News – July 7, 2019

Greetings Band Parents and Mac Band Supporters,

There is a Band Parent Meeting this Tuesday, July 9th @ 7:00 p.m. Because of the construction at the high school, the meeting will be held at Incahoots (905 N Baker Street) – please enter through the gate nearest to Mac Auto Supply. We’ll be focusing on all things Band Camp and splitting up into groups to get some plans in place. If you can help in any way with Band Camp (before, during, or after), please bring your ideas and enthusiasm.

Fiery Drums
Last Friday’s Drums of Fire show was simply amazing and it was great to see all the parents and students who made the trip up to Camas to absorb the music. Before and after the drum corps performances, we got a little time to visit with Nick (our Mac Band percussion instructor who is currently touring with the Blue Knights) and we even ran into Corinne (our former Mac Band guard instructor who is now working with the Seattle Cascades). If you’ve never been to see a live DCI Show, be sure to put it on your calendar for next July (or if you can’t wait that long, just start driving east until you find one.) The photo is of The Battalion out of Utah.

Leading the Way

We didn’t receive an overabundance of nominations for Officers for the McMinnville Band Parent Organization, but we did receive just enough to make up the board for the 2019-2020 school year. (Actually we received more than enough, but some of the nominees respectfully declined the offer to serve.) After some discussion, it was decided that instead of voting online, a vote will be taken at Tuesday’s meeting. Also, to better reflect the duties of the position, there is a proposal to change the title of Treasurer to Student Accounts.

The proposed board is as follow:
President – Brian Bailey
Vice President – Owen Andrus
Secretary – Rochelle Andrus
Student Accounts – Jamie Akers
