Vendors sought for informational fair

Vendors are currently being sought for the second annual Southern Randolph County Parent Informational Fair.

The fair involves Valley Head Elementary School, George Ward Elementary School, Homestead Elementary School, Tygarts Valley Middle/High School will take place from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 7, at Tygarts Valley High School.

If you’re a vendor coming to this event, you will get more exposure for your time and participation with four schools serving over 900 students. Since it is not during the school day, we will be offering a concession stand with food and drinks, with all proceeds benefiting our Character Counts Program.

This year, we will have three inflatables in the gymnasium in order to make the event a family affair. This will allow parents to have some time to visit the vendors. This year, the vendors will be spread out more which will allow for more room between other vendors to facilitate conversations with parents and limit the distractions. There is plenty of parking.

We are asking vendors to please arrive between 4-5 p.m. to adequately get set up. We will try to provide some volunteers to assist you in carrying things in. From 5-5:30 p.m., we will open the concessions for vendors to allow time for you to get some refreshments and visit with other vendors before we begin.

Please attend this event to help parents of southern Randolph County get valuable information that can be best provided by you. For more information or to RSVP, please call Mark Allen at 304-940-6741 or email
