Band Update – 2/25/16

Hello! Sorry for the delayed update this week:

A note about Dinner Auction:
M100 parents.
I am looking for parents to coordinate section baskets for the upcoming ABOB dinner auction.
You will need to decide on a theme and then collect donations from the section you represent.
Please help our students and ABOB support them during marching season and all year long.
Please email me at dvroman@live.com or call/text 560-3823.
Thanks!
Diane Vroman
