Embers Offers Friend Ads

Hey, Amity Students!

Do you have a close group of friends—perhaps including a senior? Have you been playing a sport with the same friends for years? Will your club just never be the same after the class of 2018 moves on?

The Embers staff is excited to offer you the opportunity to honor the bond you’ve made with members of this year’s graduating class in the 2018 yearbook—purchase a friend ad today! Bring in those old pictures from the eighth-grade dance or pumpkin carving night and make a collage that will preserve those memories for years to come!

Want to take out an ad as a group? Even better! This is a great way to celebrate your club or team’s achievements this year! The more people who chip in, the cheaper the ad will be!
