My name is Joe Woods and I am the Head Boys Volleyball Coach at Fillmore High School. For our upcoming season, budget cuts in our schools make it difficult for our program to operate. Many schools in our county are spending $5,000-$10,000 and some even more, on a yearly basis for boys volleyball. We know we cannot compete with those numbers year in and year out. However, it is extremely important that our players feel like they are just as important as the athletes at these other schools. I believe in providing our athletes with the best safety equipment and uniforms. I want our athletes to feel good about who they are and where they come from. Because this is a new athletic program at FHS, this program represents a large financial commitment. Therefore, I am extending this invitation for as a community to join-in and support our Boys Volleyball Program for the 2009 season.

During these hard economic times any contribution would help. I’m not asking that anyone do anything outside their comfort zone, as I know many families are struggling. If you would be interested in supporting our program please mail any monetary contributions to “Fillmore HS Boys Volleyball” to 555 Central Ave. “Attn: Coach Woods.” If you need more information please call me at 805-794-7439. On behalf of our players and our entire boys volleyball program we thank you for your time, your consideration and your generous support.

Thank you,
Coach Woods

My name is Jose Luis Lomelí and I am the new Head Baseball Coach at Fillmore High School. I am extremely honored and privileged to take over a program with such a rich baseball tradition. Fillmore has won 22 league titles, four CIF titles and countless Junior Varsity championships. I understand what it means to wear a Flashes’ uniform having been a member of three league championship teams during the early 1990’s. I am looking forward to carrying on this proud tradition at my alma mater. The success of our program on the field throughout the years has been a joint effort with our local community; together we’ve been a great team!

Budget cuts in our schools make it difficult for our program to operate. Many schools in our county are spending $10,000-$15,000 and some even more, on a yearly basis for baseball. We know we cannot compete with those numbers year in and year out. However, it is extremely important that our players feel like they are just as important as the athletes at these other schools. I believe in providing our athletes with the best safety equipment and uniforms. I want our athletes to feel good about who they are and where they come from. This year we will be renovating our entire uniform supply and begin making much-needed field improvements prior to the start of the 2009 season. This represents a large financial commitment. Therefore, I am extending this invitation for your organization to join our sign sponsorship program for the 2009 baseball season.

One of our fund raising projects is to offer our community businesses the opportunity to help sponsor us by purchasing a sign advertisement. The sign will be professionally made and will be 3’x 6’ in vinyl and will feature your business logo and information. The sign will be hung up at our varsity field for the entire baseball season, which runs from March through June. Your sign will be seen by everyone in attendance at our games, including anybody driving by our field. We have three plans available: CONTINUED »
