Hello!
Attached is the order form for our next fundraiser.

The pies and rolls are from Madeline's on Liberty.
This was a very popular fundraiser last year and we sold a ton of pies and rolls, everyone really enjoyed them! 
Order forms and money are due by 11/10/20. 
The pies can be picked up the Tuesday  before Thanksgiving, 11/24/2020. 
Depending on how many are ordered, I'm not sure if I will be able to deliver out of the back of my car, so more on pick up location and procedure to follow. 



UPCOMING: 
Filchner's wreaths and poinsettias coupon vouchers are up next and I will have order forms available in a few weeks for that -- so keep in mind if you like to decorate with fresh greens - their wreaths are very full and beautiful for the price! 
AND also a great gift idea --  Blue Mountain Candles with delivery dates before Christmas.
 
And if you are planning on purchasing gift cards for family members this holiday season, we participate in a program called SCRIPS.  They have tons of variety, national gift cards...Amazon, Walmart, Bed Bath Beyond, Restaurants etc...  
You purchase the gift cards from their site, have them shipped to you or email to you and MZB receives a portion of the sales. More to come on that!! 

Thank you all so much for participating in these fundraisers!!! We still have a way to go with raising the $3500 needed for covering staff expenses. If anyone has any ideas, I would love to talk with you! Please reach out!

Can't wait to see everyone at the zoom meeting we are having on November 5th!  I will be explaining the SCRIPS Gift card fundraising option at that time, and will be sending an email out about how to set up an account and purchase gift cards.

Thanks,
Deb Baer
WMPA Fundraising Coordinator.

MZB Facemask Fundraiser

MZB,

We have set up a fundraiser to purchase MZB protective face masks through the following website: https://www.mscfundraising.com/pages/whsmusic.  Since face masks and coverings will likely be with us for the foreseeable future, why not rep the MZB?  Please note that these specific masks are NOT required for members to purchase/wear.  Also note that it is highly likely that masks will need to be utilized at some point while doing the activity...so if you don't already have one, this could be a good option for you.

There are 2 different styles to choose from, and they are explained in this video from the sales company: 

What's the difference between the Commuter and Defender Masks?https://youtu.be/L64Gyacuyag

 
The WMPA receives 25% of each sale, and you can order as many as you like at any time.  All orders are filled individually and ship directly from the company.  

Please feel free to share the website/link above with family and friends!

Thank you!
Mr. Tanzos

2020 MZB Tentative Schedule

MZB Underclassmen,

Attached is the tentative "first draft" schedule for the 2020 MZB season for your reference and planning.  Some things are definitely subject to change, and we'll look to add some summer session dates in June/July as we get closer, but this at least gives you an idea of when and where things will likely be occurring.  
Please note that band camp will be starting AUGUST 10 -- so attendance from there on out is required.  If going away on family vacations, please consider scheduling them in June, July, or the first week of August.

I am not 100% sure of the parade dates at this time, so those (and some of the surrounding rehearsals) may change.  We will also take a vote of returning membership with regards to attending a competition on October 10 (which is also the Homecoming Dance), as this would be 2 consecutive weeks without a competition mid-season due to the Saturday football game the following week.  I'm good with either way -- so I'll leave it up to you all to decide as a poll question when we do officer voting in the spring.   

Thank you!
-Mr. Tanzos
