RHS club creates kids’ carnival for festival

By Shawn Roney/For The Richmond News

Thanks to a Rotary-sponsored program, the folks who organize Outlaw Days have some helping hands this year that they didn’t have when the annual event was launched in 2012.

The Richmond High School Interact Club is organizing a children’s carnival midway for Saturday festival in Richmond. According to club adviser Bob Lauck, Interact members will oversee such games as bean bag toss, ladder golf and duck. The group got help from RHSA Art Club by creating a western-theme backdrop for its Nerf gun shooting gallery.

“Everybody will win a prize for playing,” Lauck said recently by telephone.

Club members will assist in other ways, according to Lauck. They’ll help set up the concert stage for a Sept. 20 gospel music show and put barricades in place, he said. They’ll also assist with the chili cook-off and festival cleanup.

“From stem to stern, we’re going to be involved,” he said.
