Community Comes Together at Craft Show

By: Geanna Forster and Izzy Champ

On Saturday December 9th, Shenango High School hosted the third annual Winter Craft Show. This event was run by the drama club to benefit the spring musical, Crazy for You. Vendors, singers, and dancers filled the hallways of the high school for this anticipated event that not only benefits Shenango students, but celebrates the joy of the holiday season.   

Mrs. Leali, choir director, began hosting the craft show as a way to fundraise for the musical in a fun way that would appeal to the community at large.  She loves seeing shoppers pack the hallways in support of Shenango.  The craft show hosted 73 wide-variety vendors. These vendors sold food and items such as kettle corn, coffee, clothes, and Christmas decorations. Senior Mia Albanese jokingly said, “I loved working coffee and making change.”

Students in the musical have to work three-hour shifts to pay off their dues to the club. Any additional hours worked benefit the students as community service. Through this event, just enough money is made to purchase costumes and cover other expenses. “It was a lot of work, but it was worth it in the end. We all had a lot of fun!” exclaimed junior Paige Seitam.
