Band members are selling homemade candles in 8-ounce jelly jars.
"We make the candles ourselves," Band Director Mark Ziegler said. "The Band Boosters purchased equipment to make candles several years ago. They put the wax and scents together and create their own order forms. It's a self-made fundraiser."
Candles are on sale for $7 each. The band will be taking order through Feb. 7. Candles will be available for pick up on Monday, Feb. 27, at Clay City High School.
The money raised through the candle fundraiser will go toward the CCHS band and guard program. Ziegler said the money would be used in the band general fund for music and equipment to help with the winter guard and concert band performances.
"This is something local that benefits our kids, and the money we raise goes directly to our students in Clay Community Schools," Ziegler said. "Everything we make from this fundraiser will directly benefit them."
To order candles, contact a CCHS band member or call the high school office at 812-939-2154.
Orders can also be made by e-mailing Ziegler at firstname.lastname@example.org; be sure to include the quantity and scent of the candle as well as your name, address and phone number.
