The La Mesa Historical Society recently released the following announcement:
in partnership with and Charter High Schools announces the fund raising campaign for retro style 1952 football jerseys for this year’s 61st “Old Musket” rivalry game on October 26, 2012.
The Society has sponsored this fund raising event in an effort to invite and engage the City’s two high school communities in this year’s Centennial Celebration. The Society has also opened the campaign by pledging a jersey for each team.
Around $6,850 is needed to outfit both teams with at least 60 jerseys including centennial logo patches.
Each jersey costs approximately $55. All donations to the Historical Society are tax deductible.
Any funds raised above those used for retro uniforms will be split between the two schools’ athletic departments. *Both Athletic Departments will also accept donations.
