Word from the President - Pat Harrington
"Are we ready for the Monster season? I for one am looking to the start of a successful hockey season. The playoffs are in our sights! GO MONSTERS!!!! With the schedule out we can begin to look forward to trips. If you have suggestions let us know."
We will be revising the Booster Club Constitution in the next couple of months. If you would like to comment or see a change you can look up the Constitution on the website and send your suggestions to CHBC President Pat Harrington . The First VP position will be run this year by a committee. Volunteering on this committee will be Diane Burns, Heather Burns, Mary Dejak, Cindy Torkowski, Marcia Slaby, Rebecca Siedler, and Pat Harrington. This committee will include the manning the Booster Club table and the planning the annual Awards Dinner. We have had a first meeting and talking about how we will operate and some areas we want to improve and some we want to change.
****We will be asking members to help us with certain functions as we are moving forward.****
MEMBERSHIP NEWS - Diane Burns
As the 2018-2019 Cleveland Monsters hockey season approaches, it is time to begin thinking about renewing your hockey club membership. The current membership application and dues are in the process of being reviewed with plans to be discussed at the August 5th meeting / picnic. "Remember, the Cleveland Hockey Booster Club will not be successful without its members. So be on the lookout for the revised membership application in the upcoming months. Until then have a safe and enjoyable summer."
From the Treasurer - Len Matlock
The final score of our Club’s net profit after expenses from our fundraising scholarship banquet in April was $2,959. Our banquet this year was very successful. Lots of contributions both monetary as well as non-cash raffle items were donated giving us that total. Plus with a few special checks including a $10,000 donation by the Cleveland Monsters, we were able to give SIX scholarships away this year.
"Thank you to all who donated! Thank you to all those who attended the banquet! Thank you to all who purchased tickets for our raffles and participated in our auctions! Thank you to all Club members who raised money in other ways throughout the hockey season! A special thank you in contributing towards the final score goes to Lynne Mathias and her team who gave up of their time and energy planning, putting on the banquet, and manning our table in the concourse throughout the hockey season! To all we are grateful as together we continue to support hockey in Cleveland at all levels and add to its rich heritage."
