Carnival costumes stolen

Story Picture
The carnival road march is on the eleventh, and while most groups are putting the finishing touches on their costumes, one junior band has to start over from scratch. The reason? Some malicious person stole all of their costumes, and the art supplies that Georgette Staine and her band members had worked so hard to get. The Raccoon Street Posse never was successful in getting corporate sponsorship and has been handicapped by a lack of funds from the beginning. Now they are hoping that members of the community will come forward so the children aged eight to fifteen won’t be cheated out of their big day.

Q: “For your costumes, if people are thinking about donating anything, what kinds of things would they need to send?”

Georgette Staine, Group Organizer

“Cloth, glue gun, glitters, bristle board, sponge, spray paint, and scissors, because they gone with everything.”

Q: “How did the children react to finding out that their costumes had been stolen?”

Georgette Staine

“Some of them wanted to stop. Some of them you know, they were just vex; they vex bad. Every day they used to come and try on, you know, try on this, see if it still fit. They used to bother me every day. They just vex; they just vex.”

Victor L. Bryant and Company Limited has already stepped forward to offer some assistance to the band. The Carnival Association has also donated five hundred dollars to the cause. If you would like to help with a cash donation or a gift of supplies, you can contact Georgette Staine at six-seven-four-two Raccoon Street.
