Football program sales warning
Sunday, 29 July 2012 by Keith Bahlmann
Sales of the official Belton Tigers football program has begun and area business are being warned of sales of calendars that are not associated with Belton High School. There is nothing illegal about businesses coming into the area and selling calendars but these businesses do not donate any of the proceeds to Belton's athletic program.
After expenses for printing 100 percent of the revenue sold in Belton's Friday night football program go to the athletic program at BHS. "They call on the phone and mention the name of football team and do it in a way that is legal. These company's give nothing to the athletic program or the district we are in. They aren't doing anything that is illegal but we feel it isn't right. If somebody calls just ask if they have permission from the BHS athletic director. Football coaches sell our program we use for Friday night home football games. These companies are not lying but it isn't ethical," said Tigers Assistant Athletic Director Michael Morgan.
"I feel bad for the businesses that thing they are helping us out by running ads in these publications. If you have a question or need an ad call us at 215-2230."
