Booster Meeting Tuesday, Jan 6th

Happy New Year!
Hope you all had a pleasant and restful holiday season, and you’re ready to jump head first into the new year.  I’m sure your new year resolutions include some volunteer time.  We can help you out with that.

This month’s Decatur Band Booster meeting is coming up next Tuesday, Jan 6th at 7:00 in the Decatur Band room, and we have opportunities for Decatur Band supporters!  Please join us at the meeting to find out what’s coming up.  Maybe you’ll hear of something you’d like to get involved with, or maybe you have some additional ideas to consider.

Even if you can’t make it, we need help from everyone in requesting donations for the benefit auction at this year’s Big Band Showcase.  It’s not that far away (March 28) so we need to get cracking on this now.  Please see the Big Band Showcase Page for more info.

Thanks everyone!  See you Tuesday!

Make plans now to attend this unique concert with special guest clarinetist Christopher Bush on Friday, October 24th, 7:00PM at Decatur High School.  And don’t forget the Masterclass on Thursday, October 23rd at 6:00PM in the Decatur Band Room.  The Masterclass is open to all students and parents from any school, and will be valuable to all musicians (not just clarinetists).  We hope you can take advantage of both of these fantastic opportunities.

October Band News

The days are getting shorter, the air is getting cooler, the leaves are starting to turn, and the Decatur Band is back on the football field working up their marching routine for the Homecoming game on Oct. 17th.  They’re looking and sounding great.  Hope everyone can make it to the game to see and hear the finished product (and maybe take in a little Decatur football too).

October Booster Meeting
The October DHS Band Booster meeting is this coming up on Tuesday, October 7, at 7:00 in the band room.  We will be discussing near term and longer term events for the band and the Boosters, including plans for our major fundraiser, the Big Band Showcase.  We need to hear from both students and parents now to ensure success for all this years’ events.  Bring your questions, comments and ideas, or just come to listen in and find out what’s going on.  All are welcome, and more participation makes the load lighter for everyone.

Spirit Scarves

Our first fundraiser of the year, Decatur Spirit Scarves are great for showing your support for Decatur and the band (and they’re warm too).  They’re soft, snuggly fluorescent orange fleece, and they’re only $5.  We’ll have them available at Decatur home football games, and at the upcoming Booster meeting.  Get yours before it gets cold!
