BAND BOOSTERS UPDATES

LAPTOP NEEDED

Do you have a laptop computer that you no longer use or need? RHS Band needs a laptop for our treasury and accounting to replace one that is rapidly dying. The laptop does not need to be very new or powerful, just reliable. (It should be able to run Windows 10.) If you have one you can donate, contact Aimee Christian at treasurer@roswellband.com.
