WMPA Newsletter 9-26

Hello fellow band parents!!

Our next meeting will be Tuesday October 9th at 6pm in the HS Cafeteria.  Our annual band banquet will be held on Sunday April 28th at Faith Lutheran Church on MacArthur Rd.  Mark your calendars!

Date is Sat 10/20. Please visit this link to find out how you can help.  Remember, you don't need to be an MZB parent to help.  Anyone reliable over 16 yrs can help.  Know someone who needs volunteer hours?  I'll sign off for them!  Donation list will be sent out separately. https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0c44a5a822aaf58-2018

Thank you to everyone who sent something in. WE NEED HELP SENIOR NIGHT!  Many of the normal volunteers are senior parents and wont be able to help.  Please if you have some time that night please sign up to help on October 19th!
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 drive please sign up here  ... https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0c44a5a822aaf58-truck1
