Cheer and Dance team selling family photo packages Saturday JESSICA RIZOR

CONWAY CHRONICLES With the holiday season quickly approaching, a lot of people are already thinking about what they are going to do for the gift-giving portion during this time of the year. There are many options for gifts, but if you would like to go with a traditional gift, the Conway High School and Junior High Cheer and Dance girls have you covered! This year the cheer and dance team has decided to partner with

Remember When Photography to offer, to the community, the opportunity for a family photo. This opportunity also serves as a fundraiser for the cheer and dance team to give them the chance to upgrade and get new supplies for the team. The team will be hosting family photo mini sessions on Nov. 10 in the Ezard Elementary gym. The session will consist of a digital copy of one pose and the chance to book a full session with Remember When Photography. This photo session is the perfect opportunity

to get a family picture that would work great for gift cards this holiday season! The cost for a mini session will be $15. If you or someone you know would like to have a family photo session, it can be done by making an RSVP with Mrs. Pulley through email (apulley@ Title the email “Family Photos.” If you do not make reservations, you can be at the elementary when the doors open at 1 p.m. or before they close at 3 p.m.
