Boost the Buccs at Chipotle today
Hopefully, as you read this today, Monday, Aug. 3, you have not yet eaten your dinner. If would like to enjoy a delicious supper tonight, and support a good Covington cause, please keep reading.
Tonight from 6-9 p.m., please join many Covington Buccaneer fans, athletes, and community members at Chipotle, 1934 W. Main St., Troy, to eat in support our Bucc athletes. You support the Buccs by showing the Chipotle/Bucc Booster flyer, either on paper or your smart phone, or just mentioning to the cashier that you are dining tonight to support the Bucc Boosters. Fifty percent … yes, 50 percent, of your purchase price will be donated to the Boosters, to support our Covington student-athletes. Chipotle is extremely generous in donating this high of a portion of the proceeds, so please, if you are able, join many others at Chipotle tonight. The Bucc Boosters will have many expenses as the students move into the new school, athletic items that are not paid for in the funds for the new school construction. The Covington Bucc Boosters thank you for your support. And if you are propping up your feet in the recliner, perusing this edition of the Piqua Daily Call on Monday evening, after a long day on the job with dinner already completed, there may still be time to run over to Troy and stock up on Chipotle takeout for lunches this week!
The 27th annual Dick Minnich Charity Golf Classic is also fast approaching. It will be held Tuesday, Aug. 11 at Shelby Oaks Golf Course near Sidney. This tournament has raised over $100,000 in its 26-year history for various programs benefitting the youth of Covington, including the Covington High School Scholarship Fund, formerly “Dollars for Scholars,” as well as the Parents Learning to Understand Students (P.L.U.S.) organization. It is put on in memory of former Covington Fire Chief, Mr. Dick Minnich.
The Classic will tee off with an 11 a.m. shotgun start, and each golfer is automatically entered to win numerous door prizes, including a set of golf clubs valued at $1,000. The deadline for entry is today, Aug. 3, but hopefully you can still sneak your team in on Tuesday or so. Anyone interested in playing in one of the area’s longest running golf scrambles should contact Chairman Andy Johnson at [email protected] But since Andy’s on his honeymoon this week, I’m guessing his sister Ashley is answering the email as of now. Congratulations, by the way, to Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Johnson on their nuptials Saturday.
