Midland Athletic Boosters
President - Sheri Dosland
Vice President - Paula Klein
Secretary - Pasha Bales
Treasurer - Stephanie Kaftan
Athletic Booster meetings are scheduled the second Wednesday of each month at 6:30PM usually at the high school. All parents of athletes in grades 6-12 welcome and encouraged to attend!
There are a lot of ways you can help the boosters - attending meetings and giving ideas, organizing food stand workers, inventorying food stand supplies, picking up food stand supplies at Sam's Club, inventorying/ordering beverages, coordinating apparel orders, etc. If you can help in one of these other ways it can replace food stand worker assignments. Please let an officer know how you can help them out.

CINDY DIRKS NAMED 16-17 ATHLETIC BOOSTER OF THE YEAR
Cindy Dirks has been very actively involved in Midland High School athletics for over 10 years. She passionately supports all Midland athletes and programs. She has been an active member of the Athletic Booster Club for over 10 years. She served as treasurer for three of those years. In that capacity, she placed orders, picked-up orders, and managed income and expenses. She made the transition to the next treasurer very easy by taking the time to explain things well, offer suggestions and answer questions.
One other project that Cindy was brave enough to take on was making fruit cups. If you've ever made these you can truly appreciate what a task it is to make them in large quantities. It can take up to 5 hours a week to make these to keep up with the need in the food stand.
Thanks for your years of dedication to the Booster Club Cindy! We hope you continue to attend Midland activities and can sit back and relax from here on out! Congrats to Cindy on a well deserved award!
Thanks to all who help the boosters selflessly each and every year! Nominate someone you feel is deserving next February for this award!

NOTE: The concession stand at home athletic events is run by parent volunteers. The profit from the concession stand is used to purchase uniforms, equipment that the AD can't purchase, and supplies to support our student athletes (posters and stuff for Homecoming mostly at this time). If other groups want to sell food at a home event or use Booster equipment at a event, please have that sponsor attend a meeting and ask us. It is not OK for a group to just assume they can hold a supper during a basketball game. We plan inventory and schedule our workers accordingly. We can't give up every Friday or Saturday quad basketball date to other groups. I can't remember when we have ever told any group they could not sell food, but it is only right that the sponsor and students learn that one must ask and be given permission to do something of this nature.
