Dear Vendors and Patrons of the Senior Citizens Fair,
We regret we must inform you of our decision to discontinue the Senior Citizens Fair.
For the last 52 years, the purpose of the Fair has always been to provide an outlet for senior citizens to sell their arts and crafts. As you are aware, over the past few years it has become increasingly difficult to sustain the fair due to greatly rising cost of presenting the fair and added costs in other areas. We have experienced declining participation of volunteers, shoppers and even Vendors due in part to the cost of parking fees..
We are pleased that in the past 52 years, we have been able to return 8.5 million dollars in sales to seniors participating in the fair.
Members of Altrusa International Inc. of Fort Worth and Co-Sponsors, Tarrant County Medical Society Alliance and Newcomers Club of Fort Worth greatly appreciate your participation in the Fair over the years as Vendors, Volunteers and Shoppers.
It has been an honor and our pleasure to sponsor the Fair for 52 years and we wish you all continued good health and good luck.
Claire Wallace, 2013 SCF President
and Members of Altrusa International Inc. of Fort Worth
