Probably the biggest project of the semester was Amherst Fair. Under the chairmanship of Mike Meninger, Mark "Toy" Morse, and Freaky Bill Simpson., Amherst Fair was a very successful project. In spite of some rain on the second day we were able to raise a reasonable amount of money for charity from our dart board and handicrafts booth. Our activities included organizing the fair, setting up and taking down the tents, running the dart board and handicrafts booth, judging the pet parade, and cleaning up afterwards. The following pictures illustrate the various activities of Amherst Fair.
