The SKIL Resource Center, Inc., in cooperation with the Parsons Police Officers Association, is hosting the 3rd Annual Parsons, Kan., Collectors Show dubbed “Cool Collectibles” on Saturday, Feb. 9, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Parsons Municipal Building.
This family oriented, free event is a fund-raiser benefitting the youth of the Parsons area through the programs and projects of the Parsons Police Officers Association and the SKIL Resource Center, Inc. As an additional attraction, the Parsons Coin Club will give free coin gifts to youth attending the event on a first come, first served basis, while they last.
“This is the third year of this event in Parsons and we are pleased to team up with Neil Springer and the Parsons Officers to again raise money for the Shaun Hill Football camp and other projects benefitting the youth of this area,” stated Dave Sorrick, director of development and special projects for SKIL. “We hope to continue to encourage the healthful hobby of collecting and also raise money for local youth activities,” Sorrick added.
The one-day show will feature sports cards, memorabilia, coins and precious metals, and jewels and gems, as well as other small antiques and collectibles. The public is invited to buy, sell or trade with the vendors on site. Vendor tables are available for rent by contacting Dave Sorrick at 620-423-6600 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Proceeds from the vendor rentals will benefit these local youth programs. There will be no charge for admission and parking is always free in downtown Parsons. Concessions will be available.
