rotary fund its’ scholarships for Falmouth students, efforts to support clean waters and Rotary’s worldwide effort to eradicate polio.
“Founded in 1927, Falmouth Rotary is very active in our community in both large and small ways,” said Edes. Besides, through our scholarships the Falmouth Rotary has helped the East Falmouth Elementary School expand its math and sciences book collection, helped expand parking at Spohr Gardens, has donated funds to VIPS(Volunteers in Public Schools), funded the sign at the Gus Canty center and the kiosk at the Town Hall.
“Falmouth Rotary efforts even made the helicopter pad at Falmouth Hospital a reality,” said Edes.
Entry is just $2.00 and offers an affordable day of fun for the entire family, he added.

RI President-elect Gary C.K. Huang chose Light Up Rotary as his theme for 2014-15. Huang was inspired by the teachings of Chinese philosopher Confucius who said: "It is better to light a single candle, than to sit and curse the darkness."
"There are so many problems in the world, so many people who need help. Many people say, 'There's nothing I can do.' So they sit there doing nothing. Meanwhile everything stays dark," Huang told the 537 district governors and their spouses and partners who are attending the 2014 International Assembly in San Diego, California.
"The Rotary way is the Confucius way. The Rotary way is to light a candle. I light one, you light one, 1.2 million Rotarians light one. Together, we light up the world," said Huang, who is a member of the Rotary Club of Taipei in Taiwan.
After announcing his theme at the opening session of the five-day training meeting, Huang urged club members toLight Up Rotary in the coming year by hosting a Rotary Day in their community and including local Rotaract and Interact members in their service projects.
"How you Light Up Rotary is up to you," Huang said. "You know where you are strong, you know what your community needs, and you know how you can help."

Every year our club picks up the trash at Menauhant Beach including the beach, lots, dunes and the back side. The amount of trash is appalling and very obviously a big problem for our community. In our Beach Cleanup photo album we have pictures of some of the items that we cleaned up and all these things are repetitive yearly items we have to clean up. It is sad to see that our community property that is owned and enjoyed by the young and old is treated in such a way. The amount of cigarette butts, plastic, paraphernalia, broken glass and other trash will shock you. We invite you to join us in our future projects and future cleanups as we try to do our small part in making the world a better place. As always Service above Self ♥
