Craft Show Proceeds to Benefit HGP Student Safety
Holy Ghost Prep’s Mothers’ Guild presented HGP with a gift of $25,000 at its annual Christmas Dinner on December 1 from proceeds realized from its annual Craft Show, held November 8-9. At the Mothers’ Guild direction, the funds will be dedicated in support of the installation of a new lighted sidewalk, as well as additional pedestrian safety measures. “This will help ensure a safe passage between the current school buildings and the new Bounds property across the street,” noted Mothers’ Guild President Mary Creekmore.

Ghost Around the World Thanks You!
The Ghost Around the World Penny War was a great success. While we set $1200 as our goal so that we could help the Tengeru Vocational School in Tanzania complete building their girls’ dorm, we far exceeded that goal. To date, the total amount raised was $1726. The winning cohort was the Libermann group who enjoyed a free dress down day. Many thanks for helping our brothers and sisters in Africa. Next project: we have 24 computers that we need to ship to that school. If anyone has any suggestions for transporting them, please contact Kathy Posey (firstname.lastname@example.org).
