by Misti Welter, Booster Club President
I appreciate everyone taking time out of their busy lives to attend the annual Booster Club kick off. Thank you to Danae, Misti and Janelle for getting things set up, preparing the food and drinks. A big thanks to Kim Cropsey, Kym Lebeda and Gayle Mohr for making the spirit signs showing support of our local athletic teams.
Sept. 2nd is also the first concession that the Booster Club is involved in as it is the opening season for the Middle School Football players and possibly a JV game. If you are able to assist in the concession, the set up or take down please let one of the officers of the Booster Club know. The meeting moved on with reporting that our first sponsored tailgate will be at our Homecoming Game on Sept. 12th. The fundraising efforts will be matched by Modern Woodmen of America. As the date gets closer I will be gathering up volunteers.
The next item on the agenda was the election of officers. Janell Choal announced that she would be stepping down from the office of president. Misty Welter is the new president, Danae Vavra remains vice-president, Misti Chester treasurer and Natasha Thiry secretary. As new President my first order of business was to inform members that the organization does have a website that is linked to the Lyman School District site and that we have a face book page. It was also noted that Kathy Houchin has completed her quests for advertisers and funds for the annual athletic programs.
Coaches and other activities directors were reminded that coolers are available for them to use for events when needed. Many athletes benefit from snacks on their bus trip to their event and I would like to clarify that parents of the athletes are the ones who should be thanked as they are responsible for this act of kindness.
The Booster Club is here to support our school, students and coaches, suggestions on how we can support our teams is welcomed.
The winner of the raffled quilt made and donated by Marie Charger was Danae Vavra.
