“D.C. in 2019”
Yahoo! The itinerary has arrived and we have selected our travel agency for the
High School Band, June 2019 trip to Washington D.C.
The trip will include tours and time at monuments
(Vietnam Wall, WW2, Korean, Lincoln, Washington) and museums as well as visiting
Arlington Cemetery/Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, 2-3 live performances, cruise on Potomac River, and great food and accommodations. Approximately 15 adult chaperones will be needed to make this trip a success. Please consider traveling with us, it truly is an excellent trip for all!
The boosters will sponsor a HUGE GARAGE SALE and CAR WASH opportunities this May throughout the summer months for students and chaperones to raise money for this trip. Start rounding up garage sale items from your home and gather from neighbors/family/friends. More specific information about the May 26 garage sale and dates for car washes are coming to you SOON!
J-L Band Boosters are hard at work keeping the band program looking and sounding sharp!
J-L Band Boosters have recently sponsored our High School Honor Band students for their overnight December stay in Petoskey, will contribute half of our piano accompaniment costs for Solo &Ensemble for both HS and MS soloists, are actively sponsoring the private lesson program, purchased 3 tubas over the summer and a new set of Chimes this winter.
The Wreath and Poinsettia/Cardinal Spirit sale was a great success raising over $4,000.
The Spring Concert Silent Auction on May 16 is the booster’s next big fundraiser.
Please begin thinking about the great donations you may find to place in the auction.
Thank you to all parents and community who have assisted with fundraising to make our bands GREAT!! Special thanks to the Lewiston American Legion for the recent $500 donation.
Special thanks to the many parents who checked certain jobs on the Booster Volunteer List
compiled in the early fall. We had an overwhelming, very ENCOURAGING
response of parents willing to help our band program!
Monetary donations and donations of quality used instruments are
always greatly appreciated and needed.
