Enjoy. WSU athletics to lend a helping holiday hand By Kristy Higginson Signpost staff writer 1 II he Weber State University athletic department has been invited to join with Mountain Fuel this holiday season to provide a little touch of Christmas to the students at Dee Elementary School in Ogden. The employees of Mountain Fuel have chosen to adopt the elementary school, which has approximately 700 students in kindergarten through fifth grade. On Dec. 17, they will host a two hour Christmas party at the school. The athletes at WSU have been invited to build on the "role model" image they hold on young children within the community. WSU women's volleyball coach Al Givens said that members of the team are planning on participating and contributing. "Sometimes we don't realize how fortunate we are and the fact that we have a lot of blessings tOjbe thankful for until we start helping someone less fortunate," Givens said. The students will join with 15-20 employees of Mountain Fuel for the day and help with games and handing out of gifts. Some of the students may be asked to give a message about Christmas, of giving or the idea of getting along with ones fellow men.thespirit Gary Kofford, manager for the Ogden region of Mountain Fuel, said the employees are planning on putting together a program, which will include skits, games and talks. And, of course, a Christmas party would not be complete without a visit from the big man himself. Yes, Santa Claus will be on hand to visit with the children. Each of the students will receive a Christmas gift. Local businesses have contributed to the project and the employees of Mountain Fuel have raised monev to buy the gil ts. Darren Shepherd, spokesman for Mountain Fuel, said that many local businesses have been helpful and contributed greatly to the project. The gifts will include gloves, scarfs, hats, toothbrushes and toothpaste, and one can't forget stockings filled with candy (allowing the students to have a reason to use their new toothbrush). All the plans are still not worked out and more items may be added, Shepherd said. Kofford said the employees made the decision to adopt the elementary school to make the quality of life better in the area in which they serve and to help those who are in need.

|Description||Weber's current student newspaper, the Signpost, first appeared on September 29, 1937. For two years prior to that time, campus news was disseminated via announcements posted on a bulletin board known as the "Signpost". As a result, the masthead of the first issue of the paper itself featured a rudimentary wooden sign with the title spelled out in rustic-looking letters. Over the years the paper has been published continuously, though the look, size and style has changed several times.|
