MIDDLE SCHOOL FOOTBALL -- Baird and WB plan Saturday events

Walter J. Bairds football program invites the public to a spaghetti supper / auction fundraiser Saturday, May 19 at the WJB cafeteria. All proceeds from the event will go toward the Baird football program -- specifically a new locker room and equipment.

Tickets are $5 per person and will be on sale at the door Saturday. The supper begins at 6 p.m. followed by both a live and silent auction. Members of the Baird football team will be auctioned off in groups of three or four to help with yard work.

A 42-inch flat screen TV will be up for live auction as well as autographed Nashville Predators equipment and tools.

Silent auction items will include: two Hartmann Luggage bags, a Cumberland University football helmet and game passes, a Titans autographed football, an Alabama national championship autographed football, a free family photo session, a six-hour guided fishing tour on the Caney Fork River, all-sport season passes to Cumberland University athletics, movie tickets, house cleaning services, Mary Kay products, a weed-trimmer, a load of gravel, bowling passes, a quilt, personal services such as manicures, pedicures and massages, fitness center passes, haircuts, auto service, speciality desserts and assorted gift bags.
