Letter: A thank you to everyone who helped the Kaneland football team

By on December 16, 2010

It has been a tradition to “feed the varsity football team” before each game for many years.

This year was no different. Thank you to all the senior parents who so eagerly signed up for each regular season week. During the postseason, we would like to thank the football coaches and all the varsity parents who helped out with food, drinks and desserts for the dinners.

A special thanks goes out to Elburn and Sugar Grove businesses for their contributions as well—Elburn Lions Club, Fireside Grille, Harner’s Bakery, Restaurant, & Catering, Open Range Grill, Papa G’s, Ream’s Elburn Market, Scarpacci’s Pizza, Schmidt’s and also the Kaneland boys basketball team.

Another special thank you to Mrs. Glad, who delivered “championship cookies” to the team for many weeks as well.

We would also like to thank Joe Kovalick of Ben’s Giant Pumpkins for carving a huge pumpkin with the Northern Big 12 East Conference Champions logo on it and bringing the pumpkin to all the postseason games.

A thank you also goes out to the cheerleaders for their support during the season and for decorating many store windows in support of the team. Thank you to the businesses for allowing them the opportunity to decorate.

A thank you to the Sports Boosters for the wonderful atmosphere at Bruce Peterson Field, and for their support of the team by providing buses for the players, cheerleaders and students to attend the Vernon Hills game.

Lastly, we would like to extend our appreciation and thanks to the entire Kaneland School District, high school band, “rowdies” and community for their support, awesome game attendance and well wishes during this great season. Go Knights!
