LEONARDTOWN, Md. – The Dr. James A. Forrest Career and Technology Center is hosting two major events on Saturday, March 24, 2018 at the school site across from the St. Mary’s County Fairgrounds in Leonardtown.  The first event is the Scrapbooking Crop, which takes place from 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. in the school’s Dorhman Room.  This event benefits the school’s SkillsUSA chapter but is being put on by the Ridge Lion’s Club. The cost for the event is $45 if you pay on or before March 18.  If you pay on or after March 19, the cost is $50.  The event includes breakfast snacks, lunch, dinner, a raffle, ½ table space, vendors and table buddies.  Please bring gently used scrapbook items, paper and stamps for the brown bag portion.  Non-perishable food items will also be collected for local food pantries.  For more information, go to

In addition to the Scrapbooking Crop, the Forrest Center’s Annual Craft/Vendor Fair is taking place from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the school’s atrium entrance area and front hallways.  Local and regional crafters and vendors will be selling a wide variety of items.  The public is invited to come out to enjoy a day of shopping.  The deadline for crafters and vendors to reserve tables is March 22.  To reserve a table or for more information, contact Bonnie Skinner at 301-475-0242, x28201 or at

Proceeds from the Craft Fair table rentals and silent auction will benefit the Forrest Center’s SkillsUSA chapter, which is among the most successful in the state.  As a result of that success, the chapter must annually fundraise over $25,000 to cover the cost of leadership training, chapter activities and regional, state & national competitions.  For more information about SkillsUSA, go to:
