Dear Eagle Family,
Well, we just put the finishing touches on the 30th Orland Killin Dinner, Dance and Auction. It was a tremendous turnout of support for Eastern Athletics and thank you to everyone that attended, supported and donated to the cause. A special thank you to a number of folks on our staff who did a tremendous job making this happen – Judy Crabb, Kyle Hoob, Davin Perry, Brenda Howe, Kara Pein and Don Ross, as well as all others on our staff and a number of our student-athletes who helped set up and break down. The 2012 Killin weekend is tentatively scheduled for April 28th so mark your calendars now!!
EAA FUND DRIVE - Our annual EAA Fund Drive is off to a GREAT start but we need to finish strong. As you know we are looking to eclipse the 1000-member mark. So if you are on board already – thank you!! And if you know someone who is not and should be – please help us get them on board. Should you have questions, please contact Krysta Plato at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As you know, these funds are critical to the success of our department and we look forward to many new members in 2011.
