News – July 22, 2018

Greetings Band Parents and Mac Band Supporters,

Schedule Update: Contrary to the ‘Marching Band Schedule’ that’s posted on the Mac Band website, there will NOT be an Open Band Room this Tuesday, July 24th. Please encourage your students to keep practicing and playing throughout the summer. Remember, an embouchure is a terrible thing to waste.


New Facebook Page
Because the Mighty Mac Band facebook page we’ve been using is private for parents and students, we ran into some limitations when trying to post sponsor ‘Thank Yous’. To solve this problem and to give us a place to post information about the band that would be of more general interest to the community, a new public Mac Band facebook page has been created. Please add your input (post, like, share, and react as appropriate) and if you don’t have access to the private page, just send a request or reply to this email and we’ll get you on the list.

More Thanks
I unfortunately left out a few names last week when mentioning sponsors of the recent Get the Ball Rolling fundraiser. Here are a few more of our wonderful community of supporters.

Thanks to Builder’s First Source for the use of materials to create the course and to ShopLocal Magazine for continuing to help us raise awareness of the growing Mac Band program.

Thanks also go to Umpqua Bank for providing the Ice Cream and to the MHS Jazz Band for providing the music.

Hope you’re enjoying the summer,
Brian Bailey
McMinnville Band Parent Organization
