 As many people struggled to find a parking spot early at 10:00 a.m., this year’s craft show looked like a major success. Parking was extended over to the middle school parking lot, and it was only the beginning of the long day the volunteers had ahead.

There were over 150 vendors this year, about 30 more than last year, and even some of the teachers set up stands to promote any products they were trying to sell. More than 500 people walked through the door before 11:00 a.m.

 Physical Education teacher Mrs. Susie Cammauf was selling homemade centerpieces made from pine trees. She explained that it is a family run business with her parents and brother. Her job is to get pieces ready for her mother to decorate them.

English teacher Mrs.Sarah Wilkinson was selling essential oils and scrubs. She said that she made the scrubs herself for the first time, and she was excited to sell them.

The most delightful stand the craft show had was the beloved Lenard Novelty bakery. He sells cookies, brownies, cannolis, and other pastries. He was filling the cannolis right there in front of patrons if they purchased them.

 People from Student Council helped out during this event as well. This year’s Santa Claus role was played by Joey Moyer. Families were able to take pictures with and write letters to Santa.

Tim Hornbuckle and Emma Davis ran the spirit wear stand. They were selling t-shirts from previous and current events, such as homecoming, the pink-out game, and the Mini-Thon. They were also selling magnets, water bottles, key chains, and much more!

Students also ran the concession stand in the front of the building. The bestsellers in the morning were hot dogs, coffee, and donuts.

 The craft show was an event to kick off the winter gift giving season. With 30 more vendors this year, organizers had to adjust the way the auxiliary gym was set up so everyone could fit. The final numbers for the evening were 2000 in attendance and a profit of $4,800.
