The second annual Richmond Hill Wildcat Band Spring Flea Market will be held Saturday, Feb. 29 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. (rain or shine) at the J.F. Gregory Park Pavilion.
Neighbors will be selling furniture, toys, clothes, decor and much more.
Organizers say there will be a Richmond Hill Fire Department truck on display for the kids and the beautiful Corvettes of the Chosen-Liberty Corvette Club for car enthusiasts.
There will be local arts and craft booths, chalk couture and a face painter. Girl Scouts troop 30213 will be selling cookies and Boy Scouts troop 486 will be selling their famous kettle corn.
Booths are still available: A half booth is 10 ft by 26 ft for $25 and a full booth, 20 ft by 26 ft is $40.
Approximately $500 was raised last year off of booth sales and the sweets table, organizers said. The flea market is just one of the fundraisers the band puts on throughout the year.
The band leadership of Dr. Keine, Lea Snead, Sean Sullivan and Marlon Harman, along with the band's parent booster board and club work year round to support the students in the marching band.
All money raised goes to instrument repair and maintenance, props for competitions, guest clinicians, uniforms, but most importantly, band leaders say, to keeping the fees to participate at a minimum. The goal is always to have all students be able to participate despite their financial situation.
There are currently 206 students in the marching band and color guard combined.
In addition to the flea market, the band raises money year-round through the sale of Savannah Bananas tickets, candy sales and coffee and doughnut sales.
