Easter Seals Is This Weekend!

Hi Parents,

Our Easter Seals event is this weekend! The event runs Saturday from 9-6 and Sunday from 1-6. We will temporarily close for the parade and reopen again after. I would like to thank the numerous people that have signed up to help this weekend, we could not do it without you! This is a very successful fundraising opportunity that requires no out of pocket expenses, just a little of your time and the willingness to clean out your unwanted soft goods from your closets!!!

Here are the final details...

If you are scheduled to work…

  1. Come dressed for the weather - hopefully, we will be able to dodge the raindrops! (But you can hide out in the truck if rain is eminent.)
  2. I will bring 4 plastic chairs for you to sit on.
  3. Only accept soft goods - ABSOLUTELY NO HOUSEHOLD NICKNACKS, PICTURE FRAMES, LAMPS, BOOKS, CD'S etc. WILL BE ACCEPTED.
  4. If a person donates these unacceptable goods, try to kindly give them back and explain why...or just set them aside and we will dispose of them after the sale.
  5. NO SLEEPING BAGS OR PILLOWS ARE PERMITTED. However, stuffed animals and all other bedding items are acceptable.
  6. We are expecting to come close to filling the entire truck, so please start at the back of the truck and completely fill that area before moving forward.

That's it! We truly appreciate you! There are a few open spots on Saturday and Sunday. Check out the link below and sign up. It is very easy and actually quite fun and rewarding to see how many people are helping a really good cause.

Here's the sign up genius link.

I look forward to seeing everyone this weekend!

Air Show

The largest Band Booster fundraiser of the year is coming up fast – The Cleveland National Air Show September 3-5th.

The North Royalton Band Boosters have provided manpower to the air show for many years and we are given preferential treatment by the organizers due to the large number of hard working and enthusiastic volunteers we offer. When fully staffed, this event earns the Band up to $10,000!

In order to fully staff the air show and maximize our fundraising opportunity, we need to supply 80 volunteers each day of the air show. We will sell and collect tickets at the Plaza booth and at Gate 13, where we will also managing the parking. For those of you who have not worked the air show before, this is a great way to get to know your fellow band parents and have a fun time meeting people. Volunteering at the Air Show is usually a family event so moms, dads, and siblings are all welcome along with our “Bandos.” Children must be 15 years of age to participate.

To sign up for your slots, we have set up a form at www.signupgenius.com. All you need to do is select your day, indicate the number of volunteers in your group and provide a phone number and email address.

Here is the link to our signup form.

Note: Monday is usually the hardest day to fill so if you are available Monday, please select that day. Thank you to all the band parents who have already indicated you are planning on volunteering and to those who have yet to volunteer, please consider participating in this event.
