Many thanks to those families and all of the Churchill supporters who have already “joined the club” this year.

 2. Booster Club Sports Physicals Clinic A Big Success!
The Booster Club offered its first-ever sports physicals clinic in mid-November and the program met with great success. The fundraiser, spearheaded by Booster Club Board Member Representative Jim Edwards, raised $1,000 for Winston Churchill High School sports programs and student-athletes. Many thanks to Jim for organizing this event, which the Booster Club plans to offer up to three times a year in the future.
The fundraiser was made possible with the generous help of several volunteers, and especially Dr. Daniel Pereles of Montgomery Othopaedics, who donated his time to administer the physicals. Thank you to everyone who helped make it a success! Watch for news about our next clinic, tentatively scheduled for mid-June.
