Last year, a grease fire burned a portion of their booth, keeping them from raising very much money on their own. But staying true to the charitable nature of the Fall Festival, the community rallied around them and gave what they could to salvage this important fundraiser.
"It feels great to get the support from the community," said volunteer Scotty Wilson. "Down here it's all about family. All the booths came together and pitched in and helped as much as they could. We appreciate everything everyone has done for us. "
Because of donations, the Harwood Booster Club raised around $6,000. This year, they hope to raise $8,000 to $10,000 on their own.
