Hello Band Families,

Well done to each and every member of our Marching Band. The performance at the Douglas County Marching Band Invitational was great and the show is improving with each performance. Can’t wait for this Saturday.

Competition Food

Many thanks to the Trumpet and Clarinet families who contributed food and time for our meal at the Douglas County Festival! Also a shout out to our Grill Team for whipping up some delicious pancakes and sausages, despite the fierce wind (not a grill’s friend!!)

This coming week, it’s the Baritones and Mellophones turn. We will be serving tacos. Those families will be receiving a SignUpGenius invitation soon!

Butter Braids Orders & Money are due THIS THURSDAY!!

Butter Braid, Cookie Dough & Coda Coffee ORDERS & MONEY are due this coming THURSDAY, 10/10/19 after practice – **NOTE**This is 1 day later than previously stated!

The date to pick up your orders will be on Wednesday 10/23/19 at 6:30, right after practice. The pastries come to us frozen, so all orders need to be picked up that day and put into your freezer right away!  Please try to remember to bring a cooler to transport if you can.

Contact Robin Gear at rdriscollgear@yahoo.com or 720-212-4471 with any questions.
