The 2017 Annual Watchdog Athletic Booster Club Membership drive is well underway and it is promising to be even more successful than in our previous year.
In 2016, under the direction of Booster Club Board members, a new level of membership was created. The primary goal of this membership campaign was to eliminate the need for the never-ending fundraising, while raising the funds necessary to support our Watchdog high school athletes.
We also wanted to respect our businesses. They are approached all year long for donations. The new membership campaign allows businesses to plan their contribution for the year, and feel confident they are supporting our Watchdog athletic programs all year long with that one contribution.
“The support of our businesses and community members has been incredible!” current board president, Mike Limmer shared when discussing the success of the new membership campaign. “With these funds, we have been able to support Watchdog athletics in a big way!”
The big way Mike Limmer mentioned includes $4000 in senior athlete scholarships, sponsoring summer camps and workshops for girls and boys basketball, volleyball, wrestling and football, apparel and stipends for our Watchdog state qualifying athletes for XC, Golf, Wrestling and Track, boys basketball travel jackets and apparel, and Homecoming fireworks just to name a few of their many contributions.
They also purchased the new window graphics at the entry to the elementary school and high school. “When people come to our schools for any event we want them to get ready to Unleash the Pride!” former president, and still active board member Jeff Thaler shared.
This year’s membership goal is $30,000 and Mike Limmer is confident they will reach this goal. “The generosity and support we received from our members and corporate sponsors is really amazing. Without them we could not do what we do, and we have even better things planned for this year!” For a list of our 2017 accomplishments take a look at our recent post Thank You for all you do!
