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.

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.
