The booth has the fetal models on display, along with numerous pieces of educational literature. There are also Precious Feet pins, bumper stickers, and other items for sale. The fair booth really does make a difference to the people who pass by. Moms and dads with young children often stop by the booth to show the fetal models to their children in order to show how big their “little brother or sister is inside Mommy’s tummy” or to share “this is how big Aunt Mary’s baby is” and so on. Children, in their innocence, are in awe of preborn children.
Sometimes expectant moms who aren’t as thrilled with their pregnancy stop by the booth and have their eyes opened to the precious little one they are carrying. Most people who stop by the booth are interested in the Pro-Life message.
From time to time someone stops by who doesn’t understand why we’re Pro-Life, but prayer and the Holy Spirit will usually provide a way to help them.
We ask you to prayerfully consider volunteering your time this summer to help staff the Lorain County Right to Life booth at one of the upcoming fairs. Volunteers schedules are being set up.
This year’s festival and fair dates are as follows:
- North Ridgeville Corn Festival, Aug. 10-12
- Lorain County Fair, August 20-26
- Elyria Apple Festival, September 21-23
Usually two people staff the booth for a 3 hour shift. If you’ve not done something like this before, you can be paired with someone with booth experience.
Many helpers are needed to make sure the Right to Life fair booth is staffed throughout multiple fairs. This is a great opportunity to meet other Pro-Life people, and to spread the Pro-Life message that each person is a precious creation of God that deserves our love and respect.
Helping with the Right to Life booth is a very rewarding experience that makes a positive difference in people’s lives. Please volunteer to help and please share this invitation with others.
