I want to thank all of you who attended the Panther Band performance and senior signing day last Tuesday night. This was a spectacular event starting with a wonderful performance and ending with some well-deserved student recognitions. If you don't receive the Press Gazette, you can go to their website and read the article they wrote about that night. I also want to thank the parents who volunteered to help at Scratch Ankle and Bands on Blackwater Friday night.
This week we have a HUGE event that we need lots of help at. The MHSBPA is hosting Milton's first Crawfish Festival on Saturday from 10am to 9pm at the band practice field. We have 5 bands including the MHS Jazz bands performing throughout the day, 26 venders (so far), BPA shish kabobs, and awesome crawfish. In order for this event to be a success, we need lots of parent and student help. Parents, please sign-up on Charms for one of 3 shifts. Student, I will post your sign-up in the band room on Monday morning. We will give both groups your specific job upon check-in on Saturday. All volunteers will need to go through the band room to check-in where you'll receive a special wristband and job title.
Please come to the BPA Meeting Tuesday at 7pm. We will be going over lots of information about the festival as well as band banquet, BPA elections, and more end-of-year events!!!!!!!!!!!!
Also, we will be hosting band spirit night at Firehouse Subs on Thursday. We have the potential of raising a lot of money simply by purchasing a meal and placing your receipt in the box at the register. Please come out Thursday, get a delicious sandwich, and support the MHS Band!
