On behalf of the Telstar All Sports Boosters I am reaching out. We recently took on the Football Boosters/Snack Shack. Our community is very excited to have Football again and we want to support it anyway we can. That being said, we need volunteers. We need volunteers to donate food and time to run our snack shack during games. This season the high school only has 3 home games. The snack shack in the past has made hand-cut fries, burgers, hot dogs, grilled cheese, crock pot items, baked goods and beverages. We need people to set up/cook/take down from about an hour before games until the game ends. We recommend working in 1-2 hour shifts. Many families and community members come to our games and are there for 3-4 hours. Offering food is a must, however we cannot offer food if we do not have the volunteers to help. Keep in mind all money we make goes back to the students and athletes. In the past we have been able to purchase batting nets, water bubblers around the school, provide lunches for away games, donate money towards uniforms, give t-shirts for Athletes of the Month and we also put on a Sport Banquet for Senior Athletes each year as well as plaques for athletes. There is a home football game this Saturday the 11th. We are looking for volunteers/donations for our limited menu until we get more volunteers. Please let me know if you can donate an item or your time. You can email me at email@example.com Thank you, Koral Fraser

Video of Monday’s SAD44 School Board Meeting - The following link will take you to a Western Hills Access Television recording of Monday nights’s meeting of the MSAD 44 School Board. Please note that following the Pledge of Allegiance, the recording inadvertently switched over to regular programming for a short period of time. It picks up again at approximately the 8 minute mark as the Citizen Comments section of the agenda was underway. Thank you to Josh Morton and Westen Hills Access Television for providing us with this link in advance. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ABS947cwSkQ
