The 2008 Holiday Folk Fair (HFF)
was a big success. All four booths, (Exhibition, Art, Market, and Food)

out was low and the economy is clearly under depression, the vibrant
team spirit prevailed through talent and dedicated leaders and their
planning and organizing skills. 2008 HFF is now in MCCC’s record book!

the hardworking volunteers for making the Folk Fair successful. The
Chairs of Exhibition, Art, Market, and Food booths also said thanks to
all of the Co-Chairs and volunteers for their contribution.

appreciation to the entire 2008 HFF leadership team, all of the
volunteers and sponsors on behalf of MMCS and MCCC Administration. MCCC
Wishes everybody has a great holiday season - thank you (and your
