Foundation grant helps Cloverdale start JV winter guard program

Thursday, October 18, 2018

CLOVERDALE -- October will be the official start to the new junior varsity (JV) winter guard program in Cloverdale.

That would not be possible if it were not for the generous grant extended the group by the Sherman and Maria Fund of the Putnam County Community Foundation. It is a donor-advised fund and recommendations are made by the donors to the Community Foundation to support worthy projects which positively impact Putnam County.

With the grant, the winter guard program is able to purchase a new floor tarp along with poles, flags, rifles and sabers that will better fit smaller bodies. Those items are expected to be used for many years to come, both in practice and competitions.

The JV will serve middle school and high school students and ready them to compete at a higher level with the Cloverdale varsity winter guard program.

Winter guard coaches and organizers strive to enrich the lives of every young lady or gentleman who walks through rehearsal doors. Cloverdale never turns anyone away, even if they do not have the ability to pay participation fees, and hopes to always remain faithful to that promise.

Thanks to community support like this grant, it can continue to provide winter guard to every student in grades 5-12 who would like to participate.

Rehearsals for all interested in the middle school and the high school, will begin after the return from fall break on Monday, Oct. 22 and continue Tuesday, Oct. 23 and Thursday, Oct. 25 from 5-8 p.m. at the Cloverdale Elementary gym.

Placement for varsity or JV will be determined at the beginning of November.
