Raffle Calendars

Fundraising this year will be selling our raffle calendars. The Money giveaway starts the first day of the practice season so it is good to start selling the calendars early. They are now available at Homer Medical if you want to get them in packs of 10. I expect ( depending on player turnout) that we will be aiming for each player selling 25-30 of the calendars. If your parents want to sell them at place of business that can be arranged also. There is a 1:10 chance of winning money and the average return will be over three times what they pay for the calendar.

"Happiness and freedom begin with a clear understanding of one principle: Some things are within our control, and some things are not. It is only after you have faced up to this fundamental rule and learned to distinguish between what you can and can't control that inner tranquility and outer-effectiveness become possible."
-- Epictetus.
