CHS accepting toys for admission to Dec. 8 games

The Connersville High School Athletic Department will be accepting new unwrapped toys as admission for basketball games on December 8th.

The Lady Spartans host Lawrenceburg, with the JV game starting at noon. Each person that brings a new unwrapped toy will gain free admission to the Lady Spartans game that afternoon.

We will do the same thing for the Spartan boys game that same night as they play host to Pendleton Heights.

Each unwrapped gift is good for only one admission. Otherwise admission is $5 per person.

If you attend both the girls game in the afternoon and the boys game in the evening and you want to gain free admission to both games, you would need a new unwrapped gift for each game. Again, only one admission per toy given at each game.
