For students who wanted to get more involved in school activities, The Unity and Club Recruitment Fair allowed them an opportunity to learn about and join the many clubs Logan has to offer.
About three days prior to the event, announcements were made promoting the Thursday lunch time attraction planned by the Humanitarian Assistance Club and faculty. However, it left students confused becuase every year Logan has two separate events, one for the unity fair and another for club recruitment.
Traditionally, the Unity Fair mostly comprises of different ethnic clubs performing or selling food pertaining to the focus of the club. Because of this, it was hard to conceive the fact that the club recruitment was going at the same time and not prior to the Unity fair.
Come Thursday people were still unsure of what to expect from this event. About 15 booths were set up on the big green to promote and encourage people to join the variety of different clubs at Logan. Each booth also sold snacks or food with all proceeds going toward their individual club.
One of the clubs included in the fair was the Youth Alive Club, Jenny Day, a senior and a member of the club, described the club as, " a club for Christian students at Logan who have love for the school and want to do positive and influential things around the school."
All the booths were circled around a stage that featured different student acts including singing, poetry, and break dancing. Everyone who wanted to perform had to audition prior to the event.
Maureen Diamante, a senior, who performed at the event said, "The process was kind of rushed and we didn't even know what we were supposed to do and when until they told us. However, performing was fun and it was great seeing everybody come together."
Although the planning of Unity and Club Recruitment Day seemed last minute, rushed, and poorly advertised; the event was still able to draw in a big crowd of students, help the clubs fundraise and gain new members.
