New Season, New Music!!

Now that we've met a couple times, including the annual coffee and cookie break last week, it's time to start concentrating on the music - and we do have some new pieces.

There was an announcement sheet last week, so for those who weren't there, or for those who recycled it already (gotta love the blue bins!), here are some reminders...

Don't forget, if you can't make it to rehearsal, a phone call or email would be greatly appreciated by your directors! 

Fees
Fees are due by October 23rd if you're paying for the whole year at once, or for those on the instalment plan, the first payment is due by October 23rd, and the second is due by January 8th.
There is no additional fee for being in both Intermediate and Senior band.
For your info, our fees go toward: directors' salaries, facilities rental, music and photocopying, clinicians, percussion usage, advertising, promotions, and administrative costs such as postage.

Fundraising
"Tackled - A Football Play" at Applause Dinner Theatre on Saturday, September 26th
This is our major fundraiser for the year, so your support, through either, or both, attendance or donations to the raffle tables, is needed. 
The $60 cost covers the buffet dinner with coffee or tea, and a two act musical comedy.  There are door prizes and the raffle tables, and a 50-50 draw.  Fun, food, friends - and football - what more do you need on a Saturday night?
