CONCESSIONS

The stadium concessions upgrade is completed and looks great. There is a new hot water heater yet to be installed. The outside color choice was limited to District112 approved colors. Coolers need to be moved back in and filled. Volunteer signup is going well; Dana is heading that up. Our first couple home games are looking good for volunteers. Teams and coaches are excited about the new spending rules for concessions earnings. The speech team and band are looking for more opportunities to volunteer. Our first home football game is September 7. 

MEMBERSHIP

Membership package prices will remain the same. A Hawks decal will be given to people signing up. An updated flyer will be available on Back to School night and inserted into out Sponsor brochure. The new flyer will also be posted on our website. Flyers can also be handed out to Elementary and Middle Schools via Peach Jar. There was discussion about adding a Patron option for $25 that would be a tax-deductible Boosters donation. 

HAWK SHOP

The shop is up and running and doing well. The walls of the shop were reinforced over the summer and can more hold more weight from merchandise and shelving. We are looking for someone to mud and tape the drywall. With Wally’s closing, we may need more hours operating and more volunteers especially during evening hours. Volunteering at the Hawk Shop requires some training.
