CONNECT Community Fair

 

KENNEBUNK — CONNECT with your community and 20+ local nonprofits at the fourth annual community family-fun fair featuring interactive games, activites, education and entertainment. Between 4 and 6 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 2, at the Livewell Center next to Quest, visitors will meet horses, adoptable pups, wildlife (plus your friends and neighbors), sample treats and other goodies, and learn all about these great organizations making our community better in which to stay, play and work. Visitors with stamps from each table will have a chance to win prizes.

Admission is free and open to the public. All local nonprofits are invited to participate with advance registration by Sept. 27.

CONNECT is designed to both educate and entertain. Hosted by The Kennebunk-Kennebunkport-Arundel Chamber of Commerce, Souther Maine Health Care and the Livewell Center tenants, the fair will feature the nonprofit businesses and services located within Kennebunk, Kennebunkport and Arundel. New and longtime residents can learn more about services offered "in their own backyard," and participate in hands-on activities.
