(your dreams were your ticket out / welcome back, to that same old place that you laughed about, / well the names have all changed since you hung around / but those dreams have remained and they've turned around / who'd have thought they'd lead ya / back here where we need ya ...) 

Anyway, where were we?  Oh yes...

Housekeeping Notes
The band director at Thom Collegiate has asked that we stack the stacking chairs, as well as put away the music stands, at the end of the evening - many hands make light work for these small things we can do to help others! 
For regular rehearsals, please let us know if you are unable to attend.  
Fees will be due either all at the end of October, or half in October and half in January. 

Fundraising
We have an opportunity for some fundraising around the Heritage Classic hockey game - see your email for details. 
We have a regular monthly 50-50 draw as well - our first one this season will be September 25 - and tickets are 1/$2 or 3/$5. We use the proceeds to buy music and small auxiliary percussion items as needed.

How rusty are you?

And how dusty is the instrument? 

It's getting to that time of year, when we dust things off and get back to making music! 
Our first rehearsal this fall will be on September 11 - at 6:30 pm for the Intermediate group, and 8:00 pm for the Senior group.
We are again using the Music Room at Thom Collegiate. 

With the date, time, and location, all we need is ... YOU - and/or your friends, co-workers, co-conspirators, co-habitants, etc etc. 

Attached is a handy poster you can put up to let folks know who we are and where we meet - maybe we'll get some new faces, or even some old faces back again!
