SCOTCH PLAINS-FANWOOD, NJ – When the Scotch Plains-Fanwood High School Athletic Booster Club was nearly abolished after the 2014-15 school year, Matt Tibbals felt the need to step in and remind the school of all the good it has done in the past.

“The previous members of the booster club did a phenomenal job, and we needed new membership,” Tibbals, the new President of the club, said. “I felt it was something I’ve wanted to do, being a part of the SPFBL board for years and involved with youth athletics for years.”

Tibbals, along with Dave Merkel (VP) and Jodi Traina (Treasurer), will join Portia Hood-Marshall (Secretary) as members of the SPFHS Athletic Booster Club board.

The SPFHS Athletic Booster Club is primarily made up of parents and guardians of both past and present and future SPFHS student athletes, but is always seeking new members.

With a brand new website, the SPF Athletic Booster Club allows people to sign up online, view team schedules with ease, purchase photos from SmugMug, and purchase Raiders sports-specific

One of the club’s many goals is to reach 50 percent membership from all athletic families.

“Every sport has a freshmen, junior varsity, and varisty team, so there’s 23 teams we’re reaching out to,” Tibbals said. “Our goal is to have one parent from each team be a part of the Booster Club.”

The Athletic Booster Club raises funds to provide six scholarships to students, host banquets, and purchase plaques, varsity letters, awards, make improvements to the athletic facilities.

This year, the Booster Club will have a Super 50/50 on Friday, Nov. 13 at Scotch Hills, a Quarter Dip/Dine and Dash in January, and a Casino Night during the winter sports season.

To join the SPFHS Athletic Booster Club, visit the membership page on the new website, or contact Matt Tibbals at athleticboostersspfhs@gmail.com.

Sinai or Sanctuary?

 

 

And in the beginning, G‑d was homeless, and so G‑d asked His people to set Him up with some digs. Where does it say that? Well, nowhere, actually. But it does say that G‑d instructed Moses to tell the people, “They shall make for Me a Sanctuary, that I may dwell among them.”

Now the question is, was G‑d really homeless? ...
