Students at Gibraltar Area School District have at least one organization to thank when it comes to world-class speakers coming to visit and field trips to places around the county. For over 30 years, Friends of Gibraltar has worked with teachers to provide unique learning opportunities for students while also promoting the arts. Membership fees and fundraisers like Fish Creek’s Hairpin Run 5K on July 4 provide the funding to help bring in special guests and buy materials for projects. FOG Coordinator Vinni Chomeau says its partnership with Gibraltar’s staff is important.
Chomeau says FOG is currently planning special activities for next year’s 100th anniversary of the district.
