Drinks and Snacks needed for band camp 8/14-8/18

posted Aug 9, 2017, 7:53 PM by EPIMC Admin   [ updated Aug 14, 2017, 8:18 PM ]

Hello Band Parents!! Welcome to the 2017 Season!!

Band Camp is right around the corner and the band members need to stay hydrated during the long hours of practice. We will have several water coolers filled with ice water on hand to refill water bottles, but we are also asking for water and bags of ice each day to have chest coolers filled with bottles for the band to grab during break. In addition, we would like to have fresh fruit and bags of chips as quick grab-and-go snacks during the week.  Band members are to bring their own lunch and water bottles every day.
Friday’s pizza dinner will be provided courtesy of the EPIMC (the band booster organization) but we are asking for donations of paper plates, napkins, and drinks.
This year we are lucky to be meeting earlier in the day so that the band can go home for dinner so we as band parents are “off the hook” for providing salads, drinks, hot dogs, hamburgers, mac and cheese, pulled pork, etc. etc. etc. during the week. So our hope is that the slots on our Sign Up Genius (link below) get filled up quickly and that we get full participation!!  Such a super easy way to show the kids and the staff our appreciation for all their hard work!! 
Please drop off donations by 7am at LMMS. We will have a table set up and coolers on hand! Thank you!!!!

Volunteers Needed

Good Afternoon Band Parents,

It is hard to believe that BAND CAMP starts in 9 DAYS, and the 1st HOME FOOTBALL GAME is in 3 WEEKS.

The Band Booster Club is a much needed organization to help raise funds, chaperone, transport equipment, etc for our hard working marching band students through out the marching season and the school year.
 
Many Parent Volunteers are needed to support the EHS Band programs.
Volunteer Positions are needed for: Cooresponding Secretary / Volunteer Coordinator
                                                         BandStand Coordinator
                                                         Equipment Truck Driver
                                                         Fundraiser Coordinator
If you would like to volunteer for any of these volunteer positions, please let myself or Mr. Harrington know as soon as possible.
The BandStand at all of the home football games, is the biggest fundraiser for the band programs.  Last year the bandstand raised approx $ 10,000.  Many parent volunteers are needed for the success of the bandstand.

Also, if anyone would like to volunteer for the positions of the EPIMC Board as President, Vice President, and Recording Secretary please let us know.  There is written time line/ responsibility paper work for all of these positions available.

Regards,
Donna
