It's one of the biggest turnouts they've seen in years.

Once again the community steps up to support Parkersburg High School athletics.

The annual ice cream social benefits the PHS soccer teams.

And it's the perfect day for outdoor activities from slip 'n' slide to a bouncy house, it's sure to be a good time.

Parents and the players themselves work to raise money.

It helps with expenses throughout the year saving families from paying out of pocket costs for the team.

"Helps out with a lot of expenses. painting and lining the fields to uniforms to some of the transportation that we have to get the kids to and from the games with," says Parent Volunteer and PHS Soccer Booster's Club member, Will Rogers.

It's also a great experience for the players to get a little ownership in the fundraising efforts.
