Greetings Ram Band Parents and Students,

The year is already shaping up to be very busy for BPA Fundraising and Volunteer efforts in support of the Marching Ram Band and Winter Programs.  We know you can’t participate all of the time – we all have busy schedules – but please participate when able.   You are able to see what is coming up on ramband.com!

We have approximately ten fundraisers being planned for the year.  Two of them are underway:

CAR SHOW, 27-August-2016 at CHS, 11:00am – 3:00pm

  • A new Fundraiser, chaired by Jeff Shankman, is our first Car Show in a number of years

  • We have been working all summer on the show, but we need to advertise so please spread the word

  • We need volunteers to pull it off.  Come to work or come to support!

  • Sign Up Here:  http://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090c4aa9aa2ea6fa7-82716


  • Launched last week.  Huge potential if we ALL pitch in and contribute.

  • Agnes Nawrocki is leading our efforts.  She’s already gotten us some high value Sponsorships – well done Agnes!  

  • Thanks to those of you who have already gotten involved… it’s a good start.

  • “Everyone knows someone who would support the band if simply asked.  We want you to please ask.”

  • There are nearly 1,400 businesses in and around Cheshire and we will be expanding the lists of businesses with three additional Sign-Ups very soon. You are our foot soldiers – please sign up for at least 5 businesses – then go sell the band!

Help me build out our Fundraising Committee:

  • Go to the Fundraising Tool Box to learn more:  http://www.ramband.com/band-parents-association/fundraising.

  • Become a fundraising chairperson! Please let me know if you are interested!

  • I need people to help with Publicity and Sign Making/Painting.  Please let me know if you can be my right-hand for any of these easy tasks.

  • Check in frequently and be on the lookout for new Volunteer Sign-Up opportunities. All fundraiser launch emails will have a link to a specific volunteer Sign-Up Genius.  Sign up and commit as often as you can – there are many roles to be filled.

  • Click Volunteer button on the top-left corner of ramband.com to get to the collection of fundraiser links.  

  • Volunteer early!  Volunteer often!

I hope to see you out there with us!  Go Ram Band!

Regards, Mark Nowicki
