Spring is definitely in the air with the warm weather days appearing so early and the Craig County High School football team is blooming with ideas to help fund its sports needs.
On April 1, the team will be hosting the CCHS Varsity Football Spring Fling at the high school. Crafters and vendors are invited to register for an eventful day, from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m.
Coach Jayke Dowdy shared that they have been working on this idea for a while and it seems to be coming together, just like a good football play does.
They will also have Easter-themed crafts for the younger kids, including pin the tail on the Easter bunny. Candy and small prizes will be given to the kids.
A fun photo booth will be available to take pictures in, which will have a backdrop and props. They have planned to have a “temporary” tattoo station as well.
Crafters and vendors interested in this event, can sign up on their Facebook page: Craig County Rockets Football. Upon sign up, they will be contacted with specific information about the reserved space.
The team is asking that each vendor and crafter donate one item to the team for their raffle.
People coming in will be given a ticket and they can place it in the container of the drawing of their choice from the ones donated. Extra raffle tickets will be available for purchase also.
The raffles will be drawn at the end of the day.
The football team will have concessions there as well, so those interested can bring their whole family to shop, the kids can play games and do crafts and the parents can enjoy a meal while supporting the local Rocket football team.
Booth fees are $40 for a 10-by-10 space.
If those interested cannot go online to sign up, they are welcome to contact the school.
Currently 30 crafters and vendors have signed up. “And we are adding more every day!” Coach Dowdy said.
“We truly appreciate our local crafters and vendors as we try to raise funds for our CCHS Varsity Football Program,” Dowdy shared. “We hope to have a great day for our community to enjoy as well as have a great fundraiser for our team.”
