Happy 2012 Band Boosters!
I hope that everyone had a great break and is looking ahead to a wonderful new year. The kids are very busy with their work, Drum Line, Colour Guard, Symphony, Concert and Jazz Bands, for all of these activities you can expect updates from the Directors. As the kids do their work we as Boosters continue to do ours to support them. This is why I want to give everyone a heads up about what is happening and again encourage your participation.
- Feb. 1 – 17 Little Caesar’s Pizza Kit Sales (paperwork to come home with students)
- Feb. 5 Winter Invitational at WBHS (lots of volunteers needed just like the Fall Invitational)
- Feb. 12 Bottle and Can Drive (information to follow, so please save your returnables especially from Super Bowl Sunday!!! and ask your friends to do so too!)
***The plan to have our Annual Spaghetti Dinner/Silent Auction has been changed. The new date is Wed. March 21, 6-8:30pm. Entertainment provided by our very own Jazz Band. Tickets just $7/person. Great deal for a great night out.
Order forms for tickets for the Dinner will be sent home with the kids on Mon. Feb. 27. Please plan to return ticket order forms and money by Mon. March 12.
Actual tickets will then be sent home with students on Mon. March 19.
This year in addition to the Spaghetti Dinner we are having a fun Silent Auction on the same night. We anticipate some nice donations and encourage all of you to make donations too. Some ideas could be: a beautiful hand knit scarf, a certificate for your special home-made bread, or a themed basket, say “A Day at the Beach”. All donations welcomed, please contact me with your contributions, by March 12.
I look forward to all of these events. I would especially love to see more of you at the General Membership meetings. Please consider marking your calendar and coming to the one Tues. Feb. 7, 7pm. You may be the lucky winner of a $25 gift certificate just for attending (yes, that is bribery!). This is a wonderful way to stay connected with my Band Friends!
