GLEN ROSE - At the Lions Club girls basketball tournament the Glen Rose High School yearbook and photo journalism students will be sponsoring an arts and craft fair and chili supper in the high school cafeteria on Dec. 3.

The yearbook and photojournalism students are hoping to raise enough funds to help offset the cost of the printing expenses for this year’s yearbooks. In addition to the craft fair and chili supper, the students sold booths to local vendors to sell their items at the craft fair.

Connie McCormick, the GRHS yearbook teacher and advisor, stated that she was looking to have a variety of vendors at the craft fair and emphasized that booths were still available for tonight’s event and could be purchased by calling her at 254-898-3886.

Throughout the years, Mccormick said that the yearbook has relied on businesses and their advertisements to help offset the cost. This year she decided that the craft fair and chili supper would be a good way to get the community involved with helping the students.

The yearbook and photojournalism students work hard to capture moments for the yearbook and now they need more students to purchase the book to help keep it at its current price.

Currently, the yearbook cost $50 and McCormick said they would need 300 ordered by the end of December to maintain that price. As of now she has approximately 50 books ordered. During the craft fair the yearbook committee will have a booth set up for students and parents to order their yearbooks. Yearbook forms can also be found on the Glen Rose ISD website and the Glen Rose High School website.

If you would like to come out and support the yearbook and photojournalism students the craft fair will be from 4 - 8 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 3. Tickets are $5.
