HAPPY THANKSGIVING and welcome back! I hope everyone enjoyed your week off! Time to throw ourselves into the race and book it over the next three weeks which are the last three weeks of the semester. Can you believe it? Please make sure you take good care of watching the calendar as there are several events occurring over the next two weeks.
This Friday is the Light up Milton Christmas parade in which the Jazz Band will be performing. The BPA is in need of volunteers to help sale concessions at this event. Please CLICK HERE to sign up to help.
The big Milton Christmas Parade is this Saturday. Please take note in the itinerary below that the band hall will be unlocked from 4pm-4:45. You can grab your instrument during that time. No, you will NOT be able to get it after 4:45. We will be in full uniform minus helmets for the parade. Please wear a Christmas hat in place of helmets. I also encourage you to decorate your horn and/or yourself! The brighter, the better. Just make sure you can play and march! We will meet at the empty lot by the skate park at Byrom Street. Just follow the noise! The parade will go straight down Stewart Street and end at Margaret Street Church of Christ. We will have the band truck there to put instruments on as needed.
The Christmas concert is next Thursday the 12th at 6:30. Please start making plans now to attend this FREE concert. This will be a great time to get into the holiday spirit.
Finally, if you are an avid Amazon shopper, please consider using the Amazon Smile account to place orders. For every order made through this, Amazon will donate a percentage of that order to the BPA and, in turn, the MHS Band. Please CLICK HERE for more info and the Amazon link.
That is all for now. I hope you have a wonderful week.
