FOOD BANK


    One of the ways the Association supports our community is through the Food Bank.  It is startling to see the number of people that depend on the Food Bank and how the Food Bank struggles to provide enough food for the demand.  We have an opportunity to help with donations of food and money at our 3rd Weekend show and at the Bluegrass Feativals.    Also, if you can't make the show, Neal at Glen Rose Music will collect food and cash donations at his store.  You can also mail donations to our P.O. Box. 

 

The Food Bank announces a list of food items that it would like the most:

   Peanut Butter and Jelly.   (They like the smaller 16 oz size)

   Hamburger and Tuna Helper.

   Mac and Cheese

   Powered Milk.

   Canned Vegtables and Fruit.   (They like the smaller 16 oz size)

   Baby Food

SCHOLARSHIPS


    The Association sponsors scholarships for students through the local school system.  The number and amount of the scholarships are determined at the end of the school year.   Any contribution to the scholarship fund would be helpful in keeping this an ongoing program.  

    The winners of the 2015 Scholarships are: Cheyene Parker and Baylie Kapavik.

    The winners of the 2016 Scholarships are: Devan Elliot and Diego Alberto Ruiz

BLUEGRASS FESTIVALS

 

The City of Glen Rose holds Two Bluegrass Festivals each year.  Association members help the City with the operation of the festivals.  We also sponsor the Wednsday night free Bean Supper that is very popular with the attendees to the festivals.  The Blue Grass Bands that you see on the square on the Friday and Saturday of the festival weekend are Association members there to promote the festival at OakDale Park.
