Thank you to all who brought their bottles and cans this past Saturday.  We will be arranging to have those turned into cash revenue at the West Haven Recycling Center this week.


Upcoming Fundraisers:

26-Feb-16:  Pasta & Jazz, 6:00 – 9:00pm, CHS Cafeteria

6-Mar-16:  Spring Train Show, 10:00am – 3:00pm, CHS Commons, Cafeteria, East Gym


Pasta and Jazz is less than two weeks away.  Karen Andes sent an update email the other day – you can find it posted on ramband.com.  Please volunteer some of your time to be a sub-coordinator, to man the serving tables and/or contribute needed supplies for the event here:

Spring Train Show is just three weeks from now (several important fundraisers within a short period, I know, but after Spring Train Show, there will a break for a while).   


Maura Murcko is once again the Head Coordinator for the Spring Train Show, working with several parent sub-coordinators and Mr. Tom Kotulski as the long-time coordinator for all of the model train vendors who come from far reaching places to sell and show their stuff.  We did a bit better with net revenue than expected for the Fall Train Show, have a had a several planning committee meetings since then, and hope to have tweaked the plan a bit so we’re at least as successful this time around.


Again, we cannot execute our fundraisers without parent and student volunteers.  There are plenty of available slots yet to be filled.  Please come and join the fun and help us put on the show.


For STUDENT VOLUNTEERS, there will be a sign-up sheet in the Band Room.


For PARENT VOLUNTEERS, there is a Sign-Up Genius here:  http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0f4baeaa2aa4ff2-362016
