Vote for your favorite photograph

The photography show is on display right now in the lobby of the Battlement Mesa Activity Center. There are more than 45 photographs in three categories – 35 mm, black and white and digital. All of the entries are just superb; it is definitely worth a trip to the center to view these fine photographs. And while you’re there, vote for your favorite. I really had a difficult time making a selection; I tried to talk Fran into letting me vote for several. The photos will be on display through Oct.10.•••••You don’t have to be a high school student’s parent to join the Booster Club. We are a group of adults wishing to enhance the lives of all the students at Grand Valley High School. Please bring your talents and join us. The next meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 5, at 6:30 p.m. in the high school cafetorium. Each year the Booster Club funds scholarships to graduating seniors and continuing education scholarships to past graduates. We also fund mini-grants to various groups including sports, fine arts, and student clubs. In addition, we host a safe after-prom party every year. This year our main effort is going to be fund-raising to construct a ticket booth for the stadium. Homecoming is Oct. 14, and we have many fund-raising efforts in conjunction with this event. Jody Williams, Rose Belden and Sandy Hansen took individual pictures of every student involved in football, volleyball and cheerleading. We will be making these into button pins for parents to wear and display pride in their child. Pins will be on sale for $2, with a red rosette $4 at the volleyball and football games on Friday, Oct. 14. The Booster Club will also be selling football mum corsages on homecoming night. Make sure your lady has one for the game. Call Mary at 309-8589 to place your order. ••••• A Wine Tasting and a Taste of the Grand Valley is sponsored by the Mt.
