Munching For Music Weekend+

Dear Band Families,

You are reading that correctly! We are about to have an entire weekend+ to support Munching for Music! Our friends at Tom+Chee have generously offered to donate 15% of sales from our revenue back to our band! Even better, they are giving us a whole weekend+ to do it! Crazy! Three whole days to help raise funds for the band! You can tell this is an exciting event because of all of the exclamation marks in this paragraph!

Please plan on eating at Tom+Chee on February 10,11 &12, 2018, Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Yes, we are suggesting to eat there each one of those days. There are plenty of choices to keep things from getting boring. They offer grilled cheese plus other melts, soups, salads, and sides. If you’re really feeling adventurous, try a filled, grilled donut! WHAT?! Yes, grilled donuts with various fillings! That alone is a great reason to eat there for an entire weekend!

Please print out the attached flyer, or pick up a copy from the band room, and take it with you to the restaurant. This will be the best way to ensure we get credit for your purchase. You can also show the flyer on your phone if you forget to take one.

Spend an early Valentine’s Day with your loved one at TOM+CHEE!

Thank you supporting our band!

Coming Soon...Rhythm and Raffle!

Dear Band Families,

As you know, our Rhythm and Raffle Fundraiser is just around the corner on Saturday, February 24th. It will be an evening full of family fun, fantastic music, and fabulous baskets. But did you know you can help make this event incredible with very little effort? The committee is hard at work looking for donations for those fabulous baskets and would love your help. No donation is too big or too small. Maybe you received a gift card for the holidays that you will never use. Or you’d like to advertise for your favorite salon with a gift certificate. Or let everyone know about that favorite bottle of wine you discovered. Or maybe you’d like to promote your business by becoming a sponsor at one of our four donor levels. All donors will be recognized in the program, in our local newspapers, and on the Band Booster website. Please click on 2018 Rhythm & Raffle Donations to see some of the items we are looking for. If you have something else in mind that you’d like to donate, please email Corresponding Secretary Regina Atkinson at reggiem1209@yahoo.com. As always, thank you all for your support of our outstanding band program and we can’t wait to see you there!

Happy New Year News!

Dear Band Families,

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2018 to all our Band Families!

It is hard to believe that 2017 is coming to end so quickly… What a fantastic year it was for our Band Program! Looking forward to the start of 2018 and all the events coming up until the end of the school year….

Now that you have had a chance to catch your breath, I would like to list a few of the events coming up in 2018…. As always, we need YOUR help to make these events a success!!!

First, we will be sponsoring Rhythm and Raffle on February 24th at North Royalton High School Cafeteria 1 (right by the PAC). This is a FAMILY event with dinner, basket raffles and performances by Middle School, High School and Baldwin Wallace jazz bands, combos, and ensembles….. It will be a great night of music!

But to host this event, we need help on our planning committees…. Please consider joining one of our committees…. Follow the SignUpGenius Link to read the committee descriptions and volunteer to help us plan the FUNDRAISING event for the Band Programs!

Second, in the near future, there will be a link available for volunteering to chaperone our band members to the Concert Contests. Stay tuned for more information….

Third, our school will host the STATE contest. We will need almost 100 parents to help us run the two-day event! Details will be coming out in March regarding the event!

Finally, we will be needing help with the Band Award Banquet in May…. Again more details to follow…

Please keep these events in mind as we wind down the Band Program season….

As always, thank you for your help and enjoy the rest of your time off. Happy 2018!
