News- January 12, 2020

Greetings Band Parents and Mac Band Supporters,

Your Band Parent board got together last week to discuss some issues of concern to all MHS band parents: fundraising, volunteer wristbands, student payments, etc. This Tuesday at 7:00 p.m. in the High School Library, we’ll be following up and sharing details of that discussion and diving in to the Winter Guard and Winter Percussion programs. I hope to see you there!

Winter Guard Prop Build

This Saturday at 10:00 a.m. you are invited to come join us at the High School to help build the prop for this year’s Winter Guard show. To my knowledge, the theme is still a secret so I’m not going to say anything more about the prop other than pvc pipes, plywood, and paint. Of course, we could build all kinds of props out of pvc pipes, plywood, and paint, so if you miss the work party, you’ll have to remain curious until the Guard Parent Premier Show on January 31st.



Jazz Night Fundraiser
Remember, Saturday, January 25th is the date for this year’s Jazz Night – an evening of music, food, and festivities. The MHS Jazz Band, the Twilighters, and other student ensembles will provide the entertainment, Rogue Gourmet Catering provides the dinner, and local businesses and organizations provide an assortment of auction items.

Jazz Night is the main fundraiser for the McMinnville Music Boosters (which the McMinnville Band Parent Organization is a part of.) This event helps provide a large part of the funds for the MHS Band program.

There are lots of ways you can help:

* Donate an item for the silent auction (reply to this email or text me at 971-901-6477)

* Lend a hand before, during or after the event. Here’s the link to the sign up sheet.

* Buy tickets and come enjoy the evening (click here to get tickets)

See you at meeting on Tuesday (weather permitting),
Brian Bailey
McMinnville Band Parent Organization
