On Friday, March 20 the annual SCC carnival took place at the Brownstown Elementary School. SCC stands for School Community Club, a parent group that has a goal to provide classroom materials, software programs, playground equipment, and much much more when grants and budgets fall short. This year all money raised will go toward new playground equipment. The SCC holds the carnival for two reasons. The first goal is to bring the community together by offering food, games, and prizes. The second goals is to raise money and give back to the school and community.
This year the carnival offered a meal from County Market that included smoked, pulled pork sandwiches, homemade baked beans, cole slaw, chips, dessert, and a drink. There was a variety of activities that included two inflatable playgrounds, face painting, cotton candy, a cake walk, a photo booth, and a raffle ticket drawing on items that were donated from local businesses. Tickets for the raffle were only twenty-five cents each. Tickets for the cake walk, cotton candy, face painting and the photo booth were only $1 each. The SCC works with a group called FUN to set up the carnival and offer all these great activities.Talisha Bloemker said, “We appreciate so much the help of the NHS and art students that take the time to come and help with food, games and face painting. We would also like to thank the teachers that gave so much of their time to help setting up and working the night of the carnival also.” Once again the SCC Carnival was a success. Thanks to all those who participated.
