To honor the source of life, it's time we give Blair's fountains their due respect. In that reverent spirit, please join me as we take a splash into the varied and often quirky sips and drips of Blair.

The Performing Arts Club was founded by a mutual love of theatre and the extensive effort of seniors Isaac Jiffar, Alex Michell and junior Patty Pablo.
