My question is: Is there anyone checks to see where the money actually goes that is paid to Hopewell Quarterback League. This is the League that runs youth football and Cheerleading in the city and seems to me that no one checks to see if the money goes in the league. I think somebody needs to audit them. its not that hard to see how many kids are in the league and how much money you should have.
fundraisers and fundraisers does the money go in the bank and for the kids? People that have been in charge for many years and no one is checking to see where the money is. Parents have talked about this for years and nothing is done. Its not being seen on the kids I can tell you that. and the city gives them everything for free. Familys and friends running it.
The City of Hopewell needs to step up and audit and see where the communities money is going. Its a problem that is allowed to go on and on. wheres the money going?
i agree

Being a past president of the HQL back around 2005 or so, I can assure you that we had a report regarding money at every monthly meeting. Our meetings were open to everyone! We reported how much money was taken in and how much was going out for things like equipment, referees, etc. A youth football and cheerleading league takes alot of money to run!! The last time I checked the HQL is a lot cheaper to join than the youth league in Chesterfield. Everyone on the HQL board, coaches, etc. are volunteers and work their butts off for the children! I can also assure you that all the money goes towards the children! Other than providing the practice and game facilities the City of Hopewell has nothing to do with the Hopewell Quarterback League. You need to volunteer to help the HQL or go to one of their meetings and I am sure they would show you where "all the money goes"!

Your totally right about certain people being audited. But not whats currently in place those people in charge now are trying to rebuild this league the way its suppose to be. But it cant happen over night as far as some family being out there it is because of lack of volunteers. If you wanna gripe it should be towards the right people. Those who ran it from about three years back several years up to then. Several board members have been removed over the past 3 years. And yes those people, Read, cherry,crouch,s Should all be audited and answer why there pockets got thicker. And the leagues got thinner.(During a time when hopewell had three times the amount of kids playing where did all that money go) But there not there anymore. Whats in place will work if giving time. And you have to realize that the league lost alot of its funding. So the fund raisers are there to help the league recover. And the equipment is sometimes given to the league but most is old and out dated. Knew equipment is still needed to replace old out dated equipment . Would you want to sweat in shoulder pads that were 20 years old? Or defected eqipment? I wouldnt want my child with old equipment Why are you just griping about football anyway What about baseball Those who have been running it into the ground for years are still there. Nobody has noticed the drop in sign ups volunteers over the past 16 years? Before long kids wont have a summer sport to play. Gripe about that. And try to support what knew board members for HQL. Are trying to rebuild the proper way. So take your pitchforks and toraches and put them away or go after the right group of people. Why dont you look at the rec department with all thats happening there. I wont point fingers because every one knows who Im talking about.

Funny that people not in Hopewell or have a kid in the football program are worried and spread things about it. I played, coached , and was on the board for a short while. I coached for 9 years up to 2008. We had got all new equipment for the kids had real refs. I think the people in the program and see where the money is going. I do know the people in it now and yes it has changed but they are still honest good people. And just a note the HQL has not been part of the city since I played in the mid 80's. So it has taken care of itself for a while and doing pretty good at it.
