Here are some ideas of what can be done now:

Start collecting (searching) for donations of “mystery gifts” for people of all ages for the Parcel Post Booth.  Useable items for this booth are needed.
Design a theme basket for the Arts and Crafts Booth.  Pick a theme and fill a basket with items relating to your theme.
Think of where you want to volunteer to work.  We need and would like lots of volunteers.
