News – January 19, 2020

Greetings Band Parents and Mac Band Supporters,

Jazz Night is this Saturday, and today (Sunday, January 19th) is the final day to get your tickets.

The MHS Jazz Band, the Twilighters, and other student ensembles will be providing the entertainment, Rogue Gourmet Catering will be serving dinner, and you’ll have the chance to bid on a variety of items from local businesses and organizations.

Jazz Night is the main fundraiser for the McMinnville Music Boosters and this event helps provide a large part of the funds for the Music programs throughout the McMinnville school district.

Remember, we need your RSVP today. Just click here to get tickets

If you’d like to join the fun and lend a hand before, during or after the event. Here’s the link to the Jazz Night Volunteer Sign Up Sheet.

Opportunities Ahead

And speaking of volunteering, the Winter Guard competition season begins on Saturday, February 1st in Tigard and Winter Percussion starts on Saturday, February 15th in Forest Grove. Both of these groups will need some parental assistance.

From driving to cooking to moving props and just being around to help as needed, you are invited to be a part of these exciting programs. We’ll be sending out Sign-up Sheets next weekend, so be sure to keep your Saturdays open!
