Friends of Glax would like to welcome Randy Thomas as our new booster treasurer for girls lacrosse.  Randy will be taking over the position for Ed Dietrich who served as treasurer for the past three years.  We also say goodbye to his wife Jean who served as secretary.  We appreciate your dedication, time and service you gave to our program and always trying to make it better!  We will miss you both.

If any parent in our program has an interest in the secretary position for 2015-16 please contact me.  The duties include, taking meeting minutes, posting meeting minutes and some general board duties.  We meet monthly beginning in January through May with one organizational meeting in the fall.  It’s a great way to get involved with girls lacrosse!
