**** IMPORTANT ENTRANCE INFORMATION
PLEASE REMEMBER, YOU WILL NOT HAVE TO ENTER FORT MEADE MILITARY POST TO ACCESS THE SCHOOL. The entrance to Meade Middle is off of 175 and Disney Rd/ 26th street. If you go to the Security gates on Meade, you will be turned away. Look for signs to help guide you to the correct entrance.
SET UP – FRIDAY 1830 and Saturday 0800
Set up begins at 6:30 pm (1830) on Friday, December 4th. You will have until 10:30 to finalize your set up. Doors will lock at 10:30 and will not be reopened until 8:00 am the following morning. As we stated previously, we have a large amount of vendors. Because of this concern, we will be opening at 8:00 am (0800) on Saturday morning, December 5th for those who would like to set up then. The Bazaar will open our doors to the public at 10:00 am.
You will check in and receive your vendor badge and table assignment. The space is tight, but we believe it will make for an extremely intimate experience for our shoppers. If you have any Holiday Music or ability to play music at your both, please do! We will be piping in holiday music over the PA system, but additional carols are very fun and festive!
Santa will be arriving at noon. The Garrison Commander, Colonel Foley and the Command Sergeant Major, CSM Fobes will be welcoming Santa at noon. We will have a photo op with Santa and then they will be doing their own holiday shopping. Make sure you say “hello” to them!
For our vendors only, we will be setting up a small hospitality area for you. It will have coffee, water, tea and a few prepackaged snacks. The Retired Officer Wives Club will also provide you with a coupon for a free item from their sweet shop. Its our way of saying Thank you for choosing us and working with us.
