Assembly raises money for yearbook

Ground Zero is packed for one day each year with students purchasing memories. The annual yearbook assembly took place on Aug. 31 as the yearbook class sold books to students eager to reserve their copy.

“I really enjoy getting my yearbook every year,” Dori Richardson, ’05, said. “They are always really well-made, and it’s nice to be able to look back at the year and see pictures of all my friends.”

Approximately160 out of 285 campus students purchased yearbooks at the assembly. For students who did not purchase their yearbook at the assembly, the price jumps to $75 per book, beginning Sept. 1.

“We had to raise the prices this year,” Molly Sargent, yearbook adviser, said. “Each year the cost of production goes up, but I think that we’ve done a pretty good job in keeping the costs down for the student body.”

The class also sold juice, coffee and pastries to supplement their class income.

“We plan to take our profits and add them to those of our parking pass fundraiser,” Sargent said. “We’re going to use the money to add glossy color photos and a metallic foil cover; the yearbook is going to look really cool this year.”

Students enjoyed the chance to have a free period with all their friends.

“It’s nice to just be able to take a break from our day and hang out,” Ryan Martens, ’07, said. “My only suggestion would be that they should just give food away for free!”

In contrast, the assembly was anything but relaxing for members of the yearbook class.

“Selling yearbooks was crazy.” Suzie Falk, ’06, said. “It was my first time selling, so I was going crazy trying to remember how to do everything I had learned. It’s was so crowded and busy!”

While the yearbook distributed 265 copies of the yearbook during May 2004, the one-day only event yielded just over half the number of books that may eventually be sold.

The yearbook theme for this year is “In Retrospect”. Students interested in purchasing a book can contact Molly Sargent, yearbook advisor, at 299-1695, ext. 150 or e-mail her at [email protected].
