There will be a beverage cart on the course and cash bar in the clubhouse. A silent auction will also be taking place during the golf outing to support the Brighton Baseball Program.
Brighton Area Schools has begun using an on-line payment system.
Dear Scranton and B.H.S. Parents of Student Athletes,
As some of you may know or have already experienced Brighton Area Schools has begun using an on-line payment system called “payforit.net”. Brighton Athletics will now be doing all of its Pay to Participate and Transportation fees via “payforit.net” beginning this fall season. This should be a great time saver for parents, coaches, and our clerical staff as well! Likewise you will also be able to pay for any of your student’s non-athletic school registration expenses such as parking, yearbook, sports passes etc. If you have more than one student they can all be setup on the same account for easy tracking.
To set up your family’s account you will need the following:
To get started enter or click this link:
The windows for payment will be as follows:
B.H.S. – Fall Sports Payment window opens Monday, 8/25/14 & CLOSES – Friday 9/12/14 @ 12:00am
S.M.S. – Fall Sports Payment window opens Friday, 9/12/14 & CLOSES – Friday 9/26/14 @ 12:00am
Please note that as with most all on-line payment systems there is a convenience fee of 3.5% on credit cards or $1.75 for Electronic Checks and is automatically built into your total. As in the past if your student receives free or reduced lunch athletic fees will be waived. Also, if your family is experiencing an unexpected financial challenge please contact me and I will work with you to ensure that your child is provided the opportunity to participate.
We are looking forward to another great school year in our classrooms as well as another outstanding year of Brighton Athletics. Thank you, and as always…Go Dogs!

She also was the volunteer coordinator for all events put on by the organization. Upon returning to Michigan, Julie was elected to the Board of the Midwest Dressage Association (MDA) where she again participated in organizing schooling shows and other dressage related events.
