Booster Club donation

CAMBRIDGE, N.Y. -- The Cambridge Tribesmen Booster Club, a volunteer group comprised of parents and athletes alike, has donated a new, backlit scorer's table to be used in the CCS high school gymnasium. This new table replaces the black-painted plywood boxes that formerly served as a scorer's table.

The Booster Club was able to provide this much needed upgrade with funds raised through the snack bar, which they offer at all Varsity games for Fall and Winter sports, as well as Saturday morning basketball games. The volunteers raised the $3,300 necessary to achieve this goal.

A separate donation of $4153 has provided 36 new padded chairs and a storage rack to be used during volleyball, basketball and wrestling games and matches. Each padded chair, with the Cambridge Indian logo, complements the newly renovated gym.

Parent and student volunteers in the Booster Club will continue striving to make a difference in the Sports Department at CCS, and new volunteers are always welcome.
