Our annual Fall Connections Fair has been moved online this year. This version of the Fair offers unique opportunities to connect with one another and with what’s going on at ERUUF – even as we’re socially distanced and committed to being healthy and safe.
Before you move on, know that none of this would be possible without a core group of leaders and staff whose collaborative brainstorming led to this wonderful reimagining of the 2020 Connections Fair: Pam DiLavore, Tom Fletcher, Denise Frizzell, Rick Hendrick, Jenny Jolly, Flynn McSherry, Julia Tyler, and Barbara Welanetz.
And an extra special bow to the imagination, skill and creativity of Michele Sager, who designed this website and has been a wonderful partner in co-creating this vision of our beloved Fair.
Most of all, each year the Connections Fair comes together only because of the ERUUF groups who join in to make it happen. It’s especially true this year as groups approached the Fair with determination and a can-do spirit — even as most initially had no idea how to create what was being asked of them. I hope you’ll join me in acknowledging them all!
So, let’s get going to the Fair! First stop is right below: How the Fair Works.
Have a good time!

How The Fair
This year’s Connections Fair is a journey in two stages.
The first leg is this website where you’ll have an opportunity to check out the various groups at ERUUF.
The second leg takes place on Sunday September 20, from 12-1:30pm. Visit our official Connections Fair Zoom Room where you’ll be able to connect with groups in their assigned Breakout Rooms to ask questions, sign up, or get more information. Think of it as “virtual tabling.”

How to use this WeBsite
Most ERUUF Groups are listed on this website. You’re invited to spend some time over the coming days checking out their videos and other information as you figure out who you’d like to visit with on Connections Fair Sunday.
Click on any of the River Stones below and you’ll be whisked off to an area that allows you to find out more about those groups. In many cases you’ll be able to watch a short video created by group members. Each group description also makes note of whether they’ll be hosting a Connections Fair Breakout Room.
Though some do not have a video or might not be participating in a Breakout Room, we’ve supplied each group’s link to ERUUF’s main website where you can find out more and get in touch should you wish.
After you’ve checked out the groups and made note of who you’d like to connect with directly, find out How Do I Get to Fair Day?
