Clarksville, TN – On Saturday, September 14th, the Montgomery Central High School Football Boosters held their 1st annual Fall Festival at Hilltop Supermarket.
The festival was held to raise money for the MCHS Football team. The money will be used for equipment, jerseys, and other team needs.
“The event was amazing. The turn out was phenomenal. I was really not expecting this many people and this many kids,” stated Indians Football head coach Jeff Tomlinson. “I thought it was a great turn out.”“A lot of people showed up to the event. It was a lot of fun. I think some of the adults had as much fun as the kids,” said Traci Patrick.
Some of the festivals attractions were live music, food, inflatables, face painting, games, football toss, and more. Tickets could be purchased to play the games, etc.
There was a bake sale and a cake walk that was a hit with everyone. “I won two cakes at the cake walk and my son, Trever, won one as well,” stated Patrick.
The main fundraiser for the event was a chicken dinner. Several grills were going all afternoon and the smell of grilled chicken had everyone eager to get a plate. The dinners were $7.00 each and included a half chicken, potato salad, baked beans and bread. Over 370 meals were sold.
“I loved the fall festival. The event today was our first. We learned a few things. But, we have had the best time. The weather cooperated, no rain, it was fun, just fun,” said Indians Football Boosters president Charlie Bumpus.
“We ask enough of Hilltop and Mike Jackson. They have done so much for us and were proud to have Mike as a booster,” said Tomlinson.
“Hilltop likes to help out the local community so we wanted to help them out,” stated Cody Jackson of Hilltop Supermarket. “We like supporting the community because the community supports us. We are proud to support the Montgomery Central Football team.”
