All your pertinent details.

The Class of 2018 is getting creative.

As Coupeville’s newest seniors kick into gear to raise funds for their graduation party, they have two events planned for July 1.

First up is a rummage sale at the Coupeville Rec Hall from 9 AM-3 PM, then the Wolves will flip around and offer “date night” babysitting services at the same location from 6-9 PM.

CHS seniors will provide games, activities, art projects, movement, and a movie corner for kids.

Children must be potty-trained to participate.

Cost is $10 for one child, $20 for two, with a max family rate of $25.

Registration for the “date night” services will take place during the garage sale.

For those who don’t know, the Rec Hall is at 901 NW Alexander St., within easy walking distance of a ton of restaurants for parents who choose to incorporate that into their free time.

Christopher’s on Whidbey, The Oystercatcher, The Front Street Grill and Toby’s Tavern are all close enough to hit with your shoe from the Rec Hall parking lot (if you were to throw a shoe…).

Or head home and just enjoy the silence.

However you use the “date night” services or the garage sale, your money will go to help the Class of 2018 fund a “safe, sober (and awesome) Senior Trip next spring.

   Get your car washed Saturday and you can help current Wolves enjoy summer basketball camp (and sand castle building) like Julia Myers did. (Amy King photo)

It’s a win-win.

You can get your car washed and help support the most successful girls basketball program on Whidbey Island in one fell swoop.

The three-time defending Olympic League champion Coupeville Wolves hoops squad will be at Whidbey Island Bank (401 N. Main) twice this month, brushes and hose in hand.

First up is a car wash this Saturday, May 13 from 10 AM – 2 PM, then they come back around Saturday, May 27 at the same locale.

The events are fundraisers to help pay for the girl’s trip to a team camp this summer.

The camp has been an invaluable experience in recent years for the Wolves, giving varsity and JV players a chance to bond and work on their skills while playing four days worth of games, with a little beach time thrown in to keep things lively.

Let ‘er rip.

Coupeville High School softball sluggers will be swinging for the fences Mar. 11, in a bid to help better fund their program.

But before they take part in the team’s “1st Semi-Annual Hit-A-Thon” they’re out and about now, snagging donations.

You can sponsor a player or players and take your chances on their power with the bat or make a flat donation starting at $20.

During the Hit-A-Thon, each Wolf player will take 15 cuts at the plate, with their top two blasts (in fair territory) being added together for fundraising purchases.

So, if your favorite player were to park a ball 150 feet and another 200 feet, and you had pledged 10 cents per foot, you’d be coughing up $35 to keep CHS softball prospering.

You can also get in on the action yourself.

Pony up $5 and you can step into the batter’s box and get 10 swings of your own after the players have wrapped up their version of the home run derby.

"What do we want?" "CANDY!!" "Who do we want?" "People to sell it to us!!!!" (John Fisken photo)

Ask not what your school can do for you, ask what you can do for your school.

Right now, especially if you’re a student or parent directly involved with the Coupeville High School Class of 2017, what you can do is volunteer a bit of your time for the good of everyone.

Volunteers are needed to help run concession stands at CHS football, volleyball and basketball games.

That’s important work, as the money raised from sales of things like hot dogs and candy directly benefit the next graduating class and their senior trip next spring.

The class is also in the market for anyone willing to help by donating supplies (water, sodas, candy, etc.) for concession use.

While they would love to have seniors and their parents involved as much as possible, there has also been the suggestion that juniors (Class of 2018) might step up to help out for Homecoming.

That’s Oct. 7 this year, with Port Townsend coming to town.

If juniors (and their parents) step up that night, it would allow senior parents a chance to enjoy their final Homecoming festivities outside of the concession stand.

Could be a nice new tradition to start.

If you’re interested in volunteering (for any or all games) or donating, contact Lisa Edlin at Littlelisa68@yahoo.com or 360-914-7810.

You can change the world.

Yes, you, the one sitting there eating crackers in your pajamas while reading this.

With a new school sports year officially starting tonight, as the Coupeville High School girls’ soccer squad plays in a jamboree up Oak Harbor way (6 PM at Wildcat Stadium), now is the time for everyone to answer the call of their nation.

And by that, I mean Wolf Nation.

The power behind the throne — the Coupeville Booster Club — is putting out a call for new members, and it’s like they’ve sent you an engraved invitation.

Want to help guide the athletic future of the Wolves?

Be creative? Industrious? Packed with enough spirit that you elevate a couple of inches off the ground when you walk?

Or just want to write a check and sit back in your easy chair, content to eat crackers again, knowing you’ve done your bit?

Either way, this is most certainly for you.

The Booster Club, which is essentially a rollicking lil’ club of like-minded folks who band together to keep Coupeville athletics rolling, is absolutely essential.

From funding scholarships to buying varsity letters to providing snacks for teams stuck on long bus and ferry trips to clothing Wolf coaches in snazzy polo shirts, they are the people who make the magic happen.

In my own case, they were invaluable, both with a financial donation and extensive behind the scenes support, when I was working on my year-long project to install a Wall of Fame in the CHS gym.

Without their help and support, and their ability to calm me down whenever I started ranting about how we should get AC/DC to play the unveiling ceremony (while strobe lights and a fog machine waged war in the gym), the project would have veered off the road about 2,419 times.

But now, you’re asking yourself, why me?

Because every fan, whether you’re a Wolf parent or not, has valuable opinions and can bring a different perspective to the club.

New ideas, new energy, is what keeps the Booster Club hoppin’ as it keeps up with an ever-changing athletic world.

Join and you get access to the inner circle, a feeling of accomplishment and pride, a chance to make Coupeville athletics shine even brighter in the days to come, maybe even a pat on the head.

And candy.

Cause there’s usually candy at the club meetings. Just saying.

Whether you want to rise in the ranks to being one of those who guide the day-to-day business or you’re content to be the wind beneath their wings while staying in the background, now is the time.

How do you join? So, so easy. Thanks for asking.

There are four membership levels:

$25 makes you a Wolf backer.

$50 buys you an individual membership.

$75 nets you a family membership.

$125 gets you a business membership (with Wolf flag included).

PS — The secret fifth membership, known informally as the “Bill Gates level,” is if you step in and personally finance an entirely new football field or gym on your own.

Do that and the community gives you a parade and carries you through town on its shoulders, shouting your name as roses and chocolate rain down from the skies above for hours on end.

Could happen. You never know.

To join the Booster Club, there’s a couple of quick and easy options.

You could mail a check (written to “Coupeville Booster Club”) to P.O. Box 452, Coupeville, WA 98239, pop over to the Club’s Facebook page (see below) and use a credit card or swing by the club’s booth at Wolf games.

If you are Bill Gates, though, maybe use option three.

Don’t want to lose any million-dollar-plus checks in the mail now, do we?
