Dear Band Parents and Students:


Congratulations on your awesome performance at Nationals on Saturday -- so proud of our CHS Ram Band!


Now is the time to think about our Train Show fundraiser this coming Sunday, November 19th.  We need volunteers!




All Aboard!  The Fall Train Show is coming up November 19th, the Sunday after National, chaired by Sue Mellitt.  This is our November Fundraiser and it is one of our best.  We do need parent and student volunteers:


Parents:  Please visit the Fall Train Show signup.  We need parents and students for set-up on Saturday evening.  On Sunday, we need cooks, servers and cashiers in the kitchen, ticketing at the gate, a coordinator to assist the train vendors with set up, and someone to assist Santa and Mrs. Claus.  We are also asking for donations of water, soda and Gatorade -- this is an easy way to help.  Please sign up early!  Lastly -- Bake Sale -- we sell baked goods at our Train Shows.  Please bring a tray of goodies -- we make 100% profit for the band.  Please follow these guidelines.


Students:  There are paper sign-ups in the Band Room.  You can earn community service hours and new this year - for any block of hours that you volunteer at a BPA event throughout the year, you will be entered into a raffle drawing for a $100 gift card at the end of the school year.  Please sign up to help the vendors set up and break down, take their food orders, and to do anything else the parent coordinators may need you to do to help us run the fundraiser and earn money for your Band Programs.  Thank you!


As always, you can always easily access all correspondence in the Recent Announcements section on the home page www.ramband.com, and access all volunteer sign-ups for upcoming BPA Fundraisers by clicking the red Volunteer button.  Check out the Marching Ram Band tab for schedules, scores, videos and other fun stuff, including our historical archive.  There's loads of information about the Band Parents' Association and the Ram Band on our website.  Check it out!


If you have any questions, please contact Sue Mellitt sue.mellitt@macdermid.com or 203-577-8914.  I look forward to see you next weekend!


Thank you for all you do for our students and Go Ram Band!
