Join Friends of Faire!

I've been coming up to Faire for many years. Three years ago I joined Friends of Faire. I have to say that this was the best move I have ever made! The people who work there (henches) do such a fabulous job of helping everyone, watching out for overheating/dehydration and just being fantastic! The name "Friends" of faire certainly has made me feel like a welcome friend at faire. Each one takes the time to greet me as I walk into the garden, and those smiles each week keep me going through the week. I regret closing weekend knowing it will be many more months before I see my Friends. ~ Kristen North
