Pies and Baked Potatoes

The two biggest fundraisers for the Mohawk Music Association are coming up on Columbus Day weekend. Usually they are on separate weekends, but this year they will be on the same weekend.

We need your help.

Apple pie
Friday, October 11th is the Pie Sale at the Booster Day football game at Mohawk. We are in need of folks to bake and donate pies for this Pie Sale. We also need a few people who can help at the table cutting pies and waiting on customers. If your students are available, they are welcome to help, too. Those students who have helped in the past have enjoyed taking slices of pie into the stands and selling them. Plan to drop your pies off and stay to watch the parade floats arrive and hang around for the football game (7:00 pm vs. Franklin County Technical School Eagles) and support Mohawk Athletics at the same time. Mohawk Warriors Band will be performing in the Parade, and Rock Band will be performing at the Booster Day Game. If you can help in any way with this Pie Sale, please contact Cathy Purington.

MMA's Baked Potato Booth
Saturday, October 12th and Sunday, October 13th is the Baked Potato Booth at the Ashfield Fall Festival. We are in need of folks to bake potatoes and bring them to Ashfield at the time you sign up for and we also need folks to sign up to work a 2 or 3 hour shift at the booth. Come a little before your shift or stay a little after and enjoy the festival's crafts and music, too. Mohawk's Select Chorus will perform at 4:30 pm on Sunday. If you can help in any way with this Baked Potato Both, please contact me, Sherry Taylor - or 834-3112. [Download Potato Bakers Needed poster.]

Watch your student's backpack for a flyer with additional information about both of these events. We hope we will hear from you.

Come meet other MMA members, help out and have some fun in the mix. Evey pie, every pie server, every baked potato baker and every baked potato server helps to make it a little easier to make these events a success. Won't you give us a little of your time or talent to help this worthy cause? Thank you for your consideration.


p.s.  The next meeting of the Mohawk Music Association is scheduled for Tuesday, October 8 at 6:30 pm in the Mohawk school library. We hope to see you there!
