Carroll Catholic hosts annual fall festival

[October 11, 2011]  The yard at Carroll Catholic School was full of kids and adults on Sunday afternoon during the annual fall festival -- people playing laser tag and jumping through the inflatables, enjoying cotton candy and snow cones as if summer wouldn't end. 

But that wasn't all the action. The gym was the scene for a giant inflatable, face painting, balloon animals, penny pitch, a 50-50 drawing, a cake walk, silent auction of gift baskets and assorted games designed to test the player's skill or Lady Luck. Players could earn a handful of tickets redeemable for prizes like pencils, small toys and fun gadgets; or 100 for a soda with lunch, or the privilege of having one's own casual day at school.

Jerry and Colleen Roate co-chaired the event, and volunteers made everything come together. Sponsors for the inflatables were Daisy's Nail Salon, Leslie and Rich Singleton, Greg and Peggy Morrow, and Scott and Jenny Singleton. Teachers Mrs. Sikes and Ms. Faith were the good sports who got drenched time and again as students learned to hit the target at the dunk tank.

Festival admission was $10 per person. In return, each person was given a bracelet to wear as proof of admission. Games and inflatables were free to anyone with a bracelet. The snow cone and cotton candy stand was hosted by the student council to raise funds for activities.

Proceeds from the fall festival will be used for ongoing school programs and materials at Carroll Catholic School.
