November Newsletter

We'd like to thank you all for a great turn-out at the Halloween Skate Party. We had about one hundred skaters in costume and lots of goodies and so much fun! Look for the pictures on our webpage and on Facebook.

We are looking forward to our Annual Show on December 14th at 4:00 PM.  Please promote this as much as you can since this is a fundraiser for our club. You can click on the flyer below for one that you can print out, or you can link to the one on our website to promote the show.
You might notice that we've made a few changes to the Annual Show flyer. The date, place, and time are the same; however, the ticket prices have changed. The price will be $10 for everyone except children ages 5 and under. We will still be holding a toy drive, but we have added the words "worth $10 or more" to the instructions to bring a toy for a child's ticket. If you have sent out or put up the previous flyer, please replace it with this one. You can click on it to download a clickable word document. The pdf file is also available on our website at www.fefsc.org
As you can imagine, a show with this many people skating in it needs volunteers! We've tried to make it easier for you to sign up this year by using VolunteerSpot. VolunteerSpot is a free service that allows us to put in exactly what we need and when we need it, generate a sign up sheet (and some buttons and links and invitations), and keep all of the volunteer efforts organized. You may be wondering just what kinds of things we need donated or what needs to be done. There are too many to list in this newsletter; however, you will find all of the spots to sign up for volunteering your time, as well as donations of props and raffle basket items by clicking on the VolunteerSpot link below. The dates are spread out throughout the month of December, so be sure to check all of them. We are trying to make it easy on you by asking you to click on the link below and sign up where-ever you think you can help. The link will also be on our website and our facebook page. If you have any problems signing up, or have any questions, please contact us at volunteercoordinator@fefsc.org.

Our club members will have the opportunity to skate during the second intermission of the Florida Everblades vs Indianapolis Fuel hockey game on Friday, December 12th. The game starts at 7:30. Parents must buy a ticket to get in to the game. We do have a specially priced ticket that gives back to the club, if ordered by December 11th. You must order by using this form. We will be putting this form out on our facebook page and website as well, so please share with your friends and co-workers!

If your skater plans to participate in the intermission, it is mandatory that they be at the December 6th, 8:00 AM rehearsal session.

We will also be selling tickets for the Annual Show during this game. We need some volunteers to do that. You can sign up on VolunteerSpot to be a ticket seller during the hockey game.
We are pleased to announce that we now have a Sponsors Page on our website! With the addition of this page comes the ability to ask for donations from professionals, businesses, and individuals to our club in exchange for recognition on our website. You can find the Sponsor Page by clicking here, or by going to the website at www.fefsc.org and clicking on Sponsors. Please check it out often, and patronize the businesses and professionals who do so generously donate their funds to us.

The sponsorship levels for professionals and businesses are shown in a chart on the Sponsorship Page. The levels for individuals are on the Friends of FEFSC Page. All donations can be made by going to the Donations Page.
Our club also now has its own CafePress Store! The FEFSC Logo is on apparel, drinkware, jewelry, pet items, and more. All of the proceeds are returned to us, so when you buy something from this store with our Logo on it, you are supporting the club. The link is located on our webpage on the FEFSC Store page and we will be sending it out on facebook and twitter; however, for your convenience, we've also included it below. Happy shopping!
