Dear Band Parents and Students:


Congratulations on the stellar performance and placement at New England States, Ram Band! 


November is a busy month as the Marching Ram Band and Color Guard competitive season wraps up, but please don’t forget that we have our Train Show fundraiser tucked into the weekend after Nationals and just before the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.  Please visit the Fundraising page on www.ramband.com for the schedule of events for the year for and a listing of committee chairmen.  For newer parents, please consider which event or committee you could volunteer to chair in the future to relieve a senior/graduating parent after the 2017 season.




All Aboard!  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 sign up.  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.  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 will be paper sign-ups in the Band Room.  You can earn community service credits.  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, and if you lose these fundraiser update or other BPA emails, 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 do not hesitate to ask. 


Thank you and Go Ram Band!
