Montgomery County stopped funding its ARML team in 2008, but Mr. Walstein has continued to bring five teams (A, B, C, D, and Junior) to ARML each year through the support of generous private donors and an increasing amount of money out of the students' own pockets. The Blair Magnet Foundation is hoping to raise more money from alumni and the community to help support the ARML team.
Your donations are tax deductible, and any amount will help the Montgomery County ARML teams. $65 pays for the housing of one student at Pen State. $130 covers housing and transportation, and helps cover the costs of volunteer chaperones. $400 is the registration fee for each ARML team.
We are hoping to find a permanent sponsor for the the ARML team, or an organization that will commit to a larger donation. If you have any suggestions, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mr. Walstein is also looking for volunteers to help run weekly practices, which are held every Thursday night at Montgomery Blair High School. If you are available to help, please e-mail Eric_D_Walstein@mcpsmd.org.
