Purple Riders


It’s hard to believe that the Purple Rider Booster Club is celebrating 65 years of service to the youth of Martins Ferry.

My youngest son graduated in 1995 and I’m still a member. We have 11 active members who work very hard to provide for our youth, only one member has a son still in school. We need the support of Martins Ferry’s young parents. Starting with grades K thru 12. We would like to see some new faces at our weekly Wednesday meetings at the Booster Club on Broadway.

Our meetings are every Wednesday at 8 p.m. Come to a meeting and offer some new ideas on how we can serve our youth better.

Most of us are grandparents and only 2 members have grandchildren in Martins Ferry. Our next fund raiser will be our annual 300 Club Dinner on Sunday, Nov. 4 If you are a 300 Club member please try to attend our 65 Anniversary dinner.

The dinner is held at the Martins Ferry Rec Center, Nov. 4. The doors open at noon and the dinner starts at 1 p.m. and the drawings begin at 2 p.m. We hope to have a good turnout for our 65th Anniversary dinner.
