SCIENCE FAIR HELP IS NEEDED!
Cathy Stewart, Arcola Science Fair Coordinator, is looking for a volunteer to help coordinate this year's Fair.  She said the commitment is a few ( maybe three  - less than an hour each) morning meetings with herself to get the year's guidelines and the most action is Friday, November 18th from 2:00 PM until 10:00 PM and Saturday, 11/19, 07:00 AM until 5:30 PM.  All other work is at the person's leisure, but recruiting about 25 - 30 judges for Friday evening 11/18 is probably the hardest part of the job.  They do get about 10 returning each year, but the gap is always too wide as they can never have enough judges.  Cathy can be reached at cstewart@methacton.org and is happy to answer any questions at all.
