With an annual budget of $20,000, the mission of the St. Maries Lumberjacks Booster Club is to enhance the high school sports program.

“We’re just here to help with the extra stuff the school cannot afford,” President Lynn Masterson said.

The Lumberjack Booster Club officers including Dennis Humphrey Kasey Borgman, Lynn Masterson and Brian McGregor pose with the mural that was painted on the back of the building that houses the concession and announcer stand at the St. Maries High School football field. This is just one project the group has tackled for the 2015-2016 school year. The mural was done by Jeremy Deming and his assistant Scott Lakey of Jerms Design. Other projects the group has tackled this year included buying new uniforms for the volleyball, football and girls basketball teams.

During the 2014-15 school year, the club continued its tradition of barbecuing at all home football games, helped with the homecoming tailgate party, sponsored senior nights and provided financial support to all the teams that earned a state berth. The club also hosted three sports award nights in conjunction with the high school.

Several other projects included buying a scoreboard for the gym, purchasing wrestling uniforms, new track equipment, new golf uniforms and funding two $500 scholarships to St. Maries athletes. A new iPad was purchased for the softball team to help in training and keeping stats. The club assisted in sending 10 coaches to a clinic in Seattle and paid for the HUDL program, which is used by football and basketball coaches.

“The HUDL program is software that allows coaches to take the film from a game and break it down play by play,” Mrs. Masterson said. “It also allows kids to make highlight films if they are pursuing a college.”

Mrs. Masterson said at the 2014 banquet around $20,000 was also raised to support sports programs for the 2015-16 school year.

“It couldn’t have been done without the generous support of our parents, community members, businesses and coaches and staff of St. Maries High School,” she added.

The club is in the process of updating its member log and seeks new members. Various sponsorship types are available: $25 for family or alumni; $50 for businesses; and $100 for century. Memberships run from Sept. 1 through Aug. 31. The club also needs help with its various activities throughout the year.

“The more volunteers the club has, the more we are able to provide for our high school programs,” Mrs. Masterson said.

Monthly meetings are at 6 p.m. the first Wednesday of every month at the St. Maries Fire Station. This year’s Hall of Fame Banquet will be Oct. 16. Those who buy a sponsorship can get advanced tickets to the banquet at a discounted rate of $30 for two tickets, a savings of $10.

Other elected officers for the club include Dennis Humphrey, vice president; Brian McGregor, treasurer; and Kasey Borgmann, secretary.
