Clay Alumni President, Charles Leonard, stated this will be a large event with numerous items for sale. This will afford the public an opportunity to do some early Christmas shopping, while assisting a good cause, as the proceeds of this fund raiser benefit the Clay School Legacy Scholarship Fund. Leonard stated their organization was able to award fourteen (14) scholarships to the Clay Class of 2013. Leonard further stated that through money raised through fund raisers like the Craft Show, his group will be able to award even more scholarships in the future. Leonard stated this promises to be a great event, and that he hopes that everyone in the community will come out and take part in it.
