Congratulations to our 2009 - 2010 Officers and Committee Chairs that were elected last Saturday. Elections were quick, as none of the nominees faced opposition, and all positions were filled. The quick elections allowed us to do a little brainstorming and planning for next season. We also were happy to welcome our newest honorary member, Joel Siegman, Manager of Fan Development for the Columbus Blue Jackets. It was a pleasure for everyone there to have the opportunity to exchange ideas with Joel for next year's events. Thank you to all who attended and enjoyed the fabulous free lunch! We are now seeking volunteers for each committee for the upcoming season. To sign up, please email the committee chair that heads the committee you wish to help with by clicking on their name below, or head to our contacts page under the About Us tab on the website above.
The Columbus Blue Jackets have donated a Team Signed Stick for us to give to one lucky member at Saturday's Elections.
Now there is even more reason to join us this Saturday. If you are planning on attending, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday so that we can order the proper amount of food for lunch.
Lunch begins at noon with the Elections beginning at about 1:00 Click here for more details.
Jacket Backers make $1,015 donation to the Columbus Blue Jackets Foundation
Friday night is the opening round of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft and there will be all kinds of activities going on in Nationwide Arena and the Arena District.
During the Blue Jackets Draft Party the Jacket Backers will be presenting the Columbus Blue Jackets Foundation a check for $1,015. The donation will be made to sponsor a hole at the Golf Classic in memory of Ryan Salmons. The presentation is tentatively scheduled to happen at about 5:30. If you are at the draft party, be sure to watch for the presentation. Thank you to all of our members and fans that helped the Jacket Backers raise this donation.
In addition, the Jacket Backers will have a table on the floor of the arena near section 108. Stop by to ask any questions you may have, find out more information about the club, renew your membership or pick up your 2009 - 2010 membership card.
Did you know that the Jacket Backers encourage and accept donations to local food pantries at all of our events?
Sometimes this gets lost in the excitement of cheering on our team. But the Jacket Backers are dedicated to helping our community. That is why we accept food donations at all of our events and share them with various food pantries in the area. A frequent question that comes up is, "What exactly should we donate?" Follow this link to the Mid Ohio Food Bank's Grocery List for the answer.
So, if you have the ability, bring a donation to our next event and:
Help the Jacket Backers Help Others!
Your participation is encouraged and appreciated. Please send any general questions or comments to email@example.com. If you have any questions for a specific officer or committee chair, a list of contacts can be found at www.jacketbackers.org/contacts.
