Carnival Club

Delainey Bailey, Reporter

On Sunday October 27, Wayne City Matters hosted the Fall Carnival on the Wayne City Baptist Church parking lot where families could enjoy games, trunk or treat, and a costume competition. Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) ran a booth at the carnival this year. The booth included a pumpkin craft for kids to make and handed out glow-in-the-dark stickers. The children loved doing a hands-on activity.

President Delainey Bailey and Vice President Emilee Jones set up the table, sign, and brought the crafts at 2:30. The carnival lasted until 5:15 when the Halloween costume judging began. FCCLA members volunteered to work the booth for service hours. FCCLA has never participated in the Fall Carnival until this year. The event was a huge success to the community and brought many smiles and new memories to families. 

FCCLA is a community service-based club. At the beginning of the year, leaders work in lunch meetings to discuss community service projects for members to participate in for the school year. Leaders picked the pumpkin craft out for the kids to make at the carnival and stickers to hand out. Vice President Emilee Jones said, “I loved being able to help the kids make a craft even though the googly eyes on the craft were difficult! It was perfect weather for the Fall Carnival.”
