News and Notes
We have a fireworks booth reserved for this coming July 4th… but it’s not just July 4th, it is June 30 – July 4. And we need YOUR HELP! We are specifically looking for folks to man four hour shifts, round the clock. That includes overnight on site, and all day until the night of the Fourth. Specific work shifts and sign ups can be found here.
If you have an RV that we can borrow for the duration, we would certainly appreciate it!
END-OF-YEAR AWARDS BANQUET
Monday, June 3 at Knotts Berry Farm Hotel. Tickets are $30 per person, and include all you can eat Mrs Knotts chicken dinner, awards, video, and parking. Flyers available in the band room; forms and money are due Thursday, May 30.
Nominees for board positions have been posted on the “About Us” page. There are still a few positions open, please take a look and consider how you can join in running our great Powerhouse Program! Position information and responsibilities are spelled out, but you may always ask for more information from a current member. If you still aren’t sure, feel free to step in to assist in a position, it’s a great way to learn and help at the same time. Plan to attend the June parent meeting for voting in these nominees – booster members in good standing only may vote.
NEW TEXT MESSAGE SERVICE
“Can you send me a text reminder?” We have just started a new text message notification service – a great way for everyone to get the latest updates on any schedule changes, reminders, and urgent information.
To sign up, text “@mrbelsk” to (310) 299-8226 from the cell number you want to receive band information alerts. (Yes, leave the letter “i” off of the name and don’t use any quotation marks.) Any phone with text capability will work. Smartphones and data plans are not required. A automatic reply message will be sent asking for your full name. Reply with that information and you’re all set up. The plan is to keep it down to 1 or 2 texts per week at the most. Send the text and get signed up right away!!!
Fair Share payments
If you have an outstanding balance on your fair shares, please take care of them ASAP. Student accounts with overdue balances have been emailed out – if you have not seen one in your inbox, please send us a note with your current email address. We cannot support our POWERHOUSE PROGRAM without everyone’s support.
Your commitment to our program is vital; please visit the Powerhouse Program page to get further details on payment levels. Contact us with any questions you have, and be sure to come to the parent meetings scheduled for the first Thursday of every month.
