The Roslyn Pet Fair is Commissioner Lori Schreiber’s creation. The fair started 13 years ago ina parking lot, but is now held on the lawn of the Church of the Living Word on Easton Road. ” The Pet Fair was born from a summer series of events to promote development and revitalization in Roslyn,” said Commissioner Schreiber-Ward 14.  “The Pet Fair was by far the most popular event that summer, and has become the heart and soul event for the summer.
