Upcoming events:

Soon, very soon, the snow will be gone, and spring will be upon us!  Beginning Memorial Day Weekend, the CH Athletic Boosters will once again have their food wagon in the parking lot of Top Valu Liquors selling hot dogs and sodas.  If you are looking for a way to earn money for your team, club, or activity, please contact us so that we can get you on a schedule!  Groups can earn $125 per day worked.  Email us at, or call 763-706-3743 so that we can start tracking the weekends!  An adult must be present during the entire shift, and typically each shift we need 3-4 people.  Feel free to bring signs to promote your team/group!  Weekends can fill up quickly so please reach us as soon as you know when you’re available! 

Thank you to those from Columbia Academy that joined us for dinner on Thursday, February 13, 2014 and then watched the CHHS Boys Basketball Game!  We were also able to feed the JV team, which they enjoyed greatly!   Coaches and captains were  on hand to meet and greet.  Thanks again for joining us!

What a great turn out we had from Highland, North Park, and Valley View Elementaries on Tuesday, January 14, 2014 at the High School for the CHHS Boys Basketball Game!  Kids and parents were invited to come down to the caffeteria at 5:45 for a free dinner, and to meet the Captains of the team.  The Boosters were on hand to serve dinner and meet and greet with the kids and parents, and then head upstairs to cheer for our HYLANDERS!  THANK YOU to everyone who came out to join us, and another THANK YOU to all of the Boosters on hand who helped!

Who We Are…

The Boosters began, in 1955 or thereabout with Joe Klis, Freddie Brynes, Frenchy Von Dell, Dick Borchardt, and John Murzyn Sr. They met in the field house, sometimes in the downstairs Boiler Room and then moved to John Murzyn’s Park Board office. A note was printed from a very old paper that was found by Gary Peterson that contained the following:

“To create an organization of community volunteers that will use all their talents and skills to raise money to support youth activities and athletics in Columbia Heights so that all youth who wish to participate in activities will not be denied as a result of not having the financial means to do so.”

This has been the our mission statement from the very beginning.  From this meager beginning – the Boosters have continually grown. (click here for more Boosters History)

What we are…

Our Organization is busy year round with fundraisers such as selling hot dogs and Pop at Top Valu during the summer weekends, Annual 5K, Annual Golf Tournament, Running the Food Wagon at the Jamboree, and also through Charitable Gambling, such as Bar Bingo, Pull Tab Sales, Raffle Calendar Sales, and Meat Raffles.  Through these efforts, we have been able to provide more  than $275.0000.00 in scholarships to the graduating seniors at Columbia Heights High School, and more than $2 Million in donations to the City of Columbia Heights, the Park & Recreation Dept. and Independent School District 13.

Where we are…

We invite you to become a Member of this organization.  You can be part of a group of volunteers that are giving their time and talents to the Community and School District 13.  We are all working towards a common Goal – to provide funds for the programs that your kids wish to participate in. Meetings are the 3rd Wednesday of every month at Murzyn Hall, lower level, just inside the back door (senior room) 7:00 PM.  Your only obligation is to just show up.
