Wilton --- Operation Adopt A Soldier (OAAS), an all-volunteer non-profit, is seeking arts and crafts vendors to staff its April 18 Arts and Crafts Fair at the group's temporary headquarters at 891 Saratoga Road (Route 9) in Wilton.
The rain-or-shine event will run from 9 a.m. to 3 a.m. that day and take place inside and outside the building that formerly housed Farrell Oil, adjacent to the Route 9/Ballard Road intersection. Vendors may begin setting up at 8 a.m.
A 12-foot-by12-foot space costs $50. Spaces will be assigned; vendors are responsible for providing a table, chairs and --- if located outside --- covering for their booths. OAAS is not responsible for vendor sales taxes; alcohol and pets are not allowed on the property.
Vendor applications and fees (checks should be made out to OAAS) are due by March 15. The cancellation policy will be stated on vendor paperwork.

OAAS mails comfort kits to U.S. military personnel serving in areas of conflict around the world. The group relies solely on donations of items and money from the public, as well as fundraisers, to fill the kits, each of which costs about $12 to mail. OAAS sent more than 1,000 kits leading up to last month's Christmas holiday to ensure they reached military personnel by Dec. 25, and has sent well over 300,000 since its 2003 founding.
