Fruit Sale Blitz Rescheduled

REVISED FRUIT SALE BLITZ WEEKEND INFORMATION:

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!

Thank You, Band Families

Dear Band Families,

I cannot thank you enough for your participation in the Cleveland National Airshow. Although our numbers were significantly down this year, those of you who volunteered did a fantastic job and for those of you who volunteered to work two days, well, there just are no words. Your efforts are greatly appreciated.

After a rough start on Saturday, you all came through on Monday in a big way. Airshow officials have told me that Monday was the largest attended day in recent memory. It was estimated we had well over 5000 cars come through the gate on Monday. Fortunately, we had a whopping 94 volunteers that day allowing us to easily handle the volume. And even better, the lot was completely full by 2:30 PM and we were done!

The North Royalton High School Marching Band is a large organization and a big operation. Without the help of volunteers like you, our kids would not be able to enjoy the benefits of belonging to this great organization.

Please stay involved in any way you can and again, thank you for your efforts and contribution to the kids and the marching band!

Sincerely,
Gary Diehl, Airshow Chairperson

A Note of Thanks

Dear Band Families,

As a follow up to our email titled: ‘Today’s News’, the Boosters would like to extend a HUGE THANK YOU to all the bandos, their families and friends that stepped up to help us out on Sunday and Monday! We had a record turnout of volunteers!

We hope that you had a fantastic time, watched the Air Show and were able to meet other band families in the process.

If you have any pictures you would like to share, please post them to the North Royalton Band Booster website…. We would love to see them!

Enjoy your week and see you at our first HOME football game this Friday.

Amanda Kost
President
