know that the last few months have been difficult for most everyone in many different ways and challenges. We have not had a Booster Club Meeting since February. I have been listening to all the health updates and concerns for all of us to start coming out of such strict quarantine protocols. Although some protocols are being lifted, I feel because of the age of the majority of our members it is better to error on the side of caution. Therefore, I am canceling May and June booster club meetings and the Family Reunion fundraiser in June.
I will continue to stay updated on all communications regarding this pandemic and make any changes that I feel are appropriate to keep everyone healthy and safe. As I sit here writing, I am in the hopes that our Family Reunion fundraiser can still be scheduled into this years’ summer fun. Everyone has still been working hard on this event and I know that it would be a fun way to end this quarantine and catch up with friends and families.
In closing, I would like to give you an update regarding our Booster Club Membership Drive, which is the biggest fundraiser for the Booster Club. We are doing well and almost in line with last year’s goals. That being said I would like to remind anyone still wishing to commit to doing so soon. As you know we support a lot of projects around the community that the association budget cannot manage each year. Please understand that I do not wish to impose any hardships on anyone with this reminder. The last few months and those to follow have and will continue to be very different than we all expected to move into 2020. I am just asking as a friendly reminder. In order to help with the expected lower fundraising dollars, it has been decided not to purchase gifts for the different levels of donations this year. This decision will be revisited next year before membership letters go out.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding this update, please do not hesitate to connect me. My prayer for you and your families is that you continue to be safe and healthy through 2020. Please be diligent with keeping yourselves healthy as we move into the next stage, ‘RECOVERY’ from this pandemic.

Booster Club President
