The students of Vermilion Forks Elementary  School (V.F.E.) are busy creating, creating, and creating some more. They are working hard to make art and craft items to sell in order to raise funds for new playground equipment.

Some of the items are Christmas themed and some are not.

In October of this year, Jeff Larsen, manager of Princeton Weyerhaeuser, presented the studdents of Vermilion Forks with a $15,000 grant towards their new playground equipment.

Grade 5/6 teacher at Vermilion Forks, Mrs. Tristen Cleven, headed up a fundraising commitee which hopes to raise $50,000 for a new playcenter for the school.

At 6 p.m., on Thursday, Dec. 5 at Vermilion Forks Elementary School,  the students will host their art sale.

Head on up, maybe you will find the perfect Christmas gift to give to someone special, and at the same time you can help the students of V.F.E. get closer to their dream of having a new playcenter.
