With fall sports winding down and winter sports programs ramping-up, Ontario Christian continues to have fun, exciting and competitive athletic programs. We can enjoy watching these young athletes develop, as their positive role model Christian coaches lead the way. If you’re a fan, please come out and support Ontario Christian’s athletic programs. It will be fun.
The Ontario Christian Athletic Boosters Club continues to work behind the scenes. When this edition of Knightline comes out, our Christmas tree sale program will be in full operation. Go to the school office to buy a $45.00 voucher to be used toward the purchase of a beautiful fresh Oregon-grown Christmas tree at the Premier Christmas Tree lot on the corner of Edison and Central Avenue, in Chino. In doing so, $15.00 of your voucher will go toward OC athletics. If you purchase a tree at the lot, $10.00 will go toward OC. So please buy your Christmas tree this year and support OC.
We would like to thank all those who supported our club through advertising in the Athletic Program or the OC school directory. This money goes directly toward a project to enhance the athletic program at our school.
On Labor Day we served 760 breakfasts to our OC community and made about $4,500. Some of this money supports our cheerleading and majorette programs, that is why you saw these girls working so hard at our breakfast. Please remember, every Labor Day we host that breakfast, so plan now to attend next year’s Pancake Breakfast and run in the 5K race with Mr. Jon Schaap.
Also, on June 3, 2016, our club will be hosting the 23rd Annual Boosters Club Golf Tournament. Mark that date and talk to your friends and associates to form your teams. We need golfers, sponsors, and donors. With the help of OC’s golf coach, Mr. Kevin Knutson, our Golf Classic has grown for the last three years. In 2015, 192 golfers participated. The more golfers, the more fun we have, so plan now to help us grow.
Finally, we’d love to have you join us! We meet once a month, usually on the 4thMonday, in the OCHS library. If you love Ontario Christian, enjoy athletics, and want to watch young men and women develop as athletes, why not support the programs they belong to?
