LUHS DECA Chapter hosts 15th Annual Craft Show
MINOCQUA - Hand crafted items are a passion of Cathy Spaeth.

"I make anything from kitchen cloths to wash clothes, dishcloths, and a lot of Christmas items," said Spaeth.

She got to show off her Christmas items this year at the 15th Annual 'Tis The Season Craft Show.

"We just enjoy working with the DECA club and have come here for several years," said Spaeth.

Students use the DECA club as a business and marketing tool. The members at Lakeland Union High School put this event on with Northwoods small businesses.


"The students are very helpful," said Spaeth. "They do an excellent presentation." 

Austin Plowman is a senior and it's his first year running the event as president of Lakeland's DECA chapter.

"It really is an operation," said Plowman. "I mean, I was working concessions and I was busy upon busy."

The show is a way for the students to practice marketing, customer service and raise money for academic competitions and leadership conferences.

"You can tell between the music and by the way people are walking around people are enjoying themselves," said Plowman.
