Good Morning Western Fairs Association Member,

Today we celebrate National Gardening Day! If you have run out of projects to work on while at home, maybe make your way outside to work on that garden that you have always wanted to start or give the one that you already have some love! If gardening is not your thing don't worry there is still other things to celebrate today: National Dolphin Day and Look Up at the Sky Day! So today in between calling members of your fair family go outside soak up the sun and watch a few YouTube videos about Dolphins. 

As a reminder, we are still looking for the best #WFAheretohelp photos! Tag us on social media and #WFAheretohelp! Thank you to all that have already participated! 

Sending our love and support,

Western Fairs Association Team
