"Remember When" Booth at Benewah County Fair

St. Maries Christian School in St. Maries, Idaho, had an informational fair booth at the Benewah County Fair in August. The theme for this year was "Remember When." Old-time desks and black-and-white photos were on display with other old-time memorabilia. The goal was to not only advertise the school, but to offer needed seminars to the community.

People showed interest in the seminars, with 23 signing up for the "Cooking for Kids" seminar, 19 for "Healthy Cooking" and nine for "Christian Education." One individual is interested in help with dealing with substance abuse. Overall, 105 signed up for the free drawing. The Spokane Adventist Book Center donated a leather Bible and Laymen's Ministries donated a children's video and a Clear Word Bible on CD. Many of the St. Maries church members spent hours setting up the booth and staffing it. The Junior Sabbath School class under the supervision of Sue Clark spent Sabbath morning handing out brochures.
