Membership Drive continues for Booster Club


Sibley East Wolverines Booster Club, in its charter year, currently has 52 members – 29 family memberships and 23 business memberships.

Tom Doughan of Gaylord, on Monday, gave the Board of Education an update on the group’s organizational efforts. The purpose of the club is to support and promote all activities groups at Sibley East Junior and Senior High, by uniting students, parents, coaches, faculty, staff and the community in a way that enhances the sharing of school spirit, and provides moral as well as financial support.

The club is a not-for-profit group. The Booster Club will operate under a set of by-laws that will created this fall.

Doughan said that it is the goal to have 100 family memberships and 100 business memberships. Promotions were held during Arlington’s Town and Country Days, and a promotion will also be held during Gaylord’s Eggstravaganza.

Family memberships are $25/year. Contributions above $25 will be directed to the sport or group activity noted on the membership application. Family memberships allow parents to attend the meetings of the Booster Club and vote for officers.

There are three levels of business membership – white membership for $25, black membership for $50, and gold membership for $100/year.

The next Booster Club meeting will be Sunday, Aug. 10 at 7:30 p.m. in the Gaylord City Park Shelter.
