The school serves as our primary public meeting venue. The logistics provided by the school’s staff is unsurpassed.
It is an honor for NCVV to conduct outreach at the school’s annual fair.
I will be anxious to learn what the attendance was for this year’s event, which was held June 4th. All of our board members who participated in manning our booth, along with making and serving popcorn, were taken by surprise at the turnout.
It was nearly impossible to keep more than a few bags of popcorn in reserve. More often than not, people had to wait until a fresh batch was prepared. Unlike prior years, there was no time for a break.
As anyone knows, there is a strong correlation between popcorn consumption and attendance at events like these. While economists may disagree about the meaning of the latest uptick in unemployment, or argue over the effect of federal debt ceiling level on long-term government bond yields, there is unanimity in interpreting the popcorn index.
Saturday’s traffic at the Colfax Fair indicates a need to increase the capacity of popcorn production at next year’s event. That could have a ripple effect on the local economy. It will also have to be considered in NCVV’s staffing model for its booth. Regardless, Board Members cannot expect any executive bonuses for a continuation of growing sales, due to a 10% cut in our budget.
The Parents Association of Colfax Elementary, the parents and organizers outdid themselves as never before.
Colfax is an outstanding example of academic achievement and campus life. When parents, staff and neighbors cooperate, as they do at Colfax, almost any school can excel.
