BEHS Friends of Fine Arts
Brookfield East High School Friends of Fine Arts (FFA) is a parent-led organization committed to the support of the Fine Arts at East. We do this through our primary annual fundraiser, the Friends of Fine Arts Holiday Arts and Craft Fair, held the second Sunday of November. Hundreds of volunteers assist with this event.
All proceeds are used to support the schools' fine arts programs: band, choir, drama, orchestra, visual arts and forensics. Proceeds have purchased band instruments, bell choir, music, kiln, musical production rights, and supported
arts education and scholarships. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with interest or inquiries.
The work of the Craft Fair starts each spring. Applications are submitted and are juried for the FFA's 45th annual event and yet there is much to consider in 2021. Graduating seniors and a missed Fair year has left us with vacant parent positions, so we must prepare. Fair Meetings are held regularly in the fall until the time of the Fair.
Key positions and opportunities:
Fair Chair - working under current chair Rachel Handforth for
transition in 2022, overall coordination and timeline of fair (starts in spring)
Indoor Signs Lead - need is ensuring signs are prepared in advance of the fair, and placing them
and taking down the weekend of the fair
