Fillmore Central receives donations from Booster Club


Mon, Mar 30th, 2015
Posted in Harmony Education

Jim Peters spoke to the Fillmore Central School Board on March 24 regarding the Booster Club and several donations that have been made.

Peters explained the Booster Club started out for wrestling, then became a fundraiser for Fillmore Central. Over the past year, they have raised more money than he ever thought they would, and that money will go for equipment, uniforms, and many other things the district needs.

According to Peters, the biggest fundraisers have been the Youth Wrestling, the membership drive, the Falcon Fun Run, and the golf tournament.

“We have been blown away at the generosity of the community,” said Peters. He said they currently have $30,000, but this year they raised between $40-50,000.

Peters went over the some of the things they have done this past year. Along with the Preston Park Board and the Preston Area Foundation they redid the softball dugouts in Preston. They also purchased volleyball nets, golf uniforms, wrestling section hotel rooms, youth singlets, scorer’s tables for both gyms, and the water cart at the football field, and a portable AED (automated external defibrillator), among others.

The summer membership drive is approaching, and they are looking at bigger needs down the road. Peters asked for any direction from the board on what they can do to help.

“It has been a great first year,” he said. “Unbelievable.”

The board gratefully accepted a donation from Bob Peters for $1,000 for the purchase of a new indoor/outdoor mound for the baseball field. They also accepted the donations from the Booster Club, including $1,069 for new varsity baseball uniforms, $1,699 for a new power clean set for the weight room, $4,898.67 for a groomer machine for the baseball and softball fields, $7,123 for new volleyball netting, and $1,000 for new golf shirts for boys and girls.

Personnel

The board approved the resignation of Jade Sexton as a special ed. paraprofessional and Jamie Knutson as custodian.

The board also approved the resignations of two teachers who will be retiring at the end of the year. Cheryl Schumacher has worked for Fillmore Central for 19 years, and Becky Brown-Ferden for 28 years. The board thanked them for the years of service.

Emily Fishbaugher was hired to work in SAC, and Dylan Birch was hired for SAC during the summer months.
