Each summer, Lorain County Right to Life has an educational booth at various fairs and festivals throughout Lorain County.
For 2023, we’ll be at the North Ridgeville Corn Festival, the Lorain County Fair, and the Elyria Apple Festival!
Our booth has lots of great Pro-Life information. We have 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. This year, we are excited to again have the “Truth Booth”, a video showing the humanity of children before birth via real-time ultrasound!
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 or more of the upcoming fairs. We are now scheduling volunteers.
This year’s festival and fair dates are as follows:
- North Ridgeville Corn Festival, Aug. 11-13
- Lorain County Fair, August 20-27
- Elyria Apple Festival, September 15-17
Usually two people staff the booth for a 3 hour shift. If you haven’t done something like this before, let us know and we can pair you with someone who has booth experience.
Volunteers are strongly encouraged to visit our Fair and Festival Volunteers Orientation page. The page has some background information on Lorain County Right to Life, what to expect at the Fair Booth, and several short, but excellent training videos.
This year, with the overturning of Roe v Wade, and with the authority to regulate abortion being returned to the people and their elected representatives, it’s very important to be able to share this new landscape with visitors to our booth.
We also encourage you to become familiar with our website. We list resources there for expectant moms, and for women that have been involved with abortion. We also have lots of other educational information.
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 rewarding experience that makes a positive difference and saves lives! Please volunteer to help and please share this invitation with others. Thank you and God bless you!
