With the start of the 2015-16 school year a little less than two weeks away, practices for the Fall Athletic seasons have begun and the annual membership drive for the Emmetsburg E-Hawk Booster Club is once again underway.

The Booster Club is once again soliciting memberships and volunteers to not only join and support the student athletes of the Emmetsburg Community Schools, but also to help out with their time, talent and treasures for various functions and events.

Members of the Emmetsburg E-Hawk Booster Club assist the athletic programs with concession stand operations, ticket takers and other capacities throughout the school year, and signups for assisting at various events is currently underway in conjunction with the annual membership drive.

Each year, Booster club memberships offer supporters of Emmetsburg athletic programs a chance not only to assist in the ongoing efforts of the student athletes, but also an opportunity for boosters to be recognized for their support. Through the yearly membership in the E-Hawk Booster Club, the monies raised are used to provide additional financial support to all athletic programs sponsored by the Emmetsburg Community Schools.

In the 2013-2014 school year, through the efforts of the Emmetsburg Sports Booster Club, a donation of $15,040 was given to the Emmetsburg Community Schools to be placed in the General Activities budget. Additionally, funds were designated or donated for a banner for State Cross Country Qualifiers, a donation towards the purchase of new baseball and softball bats and donations for new Speed-Agility-Quickness equipment, along with 160 SAQ?T-Shirts for the student participants in the program.

A donation was made to assist with the Coaching Seminar, as well as the purchase of new uniforms for the Boys track team and a donation towards new middle school football jerseys.

The Booster club purchases a set of E-Hawk pin flags for the greens at the Five Island Golf Course to be used for home golf meets, and also donated towards a new whirlpool for the boys locker room.

A donation was made to assist with the purchase of a new popcorn popper and hot dog roller grill for the concession stand and funds were also donated to assist with the purchase of new cheerleading uniforms and Cross Country warm up suits.

A donation was made to purchase clay bricks and packing clay for use with the softball and baseball pitching mounds and batters’ box on the baseball diamond.

The Booster Club sponsored the Senior Athletic Recognition Banquet, and furnished sack lunches for athletes traveling to away events. Meal funds for athletes competing in state competition events were also donated during the year, along with funding for the B.E.S.T. Shooting Camp, HUDL?Software for multiple sports and a donation for the Hot Shots Trap Shooting Team.
