The Rattlers’ Booster Club was formed in 1988 under the Alberta Societies Act through the initiative of Mike Havey. The initial intent of the Booster Club was to assist in the operation and support of the MHC Rattlers’ Athletic programs. Until 1998, the Booster Club continued to be operated by committed volunteer support of the members of the Department of Physical Education and Athletics at MHC. In 1998, with the club in a solid financial state, the MHC Rattlers’ Booster Club began to expand its membership to interested members in the community. Not surprisingly, the present members of the club are all alumni or members of the Athletic Department.
