This website has been made possible by the combined efforts of dedicated individuals
of the West End Fair Board of Directors, Computer Programming Students at Monroe
Career & Technical Institute, and graphic artist Rebecca Shevrin of webshef.com.
Early in 2009 Mr. Bob Coleman decided to call schools in Monroe County to see if
he could find students to help bring the fair to the world by creating a website.
When he reached Monroe Career & Technical Institute, he found a willing group
of Technology Student Association student members looking for a Community Service
Project. This group of dedicated Computer Programming students decided it was just
the right type of project for them!
Under the guidance of teacher and advisor Mrs. Anne Shevrin-Martin, students began
analyzing the annual West End Fair Premium Book to figure out how to best represent
the wealth of information provided between its covers. Photos poured in from members
of the West End Fair Board of Directors, and information began coming in from West
End Fair Secretary Pat Schneider.
Students developed a wonderful organizational scheme and came up with a sensible
layout that makes the wealth of information about the fair easy to find and fun
to look at. Then came the challenge of artwork and design features.
Rebecca Shevrin, web designer at Advertising Specialty Institute (ASI) and head
of her own design service, webshef.com, came to the rescue with a wonderful, fun
color scheme and artwork that brings the spirit of the fair directly into the hearts
of every viewer.
Following is a list of students who have contributed since the beginning of this
John Groller, James Dekmar, Ryan Capron, Derek Delfino, Ron Weidman, Adam Rosliewicz,
Ramon Morales, Jeremy Marantino, Michael Roughan, Marissa Ziev, and Michael
Bob Coleman, Pat Schneider, and Norm Burger have been our lifeline and liason at
the West End Fair. They have contributed content, photos, proofreading, and support
every step of the way.
