The Word…September 18-22

Just a reminder that we do NOT have a contest this weekend. We cancelled for this weekend due to volleyball and soccer conflicts. Our first contest will be Saturday, 9/30 at Columbus Grove HS. I will provide details as soon as they let us know our performance time.

This is a reminder that your band fees were due by the end of band camp.  New member fee is $55.00 and covers the cost of shoes, shorts and t-shirt.  All upper-classmen owe a $30.00 maintenance fee to cover cleaning of uniform and the new black shoes. Extra shirts and shorts are $12 each. We can also arrange an installment payment plan, but you need to contact Mrs. Preisner.


Volunteer Opportunities for Parents

Our Band Boosters play a very important role in the success of our band. We need volunteers to help with concessions at Swanton Fireworks, Coupon Card sale (August/September), Corn Festival Duck Race (August), the fruit sale (September/November), football concessions, and sideline help at contests. Please contact Libby Silveous at (419) 327-7204.
