Fair has been held in South Windsor every year of its existence. Throughout
those years the town and community have supported the fair in numerous
ways, from helping with setting up the grounds for the fair to reserving
the fairgrounds. Help has come from many departments and organizations
in town including the Police Department, Fire Department, Ambulance
Corp, Parks & Recreation Dept, Public Works and Planning & Zoning.
Community Capital Improvement Projects
be the 7th year the South Windsor Jaycees are coordinating the Wapping
Fair and are pleased by the overall success of the fair. In fact, a
portion of the proceeds from the past 4 years has been earmarked towards
the community. Donations have been made to My Friends Place ($3,000
towards playground), Town of South Windsor ($3,000 to purchase defibrillator),
Family Awareness Day ($350 sponsorship), $1,000 for the 2nd level ropes
course, $1,000 to the South Windsor Fire Department for modernizing
training equipment, $2,500 to the South Windsor Police Department to
help fund a new police dog and $200 towards sponsoring a youth basketball
team. In addition, the Jaycees are committed to continuously showing
their thanks to the community by allocating up to 50% of the fair proceeds
toward local community projects.
of Jaycee Projects
Fair is the sole fundraiser for the South Windsor Jaycees. The proceeds
that go back to the chapter are used to cover their administrative expenses,
recognize and reward members for their efforts and most importantly
fund more than 25 community projects conducted throughout the year.
Some of our more recognizable events include: Breakfast W/Bunny, Pet
Food Drive, Thanksgiving Baskets, Winter Clothing Drives, Adopt-A-Road,
Pepsi, Pitch, Hit & Run, Family Awareness Day, Santa Letters, Breakfast
with Santa, Heritage Day and Adopt-A-Family. All of these and more are
conducted annually to benefit people in the community at no cost to
the attendees. Every last expense is funded thanks to the success of
the Wapping Fair. To learn more about the Jaycees please contact Casey
