The North Star Wolves Football Booster Club is staying busy with upcoming events.


The booster club is hosting a pasta dinner June 22 at Shooter’s Roadhouse and a cornhole tournament at the Columbian Club Hall in McGregor June 28. Ken Greason, president of the booster club, said everyone is welcome to the pasta dinner and credited Shooters and owner Matt Kelly for their assistance.

“Shooters is helping us out quite a bit with this,” he said.


Tickets for the dinner, which organizers hope see a lot of program alumni support, are $20. Greason said doors will open at 6:30 p.m. and food will start being served at 7 p.m.


The cornhole tournament is accepting registrations with prizes to be awarded. Bags fly at 6 p.m. and the cost for that is $50 per team of two. There will be a 50/50 draw and raffle that evening as well and all skill levels are welcome.


The North Star Football Booster Club founded late last year after their football season had originally been in jeopardy. The team regrouped from early adversity and went on to win their bowl game.


“It’s a group of parents that got together to make sure our kids can play football,” added Lisa Greason, who is also part of the club’s executive.


Parents stepped up and helped found the booster club and plan on continuing to help keep the program moving forward. She added they recently received official status as a not-for-profit organization and will be able to issue tax receipts soon.


Previous fundraisers have included a fish fry at the Columbus Community Hall and popcorn sales.


“The community has been phenomenal,” said Lisa. “We were amazed at the community support we had. The community has really stepped up for our team.”Proceeds from their fundraisers go back into the program, with plans being for such things as new jerseys, new equipment and to sponsor players that might not be able to afford to play football.


The Greasons helped with the football team all season but credited other parents for helping out as well.


“We’ve been having a blast getting to know the team and coaches,” said Lisa.

“When you have a good core group of kids and coaches, it’s easy,” added Ken.


The team is also hosting a spring camp for both returning and new players. The camp runs May 28-30 and June 4-5 at H. Murray Smith Centennial Park with the returning players being from 3-4 p.m. and incoming players coming into Grade 9 being from 4-5 p.m.
