Fairyland Service Project

Our whole confirmation class will converge on Children's Fairyland at Lake Merritt in Oakland on Saturday, April 7.

Children's Fairyland is a city-owned, non-profit run park where children’s literature comes to life through whimsical storybook sets, gentle rides, friendly animals, wonder-filled puppet shows, and inspired live entertainment. We have volunteered at the park every year since 2006. We will be participating in various beautification and improvement projects throughout the park, including gardening, planting, and painting, among other things.

Please complete, sign, and turn in the Fairyland Liability form and St. Anne's Volunteer Form (permission slip); adult volunteers fill out the adult version.
