Summer Fundraising Opportunity

We have been asked to work the Berrien County Sportsman's Club concession booth Thursday, June 13th thru Sunday, June 16th (Father's Day).


All of the funds you raise through your work-shifts goes to your student's band account. This is a great way to build up their accounts for band camp/marching shoes/future trips. High School students are welcome to work to bolster their accounts as well.


You do not have to work every day; the hours vary. Please give Sherri Keene a call @ 269-921-0506 to secure a shift before they fill up!
