New Year - new snow, new deep freeze!

Here we are again, with Winter putting in some extra effort on Wednesdays! As always, check your email before you leave, dress for the weather, and, please, drive carefully. 

We will be kicking things off with a 50-50 draw this Wednesday, so remember to dig out the loonies, toonies and five-spots when you come to Thom for rehearsal.  
Note that Jane will be away for several weeks, so Intermediate Band, please let Kim know if you can't be there! 
 
Upcoming: 
A Steak Night fundraiser is being organized - date and location to be announced. 
There will be no rehearsals during school breaks, so band is cancelled February 22nd and April 19th. While Thom is unavailable April 12th as well, we will be looking for an alternate space for that date.   
This year, Senior band will be playing at the Optimist Festival, so there will be no Intermediate band on March 22. We don't have our performance time yet, but have requested the latest possible - watch for updates! 

We have a tentative booking for March 12th - a rehearsal and concert with the Moose Jaw Adult band - updates to follow. 
And, our spring concert date has been set - 7 pm, Sunday April 30th, at Lakeview United Church. 

Reminders: 
Note that the second half fees are now due! 
Our fees are an important way to keep the organization going. The Hot Dog sale during the summer, and the 50/50 draws are our main other sources of funds, and there are still bills to pay, even when we don't get new music.
