Show your support for the Glen Rose Tigers with a special commemorative brick to be placed at the new sports stadium.
The Glen Rose Athletic Booster Club is selling the bricks, which are made of clay and match those on the exterior of the new arena.
The bricks come in two sizes — the standard-size brick, measuring 4 inches by 8 inches, for $50, or a larger brick, measuring 8 inches by 8 inches, for $100.
The sale will be going on for several months, but the Booster Club would like to take orders as soon as possible. The foundation for the new walkway where the bricks will be place will be ready this month.
“Anyone can buy a brick at our merchandise table (set up at the stadium during games) — parents, grandparents, alumni or business,” said Amanda Box, the Booster Club's treasurer and reporter. “It's for anyone to show their support for our Tiger athletes.”
Look for the GRABC canopy at football games.
The Booster Club also plans to put up Tiger flags downtown and along U.S. Highway 67 to show support on Fridays for games. They are red with white “GR”s on them. The first shipment should occur in the next 30 days. The flags cost $15 each and come with a pole.
The Booster Club supports all athletic activities. It purchased the big blow-up Tiger head and tunnel set up at every varsity game, whether it's home or away. The club also has helped purchase other athletic equipment and anything needed to promote school spirt.
The club meets the first Wednesday of each month at 5 p.m. in the high school cafeteria. Anyone interested is invited to attend. Check out the club's Facebook page, too, for news about fundraisers and projects.
