BAND DVD ORDERS ARE BEING TAKEN NOW
We hope that our students and their families enjoyed watching the Band Video at the concert last night. It’s so much fun to reminisce about the past year and it’s amazing to see how much the students have changed in nine months, let alone in four years!!  Thank you to our incoming Vice President, Miki Valenta, for producing our video this year!

There is still time to order this keepsake for your family!

DVDs are $12 each if you will pick up your order. If you prefer to have your order mailed to you, the cost is $14.50 each.

BUY ME SOME PEANUTS, AND CRACKER JACKS……. AND TICKETS!!!
“Take me out to the ballgame. . . .”

Hey, you can even take your father for Father’s Day or your kid for graduation!

The Band Boosters have a “big league” fundraiser for you!  We are selling vouchers for Saltdogs games!!

The vouchers are good for any upcoming home game. Tickets are only $12.00 each. You can buy them yourself or sell them to your friends and family. The vouchers would make a great gift for Father’s Day or as a thank you to those special teachers for a great year, to your neighbors for mowing your yard, or to your friends for just being there.  Maybe your employer would like to buy some as incentives for their employees this summer.

Our goal is to sell at least 100 vouchers. All funds raised will go towards supporting the band.

Together, we can make this fundraiser a “home run”!!

If you are interested in purchasing the vouchers, please contact the Chair, Heather Johnson @ k3johnson@ymail.com

 

SENIOR PARENTS: NOW’S THE TIME TO DONATE YOUR STUDENT’S UNWANTED BAND APPAREL!!!!
The Band Boosters will accept donations of band apparel (blue polos, white t-shirts, black shorts, white gloves, black shoes, etc.), from our graduating seniors for use by students next year.

We will also accept any spirit gear (including band/section tshirts/sweatshirts, band parent/family shirts, etc.)

Please bring your donations to the band room before May 24th.
