Jennie Mason and Amber Kendra
Jennie Mason and Amber Kendra spoke to Rotary last week about their FabulaCity Community Education program. Their mission is to bring community education back to Bay City, bringing people from diverse backgrounds together, reducing crime and delinquency, and to help people work on those issues through new activities, fun, and entertainment.

The two young women started FabulaCity based on their backgrounds, interest, and desire. They both have regular jobs and families and do this separately. They built their own web site, do their catalog and mailings, and promote the program. They also take class reservations and make schedules.

FabulaCity offers a wide variety of opportunities including classes, programs, trips and youth activities. Recent events included a Daddy Daughter Dance. Upcoming events include an Easter Egg Hunt, Dinners, and Murder Mystery parties. Trips include Tigers games, Michigan Adventure and Cedar Point trips, the Ann Arbor Art Fair and Mackinaw Island. Classes range from hobbies to hunter education.

FabulaCity is affiliated with Bay County Public School Academy, which has provided guidance and facilities. Classes may be taught there or they can be at a business or other location.

Ideas come from Amber and Jennie as well as from instructors, students, and interested parties. Anyone can with an interest in teaching a class, or anyone with an idea, can contact Jennie or Amber to see where it might go. Teachers set their own prices and split the proceeds with FabulaCity on a commission basis.
