What is the Fair Havens Season Site Committee?
The Fair Havens Season Site Committee is made up of a small group of people who reside on Fair Havens Season Sites. Our goal is to help provide entertaining activities, facilitate fund raising events, and generally assist in communication and relations between the Season Siters and Fair Havens Ministries.
This year we are implementing new ways to assist Season Siters including:
- Trailer Rental list
- Tool "Library"
- Season Siter's Marketplace
- Better Communication
For 2023, the Season Site Committee consists of the following people:
Lorne Atkins (Chair)
David Lewis (Treasurer)
Phil Medler (Vice-Chair)
Sarah Saif (Secretary)
Lorne Atkins (Chair, Administration)
Laurie Atkins (Stockroom Manager, POS)
Dave & Dorothy Lewis (Live Auction Managers)
Frank & Laura Crampton (Silent Auction Managers)
Jean Ostrander (Donations Manager)
Ted & Corrie Bootsma
The committee works hard to find creative ways to raise money for the projects that arise each year. This helps to keep our site fees from experiencing major increases.
Some of our fund raising events have included the:
Annual Fair Havens Auction
Bazaar (2016 Anniversary Fair)
Carnival Lollypop Tree
