Hello RAMBAND Parents:

We hope you are enjoying this beautiful summer!  With school out of session, our families are enjoying some time off, getting reset and recharged, hopefully having great adventures on vacation at various exciting places, or right here in and around Cheshire.  For those at home, the Marching Ram Band has been busy meeting the last several Tuesdays to begin rehearsing their upcoming production for the fall marching season.  The excitement is building for another great season!

If you were unable to attend the Annual Member Meeting on the 28th of June, you can find the Presentation on www.ramband.com
by clicking the “CHSBPA Board of Directors” tab.  Welcome to our new Board of Directors!  You can find their names and contact information on that page as well.  And click the “About Us” tab to find our mission statement, key events/dates, grants/scholarships and corporate documents.

The mission of the CHSBPA is to provide financial support to our primary beneficiary, the CHS Marching Ram Band, and to fund BPA Scholarships, Banquets and for our other philanthropic and corporate sustainment interests.  We have kicked off our CHSBPA fundraising year already – and we need your help!  Please visit
www.ramband.com and click the “Fundraising” tab to find opportunities to contribute to our cause.  You may also click any of the fundraising links below to begin to sign up for our full slate of events for the year.
