The next General Booster Club Parent Meeting is this coming Tuesday, September 11 at 7:30 pm in the band room. Please attend to get the latest news about the upcoming Florida competition trip, Fulton County Marching Exhibition, and more!

Coupon Card Sale
This is the last week for our coupon card fundraiser. All cards and moneys are due at the latest on Friday, September 14. Our Blitz Day is scheduled on the calendar for Saturday, September 15. We would really like to cancel this, so please encourage your students to get out there and sell as many cards as possible before Friday!

Fulton County Marching Band Exhibition, Saturday, September 22
This fun and fabulous event is less than 2 weeks away!!! Folks from all over the county come to this event, and we need a plethora of volunteers to help us put on a great show for them. There are plenty of spots currently available in all the volunteer areas. Sign up now to get the one you want at!/showSignUp/20F0C4DAAAD29A7FC1-fulton.

Band Wear Update
Show shirts are currently on order with our vendor. We will be able to distribute these in approximately 1.5-2 weeks. Those students whose families ordered navy hoodies should have received them on Friday after school. If not, we will make sure they get them on Monday. Unfortunately, we did not come close to reaching the minimum order level required by our vendor for the light blue sweatshirts. We will be happy to refund payment to those families or apply payment to any outstanding fees in Charms.

The Bear Book
The Bear Book, formerly known as the football program, will hopefully be available at our next home game this coming Friday. The final proof looked fabulous, and it is currently at the printer. The price will be $15. We’d like to express a HUGE thank you to Gabriel Limon for taking on the monumental task of coordinating the production of the Bear Book at such a late date. Many thanks also to Melanie Hembree for coordination of the senior ads, Cherise Kelly and Cameron Congleton for making sure our sponsors and their ads were all lined up, and Karen Killebrew for fielding a multitude of questions from all about the whole process.

• The Florida trip payment for Marching Band was due on 8/31. Please pay this as soon as possible if you haven’t already; we have payments we need to make for the buses, the hotel, etc.

• We are asking our all our parents to volunteer for a minimum of 5 events this year. We are always in particular need of parents to help with FB concessions, equipment crew, and chaperones for away games. It really does take a small army of adults to keep a band program of our size and quality running smoothly, so sign up now!
