OUTSTANDING job to all with the performance this past Friday at Niceville. We received SEVERAL compliments from members of the Niceville band and audience members. Good job to all. We still have work to do, but we are on a good path. Keep it up everyone :-)
MoneyDolly FR - This Tuesday, our MoneyDolly rep will be here at 6pm to kickoff this online fundraiser. For those that were in the band last year, you may remember we sold beef jerky and popcorn as well as earned donations with this app. This is the same thing only this time, buyers can purchase discount and BOGO cards to local and regional businesses. Students will need to download the MoneyDolly app to their phones. Our rep will explain more and answer questions tomorrow.
BPA Dinner this Friday - The BPA is once again offering dinner for all band students this Friday 3:30-4:30 in room 131. They will be making "walking" tacos. These are tacos in a cup. I encourage all students to partake in this so you do not get caught up in long lines around town before call time.
BPA Yardsale - This Saturday, the BPA will be having a yardsale at the Ollie's parking lot beginning at 8am. If you have any items you'd like to donate, please contact Scottie Armstrong at firstname.lastname@example.org. All Proceeds will go back to the BPA to help supply the band with updated equipment and such.
All-State Auditions - the FBA All-State auditions are Saturday, September 16th at Milton HS. We are in need of student help for various tasks on that day. Students may receive volunteer hours for this. Their are 2 shifts available 8am-12:30pm & 12:30pm-5pm. I will post a sign-up sheet on the Instrument room door. Please consider helping out. Also, GOOD LUCK to all of our All-State auditioners :-)
Blackwater Classic - Nicole Humber and Arlene Wires, co-chairs of the Blackwater Classic Committee has posted all volunteer opportunities for the Blackwater Classic. This is our home marching band competition that is being held on Saturday, October 7th here at MHS. The MB&G will watch bands all day and perform at exhibition at the end. Parents, we need your help to make this event a success. Please CLICK HERE to view all opportunities for that day. We will be adding the concessions sign-up soon as well. If you would like to be a part of the BC committee, you can. Please email Nicole Humber at email@example.com or Arlene Wires at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
