It's time to say Thank You to our directors!
Let’s show our directors some love and appreciation for all the work they put into making this year a success! Our kids have grown and we have all had a lot of fun making memories together.
Donations can be made via venmo @Melia-Lesko, via paypal firstname.lastname@example.org , Cash or check can be dropped off in the blue box in the band room office (please mark the envelope “directors gifts” and make checks payable to Melia Lesko). Melia will also be available at the May 1st concert to receive your donations personally. Please make donations by Monday May 8. Thanks in advance for your generosity.
On Wednesday May 10 and Friday May 12 we have opportunities to volunteer in concessions! Our freshman, JV, and Varsity football teams will be having their spring games. This is a wonderful opportunity for our program to make money!
