Band Booster Meeting - Tuesday, April 1st

We will have Band Boosters meeting next Tuesday, April 1, at 6:30pm in the CHS Band Room. This is because school is dismissed on Monday for the rally at the state capitol and I’m using Monday to pick up supplies for the Route 66 Honor Band Lunch that will be on Thursday, April 3.

We have a few details on Route 66 to discuss and maybe a few things about the band trip in May.

I have a few volunteers for Thursday but could use more. Please spread the word to all the band parents you know so we can make the lunch on Thursday a success.

David

Band Boosters Need Your Help!

• We are running a concession stand for a craft show in Clinton on Saturday, March 1, from 9am to 6pm. We need 10-15 volunteers to works one shifts for the concession stand in 2-hour stints. If you can't help on Saturday, we may also need some help setting up on the night before, Friday, February 28.

• Route 66 Honor Band is Thursday, April 3. We have a hamburger fry for the 400+ band students who are in town that day. We need 4-5 people to help cook burgers from about 9:30am to 11:30am. We will also need 15-20 people to help serve the lunch from about 11:30 - 1:00pm.

These are two easy fund raisers but they do require help. Please make arrangements to help us with one or both. Call me at 580.214.0844 or email ddavis@bankofhydro.com to let me know when you can help.

We have 300+ students in our band program from 6th grade through HS. The money raised helps all of our students. Please help us help our band students!

Thanks,

David Davis, Band Booster President

Band Booster Meeting - Monday, February 3rd

The next Band Booster meeting is Monday, February 3 at 6:30pm in the CHS Band Room.

We have a lot to discuss about the concession stand at the Arts & Crafts show on March 1-2. This will be our last meeting before that event so we need to get our ducks in a row.

Also, please mark on your calendar that Route 66 Honor Band is Thursday, April 3. We are going to need a lot of help that day for the lunch fundraiser. Please make plans now to help out that day.

See you Monday

David

Band Booster Meeting December 2nd

November has flown by! It’s time for our monthly meeting on Monday, December 2, in the CHS Band Room at 6:30pm.

Thanks to Kenny & Karen Bragg for overseeing the poinsettia distribution last Saturday!

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! See you Monday.

David

Cheesecake Delivery

Cheesecake orders are arriving today November 26th and will be available for pick up at 3p.m. Please make sure you pick it up today no later than 5:30 at the HS Bandroom.

Band Booster Notes

For those of you who missed the meeting last night:

We have begun taking orders for poinsettias and Christmas wreaths. Orders will be turned in at our next regular meeting on Monday, November 4. We are hoping for delivery on Friday, November 22, and will try to have customers pick them up on Saturday, November 23 – in time for Thanksgiving and the entire Christmas season. We will work out how to deliver the orders that are not picked up.

I have order forms at my office. Please contact me to get an order form at (580) 214-0844 or ddavis@bankofhydro.com.

This is the third year we have sold these plants. They are excellent quality and will sell themselves IF and only IF we make the effort to contact people and take their orders. We will have some advertising in the newspaper to help but making those personal contacts is what will get plants sold! Think about who you might know that decorates at Christmas – your church, your business, your bank, your pharmacist, your neighbor, etc. We need to contact those people.

If you know of other band parents who are not helping, please contact them. We need more than 6 people working on this project.

David

Band Booster Meeting - Monday, October 7th

Just a reminder that Band Boosters will meet Monday, October 7, at 6:30pm in the CHS Band Room.

We will be taking orders for our Poinsettia fund raiser. Pam Gary should have the information for it. Please pass the word along to any band parents you know who are not listed as recipients above. The more we have selling, the better it will be for all of us.

See you there!
David
