The Disney trip is finally here. Thanks to
all of the chaperones; it couldn't happen without you. Everyone be safe and
enjoy the week! When you return we will focus on the Gala, which is
scheduled for Thursday, May 28 at the Carolina Theater.
You can help with the Gala now by:
Asking businesses and corporations (where
you work) if they would like to be a corporate sponsor for our concert.
If so, please let Virginia Taylor know and she will follow up.
Soliciting ads from businesses you
patronize. This is easy and many businesses are happy to do it because
the price is right and the ad will reach over 800 people! You will need
the Community Business Leader letter and the Program Ad sheet from the
website. Print them up and carry them with you. We have already asked
many businesses; that list will be posted to the website.
Buying an ad for your child. Senior
parents may especially want to do this. See the Program Ad sheet on the
website for more information. All ads are due by Friday, May 1.
Donating items for our raffle and auction. In the
past we have had a week at a beach house, sports tickets, etc. All
donations are tax-deductible. Please contact Paige Cragg with any
raffle/auction questions at
Selling tickets! We will begin ticket
sales after Spring Break. We have a total of 800 tickets to sell, which
averages out to 7 per student. Be thinking now about who you can sell
tickets to. We'd like the students to play to a sell-out crowd. Prices
will be $15 for adults, $10 for children, students, senior adults (65+),
Jordan faculty and staff. Children under 5 will be free.
(You do not need to get a ticket for your band student.)
Signing-up to volunteer the night of the Gala.
Volunteers will be needed to sell raffle tickets, distribute programs
and help with chaperoning. No one will miss their child perform. Contact

The next meeting for the Gala Planning
Committee will be Thursday, April 30th at 6 p.m. in the band room.
Anyone interested in helping with the Gala is welcome to join us.
A nominating committee is in the process of developing a
slate of officers for next year's booster board. If you are interested in
being on the board, please contact a member of the nominating committee
before the Spring Break Trip. Nominating committee members include Andy
Weiss, Virginia Taylor, Leigh Laurent and Julie Frybarger.
All HONEY BAKED HAM GIFT CERTIFICATES
have been sold and the band made a $160 profit. Thanks to the owner of Honey
Baked Ham who allowed Aaron Kreizman and Shelby Cragg to stand outside the
business and sell the remaining certificates. Remember that the
certificates do not expire and you can find promotions and order online at
their website (honeybaked.com). Thanks to Paige Cragg for organizing.
