Pie Sale at Booster Day Football Game

The Mohawk Music Association's annual Booster Day pie sale will be happening at the evening football game at Mohawk on Friday, 10/28/11. We need people to bake pies -- any kind you'd like to make. And people to help sell them from our booth or by walking through the stands.

As usual, we'll be set up in a tent just inside the entrance to the football field, selling whole pies and slices of pie. Please let us know if you can bake and/or help out with selling at the tent or in the bleachers. More helpers means shorter work shifts and that can make all the difference on a chilly evening.

Pies can be delivered to the tent at the football game -- either right before the game (7pm) or an hour or so earlier. Since there's no school that day, bringing or sending them into school in the morning isn't possible this year. Let us know if you will have difficulty getting the pies there. If you use your own non-disposable/recyclable pie plates, you'll be responsible for getting them back.

Music notes:  The Mohawk Marching Band and Colorguard will perform in the Booster Day Parade and on the field during halftime.

Game notes: The Mohawk Warriors will be playing the Turners Falls Indians in Mohawk's 45th Annual Booster Day football game. As of Wednesday, October 19 both teams have two wins and two losses in Intercounty League matchups and are playing for wins to qualify for a post-season game. It should be a great game starting at 7pm under the lights at Pollard Field.

Baked Potato Booth at the Ashfield Fall Festival

Great weather is predicted for this weekend and we're looking forward to a crowd of hungry festival-goers singing their praises of the Mohawk Music Association's famous Baked Potato with Toppings. Kevin Hollister's delicious Taco Potato, which made its debut at last year's Festival, will be served again this year. Topped with taco-seasoned ground turkey, shredded cheese, salsa and sour cream, it is a spud-lover's delight. There will also be other yummy toppings to choose from: butter, broccoli, sour cream, yogurt, shredded cheese, and bacon.

Our Baked Potato tent will be set up at the Ashfield Fall Festival on the Town Common, between the Fire House and the large Craft Tent. We hope to see you there. Bring your appetite!

Workers Needed for our Baked Potato Fundraiser

Our annual baked potato fundraiser will be happening at the Ashfield Fall Festival this weekend, October 8 and 9. This is usually our biggest fundraiser of the year and we need a lot of help to make it a success.

Potato bakers - Kevin will be distributing 40 pound boxes of potatoes tonight at the Music Association meeting. If you can't be there tonight please contact us and we will make other arrangements to get the potatoes to you. The potatoes need to be washed, wrapped in foil, and baked for about two hours (detailed instructions are included in each box of spuds). Deliver the hot potatoes to our booth on the Town Common in Ashfield at your scheduled time. We still need potatoes for the following time slots: Saturday at 1 pm and 3 pm, Sunday at 2 pm and 3 pm, and more during the lunch rush (11 am - 1 pm) on both days.

Potato sales - Working at the booth on the Town Common in Ashfield: taking orders and adding the toppings, set-up, clean-up, "runners" to bring the potatoes from the parking areas to the booth. We need at least two more workers on Sunday from 9:45 am - 1 pm and at least 1 more on Sunday from 2 pm to 5 pm.

Please come to the meeting tonight and find out how you can help!
