MHS FUNDRAISER û
Baseball players from Montgomery High School will offer their services to local residents and businesses for leaf raking and other odd jobs. The proceeds from a donation of $10 per player per hour will be dedicated to improve Montgomery’s baseball facilities.
This program, which is entitled “Leaf the Raking To Us,” is being organized by the Diamond Club, the fundraising booster organization that supports MHS baseball. In recent years, the Club has successfully made many facility improvements including replacement of the backstop, infield dirt, and outfield fence at the varsity field; construction of new batting cages; and repair or older batting cages.
The overall goal is to increase involvement by the players while providing a valuable service to the community. The players will come equipped with rakes. Homeowners need only supply the leaf bags, a smile and, of course, a donation.
Further information and electronic sign up are available at www.mhscougarbaseball.com or by calling (917) 886-6444. 
