Here are some ideas 
of what can be done now:

Make items for the Fancy Booth - crochet, knit, carve, paint, holiday ornaments, etc.
Design a theme basket for the Arts and Crafts Booth.  Pick a theme - Sports, Stamping, Christmas, etc. - and fill the basket with related items.
Start collecting (searching) for donations of “mystery gifts” for people of all ages for the Parcel Post Booth.  Useable items for the booth are needed.
Think of where you would like to volunteer your time to work.
