Mid-Week News: August 21 – 24

  1. We still need help during the game to assist in helping load water bottles and push carts to the stadium before the game, handing out water during the game, and video recording the halftime show.   The link to help in this way is https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0448aaa628a3fb6-volunteers1.
  2. Graeter’s Ice Cream Sales is always a great fundraiser during our home football games.  This is a great opportunity for younger siblings to help support the band and middle school kids can use this volunteer opportunity for BETA hours, we just ask that an adult be with them to handle the money.  Please click the following link to sign up https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0448aaa628a3fb6-graetersWe still need volunteers for 2nd and 3rdquarters.

Thank you all in advance for helping make the first football game a great success.  GO COLONELS!
