New Booster Masthead 3

Booster News, September 2012 

Greetings, friends of the WCHS Booster Club!

It’s an exciting time of year with classes back in session, and our Churchill Bulldogs back on the field and on the court.

It’s been a busy summer for the Booster Club in part because last winter, the Booster’s board voted to approve the purchase of a new stadium scoreboard, complete with the traditional static scoreboard and, above it, a digital screen that can display videos (produced by Churchill students) and ads by local businesses and staunch Bulldog supporters. The entire scoreboard was installed last month and was live for the Bulldog football team’s first game of the season, against Whitman. 

The Booster Club is excited to not only help enhance the experience of all games that take place in the stadium, but to also be in a position to make this contribution to Churchill’s athletic facilities. Through the hard work of volunteers and responsible spending over several years, the Boosters built the reserves needed to buy the scoreboard—one that has the capability, through digital advertising, to generate a healthy return on our investment for years to come. And we’ll be able to direct the revenue it generates back to Churchill’s athletic teams.

The Booster Club’s work to support Churchill athletics is ongoing. We have many fundraising activities planned for the year, including our Bulldog Golf Classic, coming up on Churchill’s Homecoming Day, Fri., Oct. 19. Hope you can make it. See details below.

Also, please join us for our first Booster Club meeting of the school year, on Wed., Sept. 12 at 7 p.m. in Room 126 (across from the auditorium entrance).

We are only as effective as the commitment volunteers are willing to make to the Boosters. So don’t stand on the sideline; we need everyone. Get involved!

Jim Edwards,
Churchill Booster Club
