Yankee Candle Fundrasier

I'm giving the packets to the kids this week. All orders and payments are due to me MONDAY, SEPT. 26 at rehearsal. Orders must be complete and paid for with cash or check written to ELLET BAND BOOSTERS. Checks are best. I will not submit orders that are missing payments. We make 43% on this fundraiser! We hope to make $2000.00 on the sale this year and we can do that if everyone sells, even just one item (last year only half the band participated, so we didn't make what we'd budgeted).
I will be explaining to them how to fill out the order forms correctly but if anyone has any questions they can call me at 330-819-9317 or email theresa_rousculp@yahoo.com (underscore in the middle). We are a tax-exempt organization and do not charge tax on these orders. The customer does not pay shipping and the prices are very comparable to the Yankee Candle Store prices.
We need 100% participation and for the parents to take the catalogs to their workplaces to help sell as well. No door-to-door selling is needed! Just sell to teachers, family, friends, neighbors, co-workers,  and people at church. Orders may also be collected via email once people have looked at the brochure online:  http://www.yankeecandlefundraising.com/fallCatalog.html
Delivery will be to the football stadium concession stand 2-4 weeks from receipt of orders. The faster I receive orders complete the faster I can submit them and receive the products (last year several people took 2 extra weeks to submit orders, pushing our delivery into the busier time of year). The students will be responsible for picking up the items they sold and delivering to their customers.
Sellers, the order forms are in triplicate, so press down hard when you write. Be sure to keep the pink copy of your order forms and a copy of the catalog to help you deliver to your customers.
Thank you!

Uploading Your Photos

We have installed an easy program to upload your photos to share with our band family. On the right-hand margin you will find the 
File Stork link (it's limited to 30 photos at a time). Just open the link, load your photos, and send. The photos go to a drop box where I can retrieve them and upload on this website.

Also, Tommy edited the Skit videos and created a link to our very own youtube account. See permanent link in the right-hand margin.

And finally, I have added 100's of additional photos since yesterday. You will find them in albums you might have already looked at and others are in new albums. Just go to PHOTOS, click the album titles to view.

Glad you are enjoying the site.
