    CV band boosters hold arts and crafts fundraiser

    It takes a lot of money to run a marching band.

    and instruments, traveling, equipment and feeding the students on the
    road all run up the bill. This once in a lifetime opportunity came on
    top of the band's usual trips to competitions throughout Washington and
    Oregon during the fall.

    Twice every school year, including this
    weekend, the Central Valley High School Band Boosters organize a large
    arts and crafts sale fundraiser. They have been hosting the event since

    Debbie Long, a veteran member of the band boosters and a
    member of the Central Valley School District board of directors, said
    the sales raise around $70,000 a year, the lion's share of the $90,000
    the boosters contribute to the band annually. The school's budget gives
    the band $3,500 per year, and the district pays the band director, Eric
    Parker, a contract of $7,000.

    That doesn't include the out of
    pocket costs for each member of the band, which at CV is around $300 a
    year. The trip to Washington pushed that up $1,200 this year.

    Lori Wilson, whom the band students call "Mommy Wilson," said the boosters bring in clinicians pandora valentine's day charms and provide scholarships for students headed to college.

    They also plan and cook meals Pandora 2016 Charms for the students while they travel.

    "We can do this so much cheaper" compared with sending the kids to get fast food, Wilson Pandora 2016 Charms said.

    Wilson said they also make their own flags for the color guard as a way to save money.

    starts planning the fall craft sale about the time the spring craft
    sale wraps up. The fall sale is always bigger than the one in the
    spring: This year there were 285 booths in the fall, compared to 140
    booths in the spring. The band collects vendor fees and $2 admission
    from shoppers. This year, the craft show had some competition, since
    it's pandora valentine's day 2016 held at the same time as Custer's Arts and Crafts sale at the Spokane fairgrounds.

    "We've actually had a pretty good day," said Dave Gnotta, one of the vendors at this year's sale.

    wife has done this show for 10 years now," said Gnotta, which explained
    his prime location by the front door selling jewelry Silvia Gnotta
    makes. Although they have never had children attend Central Valley, his
    wife has been a big supporter of the band, he said. Band students were
    at the show early in the morning to help bring in their wares.

    Gnotta said that when he and his wife thanked the students for the hand, they told him, "No, thank you for supporting us."

    Linda Cable said she comes every year to find "unique homemade things I can only get here."

    daughter, Haley, a student at Greenacres Middle School, is looking
    forward to attending CV. "I also like the jewelry," Haley said.

    Melinda Jewell was selling handmade jewelry made with pieces of dried potato that had been painted and shellacked.

    "I have to use russets," Jewell said, because the variety has the right amount of starch to survive the dehydration process.
