Important Spring Dates

Greetings, With the school year coming to a close, we are busy planning for the end of this season and also looking ahead to next year. As such, there are a few events that you should be aware of: We have been asked to run our concession stand for 3 events this spring – the 2015 Track League Meet on May 12, 2015 District Softball tournament on May 30, and the 2015 Lamphere Car Show on June 14. We are excited for these invites as concessions are a great source of income for the Band Booster program. However, we need help for all three events in order to make this work. Please consider helping us for a shift at one of more of these events. Just follow the link to our Signup Genius sheets and sign up for the times you are available. If you have any questions, contact Donna Kosnak at donna.kosnak@lampherebands.org or 586.484.9408. Sign Up Now! Our next Booster Meeting will be on Tuesday, April 28 at 7:00 PM in the Lamphere band Room. Nominations for the 2015/2016 Band Booster officers will be open at this time. We will have vacancies in the board positions next year and need some people to get more involved and to help move our organization forward. Please consider if you are the right fit for one of the officer positions, or if there is someone you know that may want the opportunity. If you have any questions, please contact a current officer or Mr. or Mrs. Garvey. Elections will take place at our May meeting. Now on to planning for next year: Mark you calendars – there will be an informational picnic / meeting for all current and potential marching band families on Thursday, May 7th. This will be an open event for parents, students and their siblings to be able to get information and ask questions regarding the marching band season. Band Boosters will be grilling up some hot dogs to fill your bellies during the meeting. More information will be coming out in the Marching Band packet later this week. Get ready for the 16th Annual Lamphere Invitational marching band competition! We are fortunate that we were selected to be the only host in the state for the first week of the competition season on Saturday, 26. We are just beginning to plan for this event and have bands starting to register. We will need help from ALL our band families to make this another successful event. Watch for more information over the summer months regarding this important fundraiser. If you have any questions regarding any of these events, feel free to contact me at john.kosnak@lampherebands.org or call 313.304.3146. I hope to see you this spring. John Kosnak
