SAS County Fair

On Saturday, SAS held their annual County Fair.  It's like the schools' fundraiser for the  year but all of the money goes to an organization called Caring for Cambodia.  SAS and the expat community here in Singapore are so great about always donating time, money, and supplies to charity organizations and it really makes you feel good to be a part of it all.

Each class at SAS makes a project to put up for sale or auction at the fair.  I helped in Evan's class.  We made a set of greeting cards with images from Chinatown at Chinese New Year.  When the kids went there on their field trip, I took photos and the students told me what their favorite things were.  Then I made those into cards.  Ryan's class did an art project based on things from the island.  He painted a flower for his piece.  
At the fair they have all kinds of things going on.  There's food, games, activities, a book sale, a bake sale, vendors, and the auctions.  We went over to the fair and had a nice time.  Colin and I volunteered to run the bull ride for an hour.  It was HOT.  But we all enjoyed it.  After our shift at the bull, we each bought a book from the used book sale.  I can't wait to hear how much money was raised that day.  I know it's got to be a huge number, and what a great cause! And both boys are also reading in their classes to raise money for charities too.
