Fruit Sale Blitz Rescheduled


Due to the impending landfall of Hurricane Irma, projected to hit Florida this weekend ‪through Tuesday as a Cat. 4 or 5, we have been advised by our fruit company to hold off on our Fruit Sale. We receive the majority of our citrus fruit for the sale from Florida. Until the hurricane has passed, we will not know how our growers will be impacted.

We will be rescheduling our Blitz Packet Handout to ‪Wednesday September 20th. Band members will still be reporting to Cafeteria 2 after 6-9 practice. We still need volunteers for the hand out that day ‪from 8:30pm - 9:30pm. Please see the revised Sign Up Genius to volunteer.

We will be doing our Fruit Sale Blitz on Saturday, September 23rd. (We do realize some of you may have prior commitments for that day such as Cross Country meets etc. These students may also sell on Sunday the 24th as well. We will be available on Monday the 25th after Band practice by the Band room to collect those few Blitz packets as well.)

The schedule for the 23rd is pictured below and is also on Mr. Vitale's website. We will hold our Blitz Packet turn in and Pizza Party (on September 23rd) after the Band Members have reported for the Twinsburg football game. We need volunteers for this day to help with packet collection and pizza from 4pm - 5:30pm Please see the revised Sign Up Genius to volunteer.

Volunteer Here

We will be handing out packets for the Personal Fruit Sale after 6-9 practice on September 27th.

We very much appreciate your flexibility, understanding, and support with these unexpected changes. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact us. Please keep our growers and all the families in the path of this hurricane in your thoughts. This could be a catastrophic situation for all of those in the path of this destructive monster which could cause loss of lives, homes and livelihoods.

Thank you!

We Really Need Your Help This Weekend

Dear Band Families,

We are down to 61 openings for Air Show this weekend. Those 61 spots are worth over $2,000! Plus, our numbers for Sunday and Monday are low enough that we may not be invited back next year. Help us earn money for our band this year and keep the opportunity for future years. It is fun and easy work. You get to see the show for free, and lunch & parking are provided too. Make it a family day and volunteer with your high school kids!

Please sign up here.

If you have questions, contact Gary Diehl at

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.
