Letter Writing Campaign Starts Now

This is an important fundraiser that has traditionally accounted for about $2,500 in fundraising for the team.

The funds received will be allocated to the team equally. You should not be contributing to this campaign (That will occur if we do not meet our goal).

All families are expected and required to participate.

Our fundraising success in January and February, will determine if we have a final fee payment due on March 1.

It is our goal for you to NOT have an additional fee payment, however we need everyone's help to make this a reality.

Signage Sales at GC Field

Our team needs to sell two (2) signs at GC Field. The sponsorship of the signage is $500 and includes production and design. We use a similar design (as show picture right) for all signs at the field. The sign will be up at the field from March through October.

We have a renewal of Marshfield Chevrolet that Wayne Bushnell will be working. But, we have one (1) more sign for sure our team needs to sell.

The sale of the signage, after production costs, will result in 50% of the funds going to our team budget and 50% going to the field improvement fund for facility and equipment needs. We will be purchasing $1,200 of top dressing for the field in February and the funds from signage will go toward this field maintenance project.

If you would please assist in identifying and selling this sign.
