    SEMINOLE -- The Kiwanis Club of Seminole is looking for a few more business people and crafters for its free Fall Festival on Nov. 11 and 12, its largest fundraiser of the year.

    In all there are 30 spaces in the business tent, which showcases local businesses and services. A few spaces remain, says Terry Carr, coordinator. They will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

    "We can definitely use more crafters, too," said Linda Starman, who is handling arts and crafts scheduling. Crafters can apply for a 10-by-10-foot space for $45 for both days or $30 for one day. She will accept applications through this weekend. The two-day festival will include an old-fashioned pig roast, other concessions stands, music, hayrides and other activities and games. Scheduled entertainers include Songstory with Betsy Paulet, a Times staff writer, and her husband, Lee Paulet; the Beverly Hillbilly Cloggers; and musical groups from Seminole Middle School.

    About 11 a.m. Saturday, in observance of Veterans Day, a guard from Cross Bayou American Legion Post 252, Seminole, will participate in a flag ceremony. Also, the ninth annual Classic/Antique Auto Show will take place at the festival.

    Proceeds from the event, which in the past has attracted thousands of visitors, go toward various Kiwanis projects such as Young Children-Priority One, which provides funds to combat Iodine Deficiency Disorder in developing countries, youth programs at area schools, the Every Child a Swimmer program and educational scholarships.

    Bill Miller, chairman for the past 13 years, is hoping for a lot of community support. "This is going to be a big event and we are excited to be the Kiwanis Club leading the way in the 21st century in our area."

    To sign up for a spot in the business tent, call Terry Carr at 344-2660. Prospective crafters should call Linda Starman at 397-2083. For information on the Antique Car Show and all other festival information, call Bill Miller at 393-2001 during the day or 596-6228 in the evening. Or call the Kiwanis Club's line at 394-2582.

    If you go

    The 16th annual Fall Festival of the Kiwanis Club of Seminole will be from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Nov. 11 and noon to 5 p.m. Nov. 12, Seminole Vocational Education Center, intersection of 86th Avenue and 125th Street.
