MONMOUTH — Friends of Cumston Public Library will welcome spring at the 33rd annual May Faire from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, May 19, on the lawns, porches, Caucus Room, Reception Room and front parking lots of Cumston Hall on Main Street.

Homegrown perennials from local gardens will be featured along with flowering annuals from Gingerbread Farms in Wayne and vegetables from the Henry L. Cottrell School children’s garden.

Monmouth Museum will sell collectibles and oddities, both new and old. FOCL’s lobster rolls will be sold under the archway, with a seating area provided. The Junior Fire Department will offer hamburgers and hot dogs.

The United Church’s bake table will offer homemade goodies, and books will be available in the Lower Level and outside on the porch. Vendors’ stalls will sell crafts, embroidery, weaving, books, fabric, jewelry and doll clothes.

Activities will include making masks and noisemakers at 11 a.m. These will be used for a parking lot parade scheduled for 11:30. Additional activities during the day will include simple wand-making for May Fairies, gnomes and other sprites, as well as chalk art and face-painting.

Volunteers are needed and encouraged. Contact LaVerne Winn at 207-933-4760.

All proceeds support programs and projects of Cumston Public Library.
