Blue Pony Booster Club continues to help HHS students
The Blue Pony Booster Club has been a driving force behind Havre High athletics and activities. The organization has been one which helps with many different aspects of Blue Pony sports and extra cuuricular activities.
And the 2011-12 school year begins for the club with the annual Blue/White Day at Havre High on Aug. 20. That is the day when the Blue Pony volleyball team holds its Blue/White Scrimmage at 2 p.m. at the HHS gymnasium, and things culminate with the Blue/White Football Game at 5:30 p.m. at Blue Pony Stadium.
The Booster Club holds a membership drive encouraging community members to sign up and become a Booster Club member and if interested also sign up to be on a calling list to work concessions during the Blue/White game.
During the football scrimmage the Booster Club will also be doing a barbeque. Patrons interested in the meal have their chose of a hamburger or hot dog, a pop and chips for $5 a person. This is a great opportunity to support Havre High and meet the board members.
Havre Blue Pony Booster Club is an organization comprised of 14 local parent and community volunteers whose goal is to promote "Pony Pride" throughout the community. The club also helps Havre High School students and organizations with financing such as purchasing materials and, or equipment that will enhance their ability to perform and succeed in their club, activity or sporting event. It is the goal to help maintain support, encourage positive behavior and good sportsmanship for all clubs activities and sport events at Havre High School.
