Boosters clash over sales


Tonawanda News — The board discussed a number of options, including a meeting between all the district’s booster clubs a few weeks before the start of the season in order to flesh out who will be selling what and where. The football booster and cheerleading booster groups could also alternate selling the concessions, a board member suggested. 

At the end of the discussion, the board directed district attorney Chris Trapp to research fundraising policies and come up with a possible draft to discuss at the next meeting. 

But board member Diane Misner said she is worried about etching a policy in stone that must be followed.

“I think this may be something that the two groups need to get together and work out themselves,” she said.

Zdrojewski agreed.

“Something similar happened between the two groups a few years ago,” he said. “New people get involved, a few toes get stepped on incidentally ... this is something that the parties need to get together and resolve.”
