29-Oct-18: Fall Train Show

posted Oct 29, 2018, 8:10 AM by Mark Nowicki

Greetings Marching Band Parents and Students:

It’s a busy time of year and the best is yet to come for our Marching Band.  Watching our students perform at States and Nationals is something to be seen and it’s why I continue to work on behalf of the BPA to raise funds to ensure the band marches on.  We need your help, too!

Our Fall Train Show will be on Sunday, November 18th… three weeks out!  It is time to put on another great show to raise funds to support the Marching Ram Band and extracurricular Winter Programs.  

The Train Show is a long-standing tradition in our fundraising history.  Please click here to learn about the show:  TRAIN SHOW – WHAT IS IT?

Help us advertise - circulate this flyer.  The flyer can also be found on www.ramband.com by clicking the Train.  Please help.  Spread the word!

We need about 20 to 30 parents and students throughout the weekend to put on the show. Please go here to learn about what we need and to volunteer:  Train Show Sign Up.  Thank you to those of you who have signed up, but we need many more hands to make this show a success.

There are a variety of shifts and numerous roles to fill – cooks, servers and cashiers in the kitchen, gate admissions, a coordinator to assist the train vendors with set up – sign up for one or more that work for you.  We are also asking for donations of water, soda and Gatorade – this is an easy way to help.  Please get involved!

For students, as usual, paper sign-ups will be in the Band Room.  We need vendor assistants, Saturday set-up and Sunday clean-up helpers, and we need volunteers to assist Santa.  You will earn community service time, and remember, any student who volunteers for a BPA fundraiser during the year will be entered into a drawing for a $100 gift card at the end of the school year.  Please sign up as soon as possible.

There will be a Bake Sale.  Bakers – Engage!  We make 100% profit on donated baked goods, but we need baked goods to sell.  Bakers… please sign up to bring in a tray or basket of goodies to the show by 9:00am on Sunday morning.  Please consult these guidelines.

If you have any questions, please contact me chairman@ramband.com or Sue Mellitt at secretary@ramband.com

Come join the fun!  Thank you!

Warmest regards,

Laura Vuolo Rochford

Chairman, CHS BPA
