Shrewsbury Crew is 75 years old!
 
It’s time to celebrate!

  On the Spirit of Shrewsbury weekend, September 29-30th 2012, we will hold our gala celebration for our 75 years of history.
Currently, our plans include:  
·  An open house at the DRC on Friday night.  From 7-9pm we will welcome out of town guests and renew old acquaintances.  Light refreshments will be served.  The address is 237 North Quinsigamond Ave, Shrewsbury. ·        
A Saturday morning race.  At 10am our present crews will host and compete in a small invitational regatta for some of the area schools.  All are welcome to attend and cheer on our crews.  
 
·  A cookout around noon on Saturday.  Hot dogs, hamburgers, chips and a soft drink or water will be served.  After the cookout, we have a learn to row session for interested family members, and a chance for alumni crews to get back in the boat and have 500m races from 290 to the DRC.  Cost is $5 per person.   
· The Spirit of Shrewsbury Parade on Sunday.  Want to march with the shell carrier?  You’re welcome to join us!    Please let us know if you and any guests will be attending the reception, cookout, or rowing festivities.  If you know of any other Shrewsbury Crew members, please share this information so they can join their teammates in celebrating our Diamond Jubilee.  Tracking everyone down has been a challenge. Contact Coach Krause, at pkrause@shrewsbury.k12.ma.us at 64 Holden Street, Shrewsbury, MA  01545.  Another contact point is at shrewsburycrew.org, where anyone can send the coaches an email with their contact information.   My grandfather, Ken Burns, would have been very happy that the program has grown and flourished, with so much support from former oarsmen and involved community members.   
Hoping to hear from you soon!

Fundraising Plans for 2012Go FOSC and Shrewsbury Crew!  

1)      Our annual Calendar Raffle will be sold in April to be drawn each day in May.  You can check our website at shrewsburycrew.org for details and purchase options.  There is usually a good bit of excitement around our fantastic calendar offerings, and a chance to win 31 times!

 

2)      Blankets for sale!  To commemorate our 75th year we have nylon backed folding fleece blankets for sale on our website.  Great to throw in the car for emergencies, bring to a race or picnic, or just wrap up in!

 

3)       Inches for sale.  We are selling an inch of the shell for $50.  This would entitle the donor to have their initials printed on the side of the boat under the gunnels.  Example: “A.B.C.”.  If a donor wants to print out a whole name, it would be at the price of $50 per inch for 3-6 letters and or spaces.  For example “Albert B. Cunningham” would be $200 for the donation, because it takes up about 4 inches.  If the year of graduation were to be added, it would be an additional $50 for “ ’37”.

 

4)      Oars for sale.  Oars are also available to purchase for our program.  We need 8 oars for each shell to be able to row.  We usually buy a set of 10 for each boat so that we have a spare port and starboard oar.

 The Shrewsbury High School Boosters Club has set up an account for this fundraising event, with all money raised going into a specific crew account held for us for the purchase of the shell, and possibly oars and electronics to go with it.  All checks can be made out to the SHS Boosters and sent to Shrewsbury High, 64 Holden Street, Shrewsbury, MA 01545.  Please note “SHS Crew” in the memo section of your check. 

I would like to buy __________ inches of the boat at $50 per inch*. 

A set of 3 initials will fit in the inch space.  Initials in the order that you want them to appear: _______________

AND/OR

Name as you would like it to appear on the gunnels: ________________________________________________

 

I would rather support the crew team with the purchase of an oar at $300 each*:

Celebrating 75 Years 1937-2012


“Buy” the Inch, and We’ll Go The Mile Campaign

Shrewsbury Crew is in its 75th year of existence!
It seems like yesterday that we had the
bumper stickers made up with “Shrewsbury Crew, 50 Years of Tradition”. Over the years we have had many people that have contributed to the program.

The FOSC (Friends of Shrewsbury Crew) is engaged in a fundraising campaign to update and supplement some of the rowing equipment. Although we have had very generous donations over the past decades, additional equipment is still needed.

One way to help our program is to buy an inch of the boat for $50. The cost of a new boat is $35,700. Another option is donating oars, which cost $300 for each one. A tax receipt will be made out for anyone making a donation during this campaign, if requested.

In the Fall of 2012, on the Spirit of Shrewsbury weekend, we will hold our gala celebration for our 75 years of history. Currently, preliminary planning includes:

• An open house at the DRC on Friday night. From 7-10pm we will welcome out of town guests and renew old acquaintances.
• A Saturday morning race. At 10am our present crews will host and compete in a small invitational regatta for some of the area schools. All are welcome to attend and cheer on our
crews.
• A cookout around noon on Saturday. After the cookout, we will offer a learn-to-row session for interested friends and family members, and a chance for alumni crews to get back in the boat and
have 500m races from 290 to the DRC.
• The Spirit of Shrewsbury Parade on Sunday. Anyone wanting to march with the shell carrier and
crew is welcome to join us!

We need your help!
We are trying to track down everyone who has rowed for Shrewsbury Crew
so they can join their teammates in celebrating our Diamond Jubilee. If you are in contact with any former rowers, please ask if they have heard from us. If not, have them contact Coach Krause at SHS, 64 Holden Street, Shrewsbury, MA 01545. We can also be reached atwww.shrewsburycrew.org, where anyone can send the coaches an email with their information.
Another place for contact is on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/ShrewsburyCrew.
We
look forward to re-connecting with as many Shrewsbury alumni as possible!


My grandfather, Ken Burns, would have been very happy that the program has grown and
flourished, with so much support from former oarsmen and community members.


Hoping to hear from you soon.

Thank you, Pamela Krause, Head Coach of Girls Crew
