Register online and save time at the fair.

Be sure to visit the Flute Club table and tag sale in the lobby for bargains on used music, records and CDs, and flute memorabilia. Clean out your closets and bring items you'd like to donate. All club members are welcome to sell their own CDs, music, etc. (up to 10 items) at the flute club table; bring them the day of the fair.
