CASA of the Tri-Peaks is conducting its annual fund raising effort involving the raffling off of two playhouses.
Tickets for the playhouses will be available only through the month of September. The raffle drawing for The Cottage playhouse will take place Oct. 1, during Frontier Day in Paris. The drawing for The Clubhouse playhouse will take place in Booneville on Oct. 8 during October Daze.
Although the raffle tickets have normally been available for purchase all summer long with the drawing being at each of the county fairs, this year the playhouses were not completed until Aug. 17.
The builders of the playhouses this year included the Paris School District shop class and FFA, Jason Sutliff, Bud Inman, Fr. Jerome Kodell, James Paul Robinson, Charlie Bowerman, and Jim and Jean Richardson.
CASA greatly appreciates this year’s builders, most of whom worked through the hottest days this summer to finish the houses, the many businesses that donated funds or materials to build the houses, the local wrecker companies that always help to move the houses, including Ed William’s and Mike Fredrick’s Body Shop, Hice Towing and Recovery, and Certified Auto Repair and Salvage.
Due to the limited time available to show the playhouses this year, they will remain on display in front of the Logan County Courthouse in Paris through the month of September, and will not be moved to Booneville as they normally are.
Tickets are available at most of the schools in the county, most area banks and the Subiaco Federal Credit Union, the Logan County Courthouses in Booneville and Paris and at The Grapevine Restaurant in Paris.
Here’s a description of the playhouses.
And eight-foot-by-10-foot cottage style playhouse that includes a front and side porch that expands the play area, a bay window with built in window bench and toy box, two double-pane, screened windows for ventilation, curtains, and a window seat cushion. It also has a beautiful and durable laminate floor. The drawing for this playhouse will take place on Frontier Day in Paris, which is Saturday, Oct. 1.
This eight-foot-by-10-foot building was built to serve a variety of purposes. It has an insulated ceiling and walls, two large double pane windows with screens, two wide double doors, and a vinyl floor covering. It has an interior overhead light, four electrical wall outlets and an exterior connection for an extension cord. It is well suited to serve as a kid’s club house, or mom or dad’s workshop, craft or hobby room. It could also serve as a hunting cabin in the woods or as a storage building. The drawing will be held during October Daze on Saturday, Oct. 8 in Booneville.
Court Appointed Special Advocates of the Tri-Peaks, which includes Logan County, serve as special advocates for children involved in the court system.
