Carnival coming to NY Mills

The carnival is coming to town and many volunteers are needed to pull off this brand new adven-ture.

The Community Supporting Classrooms (CSC) committee is finalizing the plans for the first an-nual New York Mills Community Carnival. The committee consists of parents, teachers and admini-stration.

The Carnival will be held on Friday, Nov. 18 from 4 to 7 p.m. Everyone is invited to the sports center and commons at the New York Mills School to enjoy more than 20 games and browse a silent auction. Food will also be served.

The CSC is excited to offer a variety of game booths including: baseball toss, photo booth, pirates den, princess parlor, and wacky hair.

Tickets are needed to participate in the games. Twenty tickets can be purchased for $5 at the door. Reduced prices are offered the nights of conferences (Oct 17-18) at a rate of 25 tickets for $5.

The silent auction will include donations from area businesses and themed baskets from elementary classrooms. For instance, one third grade class plans a "Feed the Birds" basket. Community donations are also being accepted for the silent auction.

Also on the night of conferences, there will be a booth set up for volunteers. Many volunteers are needed to help with each booth.

Those who are interested in volunteering can look for the table by the Elementary Media Center. Parents and community members can sign up to help at specific booths of their choice.

All proceeds will go toward this year's theme: "Classroom Enhancements." Depending on the in-come generated, some of the wish list includes field trips, interactive overhead projectors, speakers, digital cameras, ipads, books and more.

The NY Mills Lions Club donated the startup costs for this carnival.
