The Yellow Rose of Texas Republican Women’s Club in Tomball will present area fifth graders a Constitution Packet that will include a pocket-size constitution and United States Declaration of Independence along with question and answer cards during the month of September.

The club project is part of its participation in the Texas Federation of Republican Women’s Constitution Project. This project is in accordance with the federal law that states any institution that accepts federal funds must teach the Constitution to fifth grade students. Therefore, the Yellow Rose club wants to not only encourage, but also, aid the school district in complying with this law. It is the club’s goal to donate to all of the fifth graders in the Tomball Independent School District a pocket size constitution packet.

The Yellow Rose is accepting donations from individual or organizations to help offset the cost of providing these constitution packets. Those who would like to donate to this project, contact Becky Clepper at
