Students of Calais Elementary School and other local children enjoyed the annual Hokey Pokey Fair last Friday, a sure sign the end of school is near and summer is about to start.  In addition to various games for the children, other activities included a giant bake sale, a huge used book sale, and an enormous Chinese auction, among others.  Attendees could purchase typical fair snacks such as popcorn, cotton candy, hot dogs and more.  The fair is organized by fourth grade teacher Mrs. Brenda Batson with assistance of all of the CES staff and high school student volunteers who work to make the well-attended event successful.
