What? It's almost Remembrance Day, already?
How can the time disappear like that?
We do have a couple new pieces for November 11, so please be sure to come to the November 7th rehearsal(s) as it's the last chance to go over them before the concert at Lakeview United Church on November 10th (see attached poster), and the service in Fort Qu'appelle on November 11th.
For both concerts, please wear all black (standard concert attire), and a poppy.
On November 10th, Senior band members should be at the church by 6pm. Note that there will be a poppy tray from the Legion at the door; if you need to take a poppy, please remember to leave a donation. We have permission from the church to have a donation box for the Legion at the concert as well.
On November 11th, please meet at the church by 8:15 am as we need to load the music stands and percussion equipment. The bus will leave at 8:30 am.
Because the Riders are hosting the semi-final, we will be returning to Regina right after the concert so the Pep Band members can get to the game.
Our fundraising dinner at Peg's Kitchen is also coming up fast - it's on November 16th! Please get your tickets as soon as possible, as there are a limited number at each seating (5;30 pm & 7:30 pm). Tickets are $25 for adults and
$10 for children - note that drinks are extra.
We will be raffling off the flute and clarinet lamps made by Brent - hopefully everyone will be able to sell a few tickets (available November 7th). The draw will be made at the Christmas concert, so there is some time to get them sold.
