Prior to the Bugs and Bomber bash, head football coach Benji Mahan and his staff would like to meet with all future football Bombers grades k - 12 and their parents in Dunbar at 5:30. Coach Mahan established a football council made up of former Bombers, parents, community members, etc. and their vision is to build community enthusiasm for a football program that everyone can be proud of - restore Bomber Pride and take the future teams to new heights. Everyone interested is welcome and encouraged to attend.
At this meeting, we are going to unveil our next Hayden Padgett Memorial Pressbox fundraiser, "We 'CAN' Do It"! Our goal is for EVERYONE to get a CAN and start collecting loose change, dollar bills, fives, or any amount they possibly can. Admission to Bomberfest - which is our annual Blue and Gold kick-off in August- will be this CAN, along with a bath towel or liquid body soap The Hayden Padgett Committee felt this is a great way for everyone - even the kids in elementary school - to be part of this special project. Everyone can have fun decorating their own can - any size will do. Just cut a slit in the lid and start accumulating whatever you CAN spare for the next three months.
The Bomber Booster Club will meet at noon today at Western Sizzlin. We will be discussing officers for the 2013-14 school year. Our final meeting will be next Tuesday (since next Monday is when we celebrate Memorial Day). Everyone is welcome to attend.
Janet Wood, AD
