  • Rhonda - Thank you for working as Co-Chair of the banquet this year.

  • Anita - Thank you for deciding to try something new with the Photo Booth and getting that together for us.

The biggest thank you goes to Jan Ciscowski for heading up this event! She did a wonderful job of keeping everything and everyone running on time and in an orderly fashion. She took on so much of the stress so that others did not have to. This list, alone, gives a small glimpse into how much work goes into planning and orchestrating such an event. Her talent in organizing everything and getting the best from everyone is truly remarkable. Her quiet authority, graciousness, and efforts are very much admired and appreciated.


What an amazing group of people you all are, and we are so thankful for each of you! Thank you for providing such a wonderful evening to our kids!

Your Serve

THANK YOU TO ALL OUR PARENTS who have graciously volunteered their time to make sure our players have the best possible experience. This includes the entire Booster Club Board and all the parents who have volunteered to help with the website, social media, communication, pictures, tournaments, flower sales, Senior Night, Homecoming, the tennis banquet and countless other things. It truly takes a lot to run this program properly. Thank you so much to those who show up to the booster club meetings, the banquet meetings, and the matches! We have some parents who continually step up to serve and support, and their contribution is very much appreciated.


Boosters are looking for YOUR HELP. We have 127 players; please help us support them and help make this tennis program the best that it can be. GET INVOLVED!!
