The Christmas Concert is approaching QUICKLY
Our Christmas Concert is just around the corner - and the weather seems to delight in showing us what a real "White Christmas" looks like! 
We will be playing at Lakeview United Church, including a number with the organist. The concert starts at 7pm.

Members should be there at 6 to tune and set up.  Please bring one dozen dainties [NUT FREE, please] for the intermission refreshments, and wear all black.
After the concert, please help with cleaning up and moving the equipment - many hands DO make light work! 
In a departure from tradition, there will be no social following the concert.  However there are reservations at the   Last Straw for Wednesday, December 8 for those who want to celebrate beating the cold. 
Church Service Performance - Sunday, December 23
Lakeview United Church has invited us to perfrom during their service on Sunday, December 12. Please be at the church by 9:30 to set up and tune.  We will play from 10:00 to 10:30 before the service, which starts at 10:30, as well as some hymns during the service. Please wear all black.   

Regular Reminders:   
Please contact your band director if you are unable to attend rehearsal.
