They sponsor the opening ceremonies at the Fairfax Fair and the baby show, and provide meals, gifts and expenses for the queen contests.
New officers to be installed at the June meeting are: Marilyn Alldredge, president; Lea Anne Miller, vice-president; Anita Sutter, secretary; Sandy Fisher, treasurer; and Krys Carlock, sunshine.
