                          The Athletic Boosters 
                          Helen Kirch - Sec. 
      The Athletic Boosters is a new club started in 1976. The 
 purpose of the club is to back all sports of Barneveld, and let the 
 kids know they are being backed. 
      The officers are: President - Leo Clerkin 
                         Vice President - Art Kirch 
                         Secretary - Helen Kirch 
                         Treasurer - Beulah Manteuful 
      The President's job is to conduct the meetings. The Vice 
 President conducts meetings if the President is absent. The 
-Secretary takes minutes of the meetings and advertises for upcoming 
events. The Treasurer keeps records of the money. 
      Among the things the club has done is running a concession 
 stand at Cave of the Mounds over the last Halloween weekend. The 
 money they raised paid for wrestling ribbons for the tournament the 
 grade school had. They also sold concessions at High School 
 Wrestling Matches. 
      The Athletic Boosters has seventy-four members. To be a member 
 you must be 18 years old and have purchased a sweater for $6.50. 
 One of the main qualifications is to be a good sports booster and 
 set a good example for students. 
      The Athletic Boosters have many activities planned for the future.
 They are planning to sponsor a bus to go to the Brewers' Baseball game 
 May 15. They are going to have an Ice Cream Social in August and 
 Art Kirch is donating 1/2 a beef to auction off, using the money for 
 the Wrestling Fund. 
      The Boosters have given $100.00 to the Wrestling Fund, and also 
 have voted in favor of keeping a youth center. 
      The Athletic Boosters have fulfilled the purpose of backing 
 the Barneveld Sports Program. We hope it will continue in the future.
