Senator Square: Craft fair promises to be best yet
Carson High School’s 20th annual Holiday Craft Fair is 5-8 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday. It will be the best one yet with lots of new vendors as well as all your favorites. Come spend some time — great food, entertainment, a raffle, Santa, book sale, and of course, amazing and unique gifts for everyone.
Admission for adults on Friday evening is only $2 and includes a raffle ticket as well as re-entry on Saturday.
Saturday’s admission price is $1.50 or only $1 with a canned food donated for FISH.
As always, children and K-12 students are free. All proceeds go to benefit CHS student groups — last year’s craft fair provided stipends for more than 20 clubs as well as 10 senior scholarships of $500 each.
Support your school and community by attending this year’s craft fair.
Future Business Leaders of America thanks Bryton Lewis, a Carson High School graduate, for stopping by the monthly meeting to share his experiences in the business world and the importance of networking.
In other FBLA news, the club is currently holding two fundraisers. Coffee sales will continue as well as a raffle for a $100 cash card and Thanksgiving food basket.
Raffle tickets are $1 each. The drawing will be on Saturday at the craft fair.
Contact a FBLA member to purchase tickets or coffee. You can also contact adviser Mrs. Golik at 283-1737 for more information. All funds raised will be used to send students to state and national FBLA competitions in the spring.
All FBLA members currently competing in the Stock Market Game need to meet on Wednesday in Mr. McHenry’s room. All FBLA members interested in competing at state need to meet on Tuesday in Mrs. Golik’s room.
The CHS Volleyball team would like to thank its fans for all of the support this season. We have the greatest fans, parents, players and contributors. A special thank you goes to Dick Campagni Capital Ford for their support.
Key Club members volunteered time at the Salvation Army this weekend helping stuff boxes for families so they can celebrate a bountiful Thanksgiving. It was a rewarding experience and our members learned the value of volunteering. We will have several other similar events as the holidays are upon us.
