Clear the Shelter

There are over 70 dogs and at LARAS House hoping to be adopted and taken to their forever home, and cats as well! Saturday between 10 am and 3 pm you can stop by and find a furry friend to add to your family free of charge for Clear the Shelter. Check out LARA’s House Facebook page for more information!

“We want to adopt all the pets out,” said Bronna Haley, Kennel Manager for LARAS House. “Our pets are, if they’re neutered or spayed, $100, and it also includes rabies, vaccinations and a microchip. On this day they’re getting all that for free. We’re going to be putting up the little triangle flags that say “Clear the Shelter”. Hopefully they see it and it brings a lot of people in.

Groesbeck Football

2-a-days are in full swing, and the Groesbeck Goats are working hard in the summer heat to prepare for the upcoming football season. Saturday, August 12, the Goats participated in a red vs. white scrimmage on the home field, as family and friends looked on. The Watermelon Bowl gave the community a sneak peek into the week's-worth of hard work that has been put in so far, and a preview of the season to come. The game schedule for the Groesbeck Goats can be found on the sports page.

Painting Parking Spots

Seniors have been given the opportunity to put their artsy side on display, and have spent all week painting their designated parking spots in the high school parking lot. Designs had to be approved by GHS, but students have the creative freedom to personalize their parking spot for the school year. We’ll wait for the paint to dry and have pictures in next week’s issue of the Journal!
