Margaret Chipman recently met with a group of Vandals at Ruszoni’s in Weiser to discuss the process of forming a Vandal Booster Chapter. The West Treasure Valley Vandal Boosters would be composed of the Weiser area, Ontario, Payette, Fruitland, Cambridge, and Midvale areas.
Right now, the group is in the beginning stages of forming an organization by creating their bylaws and setting up an account for fundraising. Chipman shared that there are a lot of Vandals in this area, and they want to be able to raise money to support Vandal student athletes in the future. The tentative plan is to meet once per month and possibly more once the ball is rolling to plan fundraisers and recruit more volunteers. They hope to organize a fundraiser dinner and auction this coming summer.
Chipman also shared that she is grateful to Nick Reed, owner of Ruszoni’s, for all his help and providing a space for hosting meetings. The group would like to spread the word about what they plan to do and promote fundraising for future Vandal student athletes.
If you or someone you know is interested in contributing to the cause, please email Margaret Chipman at firstname.lastname@example.org (note the plural spelling change).
