The annual RBHS Booster Club Golf Outing is Friday, June 20th at Carriage Greens Country Club in Darien. We are trying to break our record turn out last year of 29 foursomes – our goal this year is 36!  Please get your friends and family together and enter a foursome for golf and have friends meet you after to attend the dinner and auction.  It is a great fundraiser for the athletes of RB!

For those Booster members who cannot volunteer during the year, this is a great way to contribute and support RBHS athletics. In addition, if you can’t golf – you can still support the cause by purchasing raffle tickets, sponsoring the outing as described on the attached registration, or provide a raffle prize!

Download the registration form or you can find it on the RBHS website and Booster Facebook. Please get your registration form in as soon as possible and hope to see you on the 20th!

PTO Treasurer Looking for Volunteers and Receipt Reminder

Posted May 29, 2014 | Category: News

This information was originally posted on May 29, 2014. Please note that the article refers to events from a previous school year.

reminderReceipts: If you have any receipts you need to be reimbursed for or checks to deposit into the PTO account, please get these to Jane Wilhelm, the PTO treasurer, before June 12.  The PTO’s fiscal year ends soon after that, and anything that carries over into the next school year will NOT be reimbursed.

Volunteers:

  • We need one more person to be on the annual PTO audit committee.  This involves spending 2-3 hours over the summer reviewing the treasurer’s data:  verifying the numbers, ensuring accuracy, assessing procedures, and issuing a report.  No accounting background necessary.  Please contact Jane Wilhelm if interested.
  • We need two more people to serve on the budget committee for the next school year.  This involves spending a couple of hours with other PTO members over the summer to develop the budget for the 2014-2015 school year.  Please contact Jane Wilhelm if interested.
