It appears spring has sprung, and that means March Madness is upon us. Decatur band activities always ramp up in March, and this year is no exception. We have concerts and contests and meetings (oh my), and a couple fundraisers to add to the fun. And I think I heard something about some college basketball thingy, but can’t really remember. Must not have been very important… Anyhow, here’s a couple of near term items you won’t want to miss…
Booster Meeting – Tuesday, March 3, 7:00pm Decatur Band Room
This is the last regularly scheduled Booster meeting before this year’s Big Band Showcase. We need as many students and parents to attend this meeting as possible, and especially all of our designated Big Band Showcase coordinators, so that we can organize our final push to this year’s biggest fundraiser. This one is very important. Please try to attend.
Spring Concert – Thursday, March 5, 7:00 Decatur PA
After hearing them at the Service Area Concert on February 26th, I am very excited for what our bands have in store for us at the Spring Concert this Thursday. Mr. Chang has definitely inspired these students toward musical excellence, and it appears to be paying off. Come on out and show your support for the tremendous progress our bands continue to make and you will be rewarded with an evening of great music.
Fundraiser at Costa Vida – Monday, March 9, 5:00-9:00, Costa Vida Fresh Mexican Restaurant, FW Commons Mall
Why not take the night off and enjoy a nice dinner out at Costa Vida Fresh Mexican Restaurant? Present the Decatur Band promotional flyer with your purchase, and 25% of the purchase price will be donated back to support the Decatur Band. It’s a win-win for all.
There’s a lot more coming up for the Band in March. Check out the “Upcoming Events” sidebar and the link to the full calendar for a more complete list.
Looking forward to seeing everyone next week!
