WMPA Newsletter 9-19

Hello fellow band parents!!

Our next meeting will be Tuesday October 9th at 6pm in the HS Cafeteria.

Donations were amazing for this past game!  Thank you to everyone who sent something in.  Our expenses were cut down to 1/3 of what we spent last time giving us more money to pay the staff.  We can't do it without you! 
Wherever the band goes their instruments need to go too.  We need to start training new parents so the students can continue to perform.  Its a box truck so you do not need a CDL license.  You pull a small trailer behind it with the gator strapped down.  The students load and unload so you do NO LIFTING at all.  Just drive.  You get into all the events for free too.  If you'd like to ride along with one of our current parents to see what it's like reach out to Cathy Haller.  If you'd like to drive please sign up here  ... https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0c44a5a822aaf58-truck1
