Hello Team Orange parents and friends,
Reminder - The parent meeting is Thursday, November 9th in room 400 at 6:45pm. Everyone is strongly encouraged to attend this meeting. You will meet the coaches, hear about the upcoming season and learn how you can help the team throughout the season.
PLEASE HELP!! We need LOTS of help after the parent meeting to season all of the pork loins. We need as many parents/ friends/ wrestlers as we can get. We should have over 200 pork loins so the more helpers the better. I know that everyone will be tired but many hands make light work.
Fundraiser- Our second fundraiser of the year - PORK LOIN SALE!! If you haven’t seen your son’s pork loin tickets yet, please ask about them. We are selling them for $25 each. Please collect the money up front and give the customer the top half of the ticket. Pick up is Saturday, November 11th at 1pm by the small gym.
