A Message From Mr. Vitale

Dear Band Families

On behalf of the Band Boosters, I just wanted to remind parents that we still need volunteers for this weekend’s Air Show. We have slots that need to be filled for Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. It is not hard work, there are plenty of breaks, and lunch is provided! You can even make an event of it with your student, because they can help as well (as long as they are over 15) and then you guys get to see the Air Show while you are helping out!

You can signup online using our form.

You can also call and contact Gary Diehl 440-915-1178 or Amanda Kost 440-864-6543 if a phone call is easier.

This is one of our biggest fundraisers for the Band - and if we are not able to fully staff it, then we run the risk of not being invited to run it in the future. This is a great opportunity that many sports and organizations would love to have, and we are very fortunate to have this fundraiser - so let’s work hard to make sure we can hold onto it! Any time you can give towards this fundraiser is greatly appreciated and directly benefits your student. Please use the link to sign up or call one of the above people to help with this. Thanks!

-Mr. V.

50/50 RAFFLE – need a parent to assist our chairperson the nights of the home games. You would help check in our volunteers, distribute tickets to our volunteers to sell, collect money, tear tickets and help close out the raffle. Involvement is from 6 pm – halftime.

Clothing Drive Correction

The Band Boosters have recently learned that Easter Seals has transferred the part of their organization that does the ‘Fill The Truck' drives to Savers, a global thrift retailer. Savers is an organization that helps more than 120 nonprofit organizations by paying them for donated goods. Your donations are a donation to the North Royalton Band Boosters and are still tax deductible. We will have a charitable tax deduction form for you for tax purposes. We will receive funds based on the weight of what we collect as we have in the past. We will be collecting soft good items (clothing, shoes, purses, blankets, towels, table cloths, etc.) next to the Board of Education (6579 Royalton Road) on Friday (4-9pm), Saturday (10 – 8pm) and Sunday (12 – 6pm).

Air Show Update

Dear Band Families,

Thank you to the many of you who have already signed up to volunteer at the Cleveland Air Show this year. Your support for the kids in the band is very much appreciated!

We are still looking for a few more people to fill our quota of volunteers.

If you have not volunteered yet, please consider doing so. This really is a fun event and the whole family can participate, the more the better. If you have any questions about the event, please contact me at Otherwise you can sign up online here.

Cleveland Airshow - We need your help

Dear Band Families,

Thank you to the many new band parents that signup up last night to volunteer at the Cleveland Air Show this year.

We are well on our way to filling our quota of volunteers, but we are not there yet – especially for Monday. We need a total of 85 people each of the three days at the airshow to fill our quota. We are paid per volunteer, so the more volunteers we have the more we can raise for the band. For those of you who are not aware, this is a marching band trip year where almost 300 Bandos spend a week at Disney and march in the parade there. It is an awesome experience.

The money raised at the air show is earmarked to offset the cost of the trip.

If your son or daughter is planning on participating in the Disney trip this year, volunteering a few hours of your time would be much-appreciated contribution toward this great experience.

You can sign up online here.

Thank You,

Gary Diehl Air Show Committee Chairman
