Written by David Green.

When it comes to attractive raffle prizes, leave it to the Fayette PTO to hand out the goods.

At the group’s big fund raiser Tuesday, a Dell laptop, a Wii game system and a TomTom GPS system will be given away.

The PTO’s annual Pancake and Sausage Supper is scheduled in the school cafeteria from 5 to 7 p.m. Feb. 10. Children pre-kindergarten and younger will be admitted free.

Fayette Elementary School students continue to sell raffle tickets until drawing time at about 7 p.m. Tickets cost a dollar each or six for $5.

In the previous school year, the PTO donated $10,600 toward the digital announcement sign in front of the school. In addition, $2,500 was given toward the large drop-down flag in the high school gymnasium.

This year’s PTO officers are co-presidents Pam Seiler and Kandi Lemley, secretary Julia Ruger and treasurer Suzy Sommers.

All parents of Fayette students are welcome to attend the monthly PTO meetings.
