Every year, St Thomas More is filled with people who come to the Fair for health screenings and health information.

Major Activity

Approximately six times a year (twice a month for three months) plus five hours on the day of the fair. 

Meeting Venue
The fair is held in the St. Thomas More School Parish Center.

Estimated Time Commitment for Volunteers
