    • All band parents are band boosters; we look forward to seeing you there!

 

  1. ISSMA ORGANIZATIONAL CONTEST FOR ALL BANDS
  1. INSTRUMENT DONATION REQUEST
  • Do you have an old instrument in good condition laying around that is not being used? If so, Mr. Wallis is coordinating a campaign to donate gently used instruments to a music mission in Thailand.
    • A good friend of Mr. Wallis is a missionary in Thailand, teaching English and most recently a band class! These students are from a poor town and cannot afford the cost of instruments. Current needs are trumpets, flutes, and woodwind accessories such as reeds, cork grease, etc. Contact Mr. Wallis at thomaswallis@msdlt.k12.in.us with questions.

 

  1. SQUEALERS BARBEQUE GRILL DINE TO DONATE

 

  1. STUTZ ART FAIR FUNDRAISING OPPORTUNITY

  1. RUMMAGE SALE

    • Please start collecting your gently used clothing and household items, we will be posting collection dates and times soon.
    • This is a HUGE general fundraiser for the entire band program, which requires everyone to step up to help. Thank you for your support!

 

  1. BREAKFAST SALE FUNDRAISER
  • Sign up for shifts through the CERVIS volunteer link at www.LNband.com.  There are plenty to choose from!
    • The final testing window is approaching which means Gayle will not be able to work the breakfast table from April 17 through May 17. 
    • It is important that we have 3 people signed up to work each day.  This ensures that the sale goes smoothly and there will be at least 2 people still available should something come up last minute for any volunteer.
    • Previous Volunteers, plase check your calendars to see when you can help.  If you have never worked but want to help, there is always at least one experienced person working.  Sign up and have fun learning how we serve the early morning snack needs of the LN student body.
