Buy a brick from Windham-Raymond Athletic Boosters and preserve Eagle Pride!

The Windham-Raymond Athletic Boosters introduces their new “Preserve Eagle Pride” Engrave-a-Brick Program. This is a fundraising effort that offers individuals an opportunity to purchase a personalized, engraved brick that will be permanently and prominently displayed on the Windham High School (WHS) campus. The exact location for the bricks to be displayed on campus grounds has yet to be determined. The purchase will not only become a permanent part of the WHS grounds but it will help support Windham student athletes.

The Windham-Raymond Athletic Boosters is a group made up of parents and community. This group works hard to raise funds to support the athletic program, in efforts that are beyond what is available in the athletic director’s budget.

So far, for the 2016-17 school year, the Boosters have provided funds that include:  Hotel rooms for the cross country runners who advanced to the New England meet in Rhode Island/Swim jackets for the WHS swim team/Practice time for the indoor track team at the University of Southern Maine/Senior flowers for fall senior athletes and luncheons for all fall teams that advanced to state competitions. In addition, the Boosters have provided $11,000 in enrichment funds to WHS fall and winter teams. Those funds can be used at the coaches' discretion (with more enrichments to be disbursed in the spring and summer; each fall, winter and spring team receives a $500 stipend and all teams receive $250 for summer activities).

The Athletic Boosters run two large fundraising events annually:  The Windham Auto Show and the Windham Holiday Craft Fair. Other funding comes from donations and profits of the popular Windham High School Eagle's Nest Concession Stand. The “Preserve Eagle Pride” Engrave-a- Brick Program is their latest fundraising effort.
Current and former students, players, friends, families, parents, administrators and community leaders are invited to help pave the way to a successful Windham-Raymond Athletic Boosters’ achievement by purchasing a brick. When ordering a brick, one can honor their child or family member, recognize a graduation, remember a loved one or advertise a business.
An individual or business can customize their own brick with a personal message to include important dates and milestones.

The cost for each 4” x 8” brick is $50. Each brick can contain up to the maximum of 3 lines, with up to 18 characters per line (spaces & hyphens are considered characters). The deadline to order an engraved brick is March 1, 2017.
