Amity Soccer Support Needed! THANK YOU!
Aidan Dunion is an outgoing and extremely loving 3 year old boy who has just been faced with a fierce battle. DIPG accounts for 10-15 percent of all childhood central nervous system tumors. Currently there are no causes and NO known cure for DIPG. However, Aidan and his army are ready to fight this beast. If you would like to join Aidan's Army we ask that you help support him and be a part of his army. Together, Aidan's Army will win this battle.

BOARD POSITIONS OPEN
There are opportunities available for motivated individuals to help the Amity AC Soccer club. There will be three board members who will not be returning after December 31, 2013 so the following three positions are open. In addition, we would like to fill the vacant soccer treasurer position that has been done on an interim basis by the club treasurer. If you are interested, please contact Amity AC Soccer Commissioner Mark Reightneour immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org to see what these positions entail.
Recreational league coordinator
Treasurer---(some financial background preferred)
These are all very important positions within the club and we have the next 3+ months to fill them. It would be good if we could find members now who can work under the current board-members in those positions to learn so there is not a great deal of headaches at the transition period. If you are interested or know anyone, please let us know. The club cannot continue to function without these positions being filled.
A personal note from current Commissioner Mark Reightneour,
“I want to thank the entire Amity AC soccer club membership for a great two years as commissioner and 4.5 years on the board---this is a great club with great people and a lot of really good things going on. Financially, we are solid and our membership numbers remain strong. We need a few parents and coaches from the next generation to step up and fill these board spots and keep the momentum going. Please do not "assume" that someone else will do it or it will get done by someone....that is not always the case. The amount of work that goes into running this club is tremendous but the current board as a whole is a great and hardworking group, and make it look easy in most cases. However, I was around at times when things were not as rosy, and the board was not as unified and hard-working. At a club this size, things left undone can turn poorly very quickly without good people in place--I have seen it occur personally. Please, if you have some time (it does not take as much as you would expect), and think you can make a difference in this club, contact me and we can talk about the open positions.”
Thank you again to everyone for supporting me these past years. I will see you on the pitch…..Mark.
