The KPCCA hosts the 14th annual Key Peninsula Livable Community Fair from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on May 9, with the theme of “Living Well on the Key Peninsula.”

The event provides the community with a unique opportunity to learn about 40 nonprofits and resources on the Key Peninsula in a fun, family-friendly atmosphere, thanks to volunteers, sponsors, local organizations and youth.

Two Waters Arts Alliance will host a kids’ craft table, and schoolchildren and musicians will entertain attendees. Emergency preparedness remains a focal point with both vendors and workshops.

According to organizers, the civic center association has partnered with CHI Franciscan Health’s Peninsula Violence Prevention Coalition, will host a “Healthy Choices Expo” in conjunction with the fair. The expo will offer additional activities and workshops for youth and families.

The Key Peninsula “Summer Camp” fair also will return with information from regional recreational organizations.

The Lakebay Fuchsia Society will host its 20th annual plant sale outside. The Washington State University Master Gardeners will be on hand to answer plant questions. Concessions will serve breakfast and lunch items all day.

The “Community Spotlight” also will return to showcase a local business or organization, artist and/or person of special merit to the Key Peninsula.
