2 home scrimmages, need volunteers

The Varsity football team has 2 home scrimmages in August. Saturday, August 16 at 10 a.m. and Thursday, August 21 at 7 p.m. The Touchdown Club will be selling concessions. Parents – please volunteer to bring food.  We already have people signed up for meatballs, haluski, BBQ, pierogies, walking tacos and hot dogs. We are in need of: canned soda, Gatorade, desserts (individually wrapped), burgers, etc. Please bring food to the stadium at 9 a.m. for the Saturday scrimmage and at 6 p.m. for the Thursday scrimmage. Breakfast items would also be good for the morning scrimmage.

We also need parents to volunteer to work in the concession stand. If everyone donates 15 minutes, you can enjoy most of the scrimmage.

Thank you and we hope everyone will come out to support the team!
