Fill The Truck!

Hello fellow band parents!

Our next Easter Seals fundraising event will take place during our holiday concerts. Please share our event on all of your social media platforms (email, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) that you use! So many people love this opportunity! The only thing that holds us back from filling the truck this holiday season is not getting the word out! We will have the info on our band website and Facebook. Please help us out by spreading the word! Just copy and paste.

Please join us for our “Fill the Truck” event on Sunday, December 18th and Monday, December 19th!

North Royalton Band Boosters will partner with Easter Seals Northern Ohio to not only raise money for the North Royalton Band program, but also to help local children and adults with disabilities.

  • WHO: We need YOU! Tell your friends, family, neighbors, churches, or anyone else looking to clear clutter and do something GOOD for our community during this holiday season!
  • WHAT: An Easter Seals truck will be parked at North Royalton High School, just outside of the Performing Arts Center 14713 Ridge Road to accept donations of clothing, blankets, towels, shoes, purses, stuffed animals, cloth lunchboxes and backpacks, etc. Even stained items can be recycled! The more items we donate, the more money we will raise! (*All donations are tax-deductible and you will receive a receipt when you drop off your items). Our goal is to Fill The Truck to capacity to support our North Royalton Band program. We challenge you to fill a bag with cloth items and donate it to our fundraiser this holiday season.
  • WHEN: Sunday, December 18th from 12:00 pm until 2:00 pm and again from 4:00 pm until 7:00 pm. *between 2 pm and 4 pm donations can be left next to the truck as we will be enjoying the holiday performance of North Royalton’s finest musicians in the Performing Arts Center at this time. Monday, December 19th from 4:00 pm until 7:00 pm.

Start “stashing your stuff” and do something GOOD for children and adults with disabilities while helping the North Royalton High School Band! You can use ANY bag for donations! No hard goods will be accepted at this event.

THANK YOU!

Also, come visit us at the Easter Seals truck and lend a hand! It's easy and fun work while connecting with our neighbors! Here's the sign up genius link.

Sincerely,
Holly Michalke

Juniors! We Need You!

Hi Junior Band Families,

WE NEED YOUR HELP!

On Friday, October 7, 2016, we will be honoring the senior band members. Dinner for them and their immediate family will be served at 5:15PM, right after practice and before the game. We are hoping the rest of the band will enjoy pizza, bakery and beverages, but CURRENTLY LESS THAN HALF THE JUNIOR BAND FAMILIES HAVE SIGNED UP TO DONATE and there will not be enough bakery for the Juniors, Sophomores and Freshmen.

We are asking all Junior Band Families to bring store bought desserts with NO peanuts to this event. Please send your dessert with your band student and have them drop it off in Cafeteria II before they go to practice. Please put your last name on the dessert. NO dessert should be dropped off in the band room. Someone will be in Cafeteria II to take it.

Please sign up for a dessert here. Any store bought bakery or cookies (with NO peanuts) would be greatly appreciated.

If you have any questions, please contact me at alandhelenkelly@cox.net or (440) 746-9048.

Thanks,

Helen

Band Fest Help Needed!

Hello Band Parents and Supporters!

Our 2016 Band Festival is this coming Saturday, September 17. We currently have very few people signed up to help. If you would like to help us out, please click here on this link . It will take you to the sign up genius where you can choose which volunteer opportunity you would like to do!

The jobs we need help with are as follows:

  • Program Sales (4) Sales will pause during NRHS Band's performance
  • Ushers (6) Volunteers will be assisting audience in the home stands
  • Ticket Sales and Collections (10) Volunteers will be needed at the start of the evening. Once the number of people entering slows down, volunteers can trade shifts to man entrances. Sales will end before NRHS Band's performance.
  • Concessions (8) Sales will pause during NRHS Band's performance

It really is an easy and fun evening and you will still get to see your student perform! Please sign up or let me know what you would like to do. If you have already signed up, thank you! Please feel free to ask a friend to sign up with you. Just forward them this email and they can click on the link or email me. Thanks for your help in making the Band Fest a great experience for our kids and our visitors from around Northeast Ohio!

Easter Seals Fundraiser Reminder

Hello Band Families,

As our Easter Seals event draws closer, we are working harder than ever to spread the word about this event. If you happen to visit, or know someone that is involved with a garage sale, rummage sale, street sale, moving sale, flea market or yard sale, kindly let the seller know that after their sale, they can donate their unsold SOFT GOOD items to our Easter Seals event (NR Home Days) on Sat/Sun August 20-21 next to the board office. We also have a location to drop off items ahead of time if this time is inconvenient!

Finally, follow this link to volunteer your time! It is an easy and extremely helpful way to show your support!

Any questions?
