The Resource Center and Filling the Gap, Inc. will host a Feel Good Fair from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Saturday, May 4, in TRC’s Conference Center, 200 Dunham Avenue (the former Celoron school building).

The fair will feature a variety of things designed to make one feel good. For the mind, body and spirit, there will be massages, manicures, beauty products, hair feathers, chocolates and other types of food, plants and flowers (real and silk) scarves, and quilts, as well as a number of registered mediums from Lily Dale. For people who just like to shop, there will be vendors selling items such as jewelry and handmade wood crafts. There also will be a bake sale. Other vendors are expected to be present.

Because the Feel Good Fair takes place the weekend before Mother’s Day, organizers expect a lot of people to show up looking for the perfect gift for mom.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the Kathy Seastedt “Dream On” Community Support Fund, which provides critically needed assistance to individuals with disabling conditions. The fund is named in memory of Ms. Seastedt, who spent a 25-year career at The Resource Center supporting people with disabilities until she passed away in 2008.

The Dream On fund assists more than 100 people annually, providing services and supports that enable persons with disabilities to become independent, productive, participating members of society. Though it is supported by donations from TRC Foundation and private contributions, the fund receives so many requests for assistance that it does not have enough money to meet everyone’s needs. The Feel Good Fair was established to raise money for the fund.

Additional vendor spaces are available. For more information about the Feel Good Fair or to become a vendor, contact Victoria Trass Bardo, development and events manager, at 661-1477 or at vicky.bardo@resourcecenter.org.
