Several Crawford students have been selected to attend the National History Day Competition in Washington DC, and the community will be having fundraisers to help with covering the costs associated with the trip.
According to Moni Hourt, the events will be held at the golf course in Crawford on May 24 and 25. A dinner and auction will begin at 6 pm on May 24, which is a Friday evening. Hourt said the students going to Washington will have their projects displayed, and they will entertain those in attendance with their presentations during and after dinner. Following the presentations, a live and silent auction will take place. Donations are being accepted for the auction, and can either be dropped off at Hourt’s Body Shop in Crawford, or arrangements can be made by calling Hourt.
A golf tournament will be held on Saturday, May 25, at the golf course, and more information can be obtained by calling Tucker Knode at the course, 665-2431. Hourt said people do not need to purchase tickets in advance, but they can do so by calling her at 665-1138 during the evening, or 430-0398 during the day.
