Showers of Support—Shop 'n' Share and Other Ways to Help Band Boosters


Happy April!

While the weather may not feel much like Spring, things are in full bloom for Band Boosters. Here are some opportunities to help support our efforts:

Shop 'n' Share – The spring Shop 'n' Share event is this weekend, April 7-9 at Hy-Vee. By submitting the attached slip at the check-out when paying for your groceries, a portion of your purchase will be donated to the Boosters. Please share this with others who may not be on this list. The more people who participate, the more we can receive. Hy-Vee will donate 10% of the total sales, up to $1,000.

Photos for website – Heather McMeekan and Nancy Gruidl are revising the Band Boosters website and are in need of photos. If you have photos of any level of band students—High school, junior high, 6th grade, Jazz bands, Marching Bombers, ensembles, or band events—that would enhance our website, please share them with Nancy and Heather.

Grand Band Sweepstakes – If you're the parent of a current band member, keep selling those Grand Band Sweepstakes tickets. This year's proceeds will help purchase loaner instruments for beginning (6th grade) band students who are financially unable to obtain an instrument.

If your student has graduated or you're simply a supporter of youth music programs, consider buying tickets. They're $5 for one or $20 for 5. Grand prize is $1,000. Contact any current band parent or visit Terrill Title Co. on the Square to purchase your chances to win. The raffle is sponsored by Terrill Title, Citizen's Bank, Gelsosomo's and Robin Briney of Key Realtors. Thanks to everyone who's already purchased tickets!

Hang in there…warmer temperatures and sunshine are just around the corner (I hope!) :) Thanks for all your support of Band Boosters and our students.
