Organizers of the 10th Annual Back To School Fair have authorized the Times to announce that this year’s event will be held on Saturday, August 11 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Pike County Fairgrounds.
The event, which presents each student with a free backpack of school supplies, is open to students from pre-kindergarten to seniors in high school. To be eligible, the students must be enrolled in either private, public, or parochial schools within Pike County. Students can also be homeschooled.
In addition to the backpack, students can also receive free dental, vision, and hearing screenings. There will also be volunteers there providing free hair cuts to students attending the fair.
The Back To School Fair is organized by the Pike County Community Care Partnership organization.
