Highland Band Boosters Information for the 2011 Highland Marching Band Season

Emailed July 18, 2011 by Olga Eddy, Booster President

Hi Band Parents!
I am Olga Eddy, the Highland Band Booster President. Welcome back (to all the returning parents) and welcome to the new parents!  The 2011 Marching Band Season is just about to get underway! In the next few days you will be receiving a number of e-mails relating to Marching band (uniform sign-up, grocery card information, etc.). In order to have a successful season, we need your help.  There are several opportunities for you to volunteer your time and support the HHS Marching Band. I have attached the parent volunteer form, please look it over and complete and return it back to Mr. Bennett and someone will contact you.
At the moment, there are a couple of urgent needs for our band program:

Music and Arts Rental Nights
The Music and Arts provides a fundraising opportunity for band programs to earn credit to purchase much needed equipment from their stores.  The way the program works is the band boosters provide volunteers to assist the Music and Arts staff in renting instruments.  We will receive $50.00 credit per person, per rental night (Bi-lingual is $100).  All we have to do is attend a “Rental Night Training” and sign-up to help on specific rental nights throughout the Valley.  The Rental Night Training is scheduled for:

Date:  July 23, 2011
Time:  8:00 AM – 10:00 AM
Place: Music and Arts at Stapley & Baseline

In order for a person to participate in the rental nights you must attend the required training.  If you are interested in attending the training and helping out with the rental nights, please contact John Martin at jvm2233@aol.com as soon as possible.  Also, if you are interested but are not available for the training on Saturday the 23rd, please let us know and we will work with Music and Arts to get you trained.
