“There are a limited number of spaces and deadline to reserve one is January 1,” it was stressed.

The school is also conducting a contest for the design on the game board as well as its box top. “The design can be a drawing or photo, unique to Gravette. There is no entry fee and the winner will be awardeda prize.
The entry deadline is February 1. For all rules and information contact the above number.
The project is being coordinated through Pride Distributors, Inc., a Farmington Hills, MI, firm.
