Ballard Band Bugle – May 16, 2017

Hello, Ballard Band Nation! Just a few things this week, so switching our format for the Bugle – hope you don’t mind!

 “Spring Fling” Concert Thursday Night – 7:00 Fine Arts Center

Please join us for our final concert of the 2016/2017 Season on Thursday Night in the FAC! We will celebrate our Wind Ensemble and Symphonic Band successes and say goodbye to our Seniors as they begin their transition from high school to college students.

 Band Banquet Thank Yous

Thank you to everyone who came to the Banquet on Friday night – the food was wonderful and the company even better! We appreciate all that our awesome parents do for our children, but wanted to especially thank Laura and Mark Cooksey, for helping secure and set up the venue, and Belinda King and Oberer’s Flowers, for the beautiful flower centerpieces.  

 Kick Off Meeting Reminders

Thank you to all of our volunteers for the Kick Off Meeting! For anyone who attended (or couldn't make it) - don’t forget to turn in your paperwork for next year’s band season if you haven’t already! If you weren’t able to make the Kickoff Meeting we will be sending Ballard Band Handbook out via email at a later time and copies will be available at the Spring Fling concert on Thursday. Please turn this paperwork in as soon as possible so we may update your information and make sure you get the emails over the summer as we prepare for Marching Band Camp and the beginning of the 2017/2018 school year.  Please also remember that this year’s dues need to be up-to-date before we can accept payment for next year.

 Easy Fundraiser – Amazon Smile

Did you know that the Ballard Band (through the Boosters) is a registered non-profit? This makes us eligible for fundraising programs through many areas, including Amazon Smile! This is a very easy fundraiser as it takes just using an assigned link and the Ballard band will receive 0.5% of every purchase made! Even once your child graduates you can still continue to benefit the band program as you can use this link to rent or buy college textbooks (trust me, Amazon has most of the best prices).

 For Amazon Smile, please use this link to process your Amazon purchases: This link will also work with your “Amazon Prime” membership, but the purchases only benefit the band if they are made using this link.  The first time you log on with the link Amazon gives you a “button” to bookmark the page and then you are all set!


Special Thank You from Patrick & Lynn

Patrick and Lynn wanted to send out a special “Thank You” to our Ballard Band Families for the donations to the gifts at the banquet. They wanted to be sure to let everyone know how much they appreciated the thoughts and gestures.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

As the year ends, the Booster Board wants to again say “Thank You” for all you have done for your children this year! We may seem like we are always reaching out for volunteers (and we are) but at the end of the day we are really asking for you to help your children and their friends, and we all appreciate it so much.  We hope you have a fun and safe summer and can’t wait to see you in July!
