Dear Friend, Neighbor and Community Member:
The Grafton High School Football Team of 2012 brought pride to the Town when they won the Division IV Central Mass Super Bowl this year. The last Super Bowl win dates back to 1986. To honor our Super Bowl champions, donations are being sought from community members, to help the team celebrate their big win after 26 years.
In true Super Bowl fashion, Grafton can show their pride and give congratulations to our football team by making contributions toward their banquet and purchase of memorabilia that will remain with each player for a lifetime. Donations of all amounts are being accepted; receipt of your contribution by January 15, 2013 would be appreciated. Your generosity will be acknowledged in the keepsake program from the team’s celebratory banquet.
Please complete the coupon below and send your tax deductible contribution (cash or check only) to Coach Chris McMahon, Grafton High School, 30 Providence Road, Grafton, MA 01519. Make checks payable to Grafton High School Football.
