The North Collins Central School District has set its annual Eagle Carnival featuring games and a Chinese auction.

A baked goods sale and refreshments will also be available during the carnival from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday in the junior-senior high school’s gymnasium at 2045 School St.

The carnival’s proceeds are evenly distributed to fund class activities and pay graduation expenses for students in seventh to 12th grades.

Residents may drop off items such as gift certificates, toys, tickets, books or theme baskets in the high school’s main office by Thursday.

Questions may be directed to Karen Saeli at 337-0101 ext. 113.
