Floresville boosters to host ice cream social
FLORESVILLE -- The Floresville Athletic Booster Club will hold its annual Ice Cream Social Friday, Aug. 16, beginning at 7 p.m. at the Eschenburg Field.
The booster club invites all high school and middle school athletes, band members, parents, and the community to join in the fun. Come meet and greet Floresville’s coaches, varsity football players, tennis, volleyball, and cross-country teams, and also the Mighty Tiger Band. Those in attendance can cool off with some ice cream, and then sign up to join the athletic booster club. Spirit items will also be for sale.
Each high school athlete family is asked to bring a half-gallon of ice cream (one per family, not one per athlete) and each Mighty Tiger Band member is asked to bring one 3-liter bottle of soda to the concession stand by 6:30 p.m.
Recently, the booster club elected new officers for the upcoming school year. The 2013-14 officers are President Lisa Stuart, First Vice President Gregg Richards, Second Vice President Tammy Moczygemba, Third Vice President Donna Holstein, Reporter Oralia “Orie” Ramirez, Treasurer Carol Pollok, and Secretary Carolyn Palacios.
At the annual sports banquet, the booster club awarded five senior athletes scholarships. Lisle Raabe and Colby Shodrock each received $700, while Maddison Pollok, Darren Orth, Charles Albert, and Roby Pennartz each received $500. The booster club wishes each of these athletes the best of luck in their futures. Being an active member of the booster club will qualify senior athletes for scholarship opportunities at the end of the school year. The membership deadline to be eligible for senior scholarships is Thursday, Oct. 31.
The next Floresville Athletic Booster Club meeting will be Wednesday, Aug. 7, at 7 p.m. at the Tigers Den. The booster club invites all Tiger and Jaguar parents and fans to join. Attending meetings will keep members informed and involved on what the boosters are doing for Floresville’s athletes, and how the athletes are doing throughout the year.
