Park City Newcomers is providing an opportunity for members of the community to learn about local nonprofits this Wednesday.

Carol Levine with the Park City Newcomers Club explains why the non-profit fair is returning.

“The newcomers did this fair three years ago, so we felt that it was time to do another one. It’s a very interesting process because Park City has so many non-profits that it’s difficult to choose. We tried to get newer ones that have not been out there but then we also took the old Christian Center, Peace House and all that.”
