Good Afternoon Band Family!!!

We are still looking for a few amazing parents to work the concession stand tomorrow Friday Sept 23 at Ellet. Please call Amy McPherson @ 330-400-0975 to volunteer! Parents, this is one of the ways the boosters are able to raise funds for the Instrumental Music Program without selling items. Last year we received over $1500.00 for helping staff the concession stand during the football season. These funds keep instruments in good repair, buys dinner for the students when we stay after school before performances, and also helps to buy new music for our students to learn. Thank you in advance for all your help!

Sweatshirt, Hoodies and track jacket orders will be in by October 3rd! Right in time for the chilly fall weather!

Looking forward to seeing many of you tonight at the game tonight!
