Holiday Message from our Booster Co-Presidents

We would like to wish our band family a very happy holiday season. We have really enjoyed working with the MANY parents who have helped with band fundraisers and activities this past fall. In this strange year, catching up with friends (old and new) at band booster meetings became a highlight of the semester.

As we look to the New Year, we are grateful that the students have been able to begin rehearsals and we are hopeful for more opportunities for live music in the future! We will pause our newsletter for now and will be back in January. In the meantime, we wish everyone a happy and healthy New Year!

Fruit and Nut Wrap Up

Thanks to everyone who sold and ordered fruit this year and to everyone who moved it! Once again we did what we do best as a band community. We all pitched in and went with the flow to make things happen, and this year's sale was a success. Credits for your sales will be applied to accounts after the holidays. We still have two boxes of mandarins and some nuts available for purchase at the Dewey's store. Please email us if you want us to set something aside for you.

Dewey's - one more week to go!

The Dewey's store closes for the season in just one week! It has been nice to have a hub for band members to see each other and help keep the wheels turning while we're not able to conduct our normal activities. Thanks to everyone who has worked to make our second year successful and safe in this crazy time! Many brand new band families got their feet wet with this fundraiser! This year's store added new communication and shopping options for our customers, and we had some record breaking sales days. We'll update you in the new year regarding our sales numbers. Have a safe and happy holiday break!
