If you would like to sell items, you may either arrange drop-off in advance with Joann Leffert or Tammi Joseph by e-mailing her at tjoseph@goddardusd.com. Tammi will be at the rink between approximately 4-6 each evening this week but arrangements should be made with her directly. Joann will be there tonight until 6:00, Tuesday until 5:45, Wednesday until 6:00 and Friday until at least 6:00. OR you may bring your item on the morning of the skate swap.
All items for sale MUST be labeled. For each item you are selling please attach an envelope with a safety pin. On the envelope, write your name, phone number, and the amount you want for the item.
Volunteers from the Wichita Figure Skating Club will be assisting with running the skate swap, setting up, and tearing down. A big thank you to those who have offered help!

Dillons Fundraiser

Hello WFSC members,

We have two messages regarding the Dillons Fundraiser. The first is a reminder about the funds you raised during the 4th quarter of 2015. Scroll down to read the second, which is an important “re-enrollment update from Dillons. If you are not currently enrolled in the DillonsFundraiser and shop at Dillons, it is an easy way to earn funds to support your skater and skating in Wichita. The enrollment is fast and, dare I say, painless.
Thank you!
Anne Dewvall
WFSC Secretary
