If anyone wants to help in a new role and be more involved please let us know so we can help with a smooth transition and keep the Boosters strong for the coming year. We are looking at having a social again like last year for a Boosters meeting and have new parents come together. May 16 Date Banquet is set at Cypress Run, not sure price per person may need to raise it to from $25 to $30 per person if we overspend funds compared to what we fundraise for Shrek.
