FGHS hosts first carnival fundraiser

Forest Grove High School athletes, leadership team members and club participants are pooling their efforts to host a community carnival Friday, May 20.

The carnival will be from 5 to 8 p.m. at the FGHS Basinski Center parking lot at 1401 Nichols Lane. If it rains, the festivities will move inside. All proceeds will be split between the leadership classes, sports teams and clubs volunteering at the carnival.

Admission is free.

The carnival will feature local food vendors Steve’s Boot Scoot’n Kettle Corn, Pizzuti’s Wood Fired Pizza, Fru-Fru Cups and Next Dimension Bakery. Pizzuti’s is donating $1 for every slice of pizza they sell. Members of the National Guard will be coming out and setting up a rock wall, and students will have carnival games ready to go.

FGHS student Sinclaire Leto is a member of the school’s Associated Student Body (ASB), the main organizer of the carnival.

“We are hoping to bring families from all over our community together. We have all local food vendors, the carnival is all about our community and bringing everyone from all over our community together and not just a certain demographic of people,” said Leto. “No matter how successful this year’s carnival is, it will be the start of something great

that will hopefully continue

on much longer than this

year.”
