Greetings Band Parents and Mac Band Supporters,

The floor has been painted and the Winter Percussion will be leaping back into the competition this Saturday at the Sherwood Winter Showcase.

As always, parents are welcome and encouraged to help with food, transportation, and moving instruments and equipment. Here’s the sign-up sheet to volunteer.




Columbia River Winter Arts Invitational
The Mac Pride Winter Guard turned in a couple more outstanding performances in St. Helens yesterday at the Columbia River Winter Arts Invitational. For their second competition of the season, they increased their scores big time and finished second in their division. Congratulations!



Write Us In Reminder

If you are a customer of First Federal, you probably received a ballot in the mail asking for your vote on how they allocate donations to local non-profits. You may have noticed that the McMinnville Music Boosters is not on the list.

Please help us get there by going to the bottom of the ballot and checking the box that says “I’d like to nominate a new organization.”
Write in “McMinnville Music Boosters” and for the address, write in “1271 NE Hwy 99W #161”

If we can get 10 write-ins, we will receive a contribution and will be included on next year’s list.

Any contributions from this program will be earmarked for the Band Parent Organization.

Ballots must be mailed by February 29th.

P. S. If you need additional ballots, you can pick them up at any branch
