MONTROSE, N.Y. -- Frank G. Lindsey Elementary School  in Montrose will celebrate its 60th birthday at its annual Children's Fair on Saturday, May 14 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

All alumni and former staff from the school are invited to attend and celebrate the occasion.

The fair will feature raffle baskets, carnival games, inflatables, a children's raffle, a live DJ, photo booth, bake sale and a food tent.

Wristbands for children wishing to go on the inflatables will be for sale at the door. Commemorative T-shirts will also be for sale the day of the fair.

“Alumni and former teachers and staff are invited to march in our kickoff parade,” says Donna Torrisi, principal at Frank G. Lindsey Elementary School. “We ask they attend the ribbon-cutting ceremony that opens the fair, take a tour of the school, leave a memory on their memory wall, or visit the Alumni or Ashokan tents with tables and chairs for reminiscing.”

There will be special events and student performances throughout the day, including a trivia quiz, a drone photo of all present, and an alumni contest edition of the fair's famous Cake Walk.

FGL will also be opening the keystone time capsule at the front of the school for the first time in 30 years, and adding contributions from every grade in the school, along with the essays and artwork of several student contest winners.
