Band Booster Meeting Follow-Up

Last night we held our first Band Booster meeting of the year. Thank you to everyone for attending. The meeting minutes are not yet available, but here’s a quick run-down of the what took place in our meeting (for those families who were unable to attend last night):


Financial Summary

  • Current Balance – $2,264.61
  • Upcoming Expenses include T-Shirt Order, Florida Orchestra Trip Tickets, Band Website Renewal.


New Business

  1. We will be holding a Bowl-a-thon in October/November as our first fundraiser. Details will be coming soon.
  2. We will be purchasing a new Flute! This year we’ve had a few families who needed help with instruments. Unfortunately, every school Flute was deemed “beyond repair” by our repair companies. Buying this Flute guarantees every student has an instrument to play!
  3. We will be purchasing Pizza for the Beginning Band Field Trip to the Florida Orchestra on October 29th.
  4. Congratulations to our Allen Emery for becoming our Band Booster Vice President.
