LHS Booster Club aims for turnout at Crab Feed

Loyalton High School Booster Club is having a crab feed fundraiser April 2 at the Sierra Valley Grange in Vinton. The doors will be open at 4 p.m. but the fun will begin at 5. The crab feed will end after the live auction.

The Loyalton Booster Club sponsors the crab feed to support LHS athletic programs. The Booster Club helps all the sports.

Active club member Carolyn Roberti said most of Booster Club money goes to transportation and fuel reimbursements.

There will be a dinner followed by an auction. Those attending can also purchase raffle tickets for numerous donated items.

Businesses from around Sierra County  donate many great items for the auction. Each class–freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors– will have their own basket that will be put up for auction.

The basket themes are freshmen, gardening and barbecue; sophomores, kitchen; juniors, movie night; and seniors, off to college. The class baskets all have their own theme that was chosen at a recent class meeting.

Booster Club member Carolyn Roberti said, “The baskets are packed full of good things.” She also said she can’t wait to see them and that the crab feed wouldn’t happen without all the help from the parents and volunteers.
