Reminders for the Week of September 4, 2019

Good morning, Band Family.  Here are some quick reminders for the week.

Ways and Means:  There’s only 1 more day left to donate to Snap-Raise!  Please share the link – even a few more dollars per donor would do so much!

Blue Band Jacket Embroidery:  Mary Kitts will be outside the band room today to collect orders.  If you’d like to have your child’s name and’/or instrument, please find Mary with $10.  Mary generously donates $3 of each order back to the HC Band.  Jackets for new marchers will be distributed tomorrow after the fundraiser meeting.

Century Fundraising Kickoff Meeting:  Speaking of…the meeting will be tomorrow in the cafeteria from 3:30-4:30.  ALL band students should attend, including marching students, concert-only students, color guard, and anybody I’ve left out.

Crew: We still need volunteers to help out with the shows in Muncie and in Indianapolis. Please use the signupgenius link to volunteer before this Thursday afternoon. We will only be ordering field passes for those who are signed up, so make sure that if you plan on volunteering for either event, that you have your name recorded in signupgenius. There are still a few people who have not picked up their crew shirts. Please see Jon Livingood before Muncie to get your shirt. Sorry, we do not have any extras. Join us on GroupMe to receive crew-related news and updates.  You can reach Jon at if you have any questions.

Buttons:  Lisa Gray is taking up one last order for buttons for this marching season.  All orders need to be in the band box in the band room by Friday, Sept 27, or can be given to her at Pack the Parking Lot on Friday.  Her email is if you have any questions.

Magnets and Stickers:  Suzonne Bunch will have magnets and stickers to distribute and for purchase during Pack the Parking Lot on Friday.  She’ll be at the top of the hill by the stairs near the soccer field.  Her email is if you have questions.

Spirit Wear:  Spirit wear store has HC lounge pants, or you can save $3 for a PJ set! Perfect for our overnight trip to Indy! Please order by Oct. 1st!  Paula is sourcing some ideas for a “Christmas & Stocking stuffers” order in November. If you have ideas, email them to Paula Howard at

Pictures:  Keep taking great band pictures of your kids!!  They’ll really come in handy when we announce a special surprise for them before their trip to Indy!!  Watch your inboxes for that announcement.  Also watch for upcoming information about a new photo sharing site just for HC Band.  Stay tuned!

Communications:  Adrienne McKinney serves as our committee chair, and was our videographer in Louisville (nice job!).  Her email is if you need her to post things.  I’m her back-up and web site helper.

Muncie:  Mr. Kite sent out our very exciting Itinerary for our Muncie trip, October 4-6.  Please make sure to read it carefully!

Thanks, and have a great day,
