I am sensing a lack of enthusiasm over Band-Aide Day. I was told it may be because we are just overwhelmed with everything going on. I would like to take this chance to help clarify some things and hopefully answer some of your questions. I realize we do not yet know where we will be going on our trip nor do we know the cost. But let me tell you from past experience when the trip and cost is announced you will probably be scrambling to earn the money for you student to go. Do not miss out on any opportunity we have to earn money for your childâ€™s account.
In order for your child to receive part of the â€œPOTâ€ from Band-Aide, you must donate to the auction and your child must work a minimum of 2 hours. The â€œPOTâ€ will consist of all money made from the auction, booth fees, concessions, childrenâ€™s area, and plate lunches. Last year we were able to give each student $150.00. This year we are hoping to do more! We can not do this with out everyoneâ€™s cooperation and help.
Lunch plates consisting of a barbeque pork sandwich, beans, and slaw, will sell for $5.00. No drink included. These will be sold as a pre-sell. Contact Gayle Wofford for tickets. Her home number is 901-405-1416. Please sell to your neighbors and co-workers so we can try to draw a huge crowd. Take out plates available. Serving will begin at 11:00.
Silent Auction: Please turn in your item form ASAP to attention of Sherry Wilhelm or Tania Garrard. We are asking for one item of a $25.00 value. You do not have to go buy a $25.00 item. You might be able to purchase something on sale with that value or a business may donate something for you. BE CREATIVE! Do not bring items to the band hall until September 28th or 29th. Auction begins at 11:00. Any questions contact Sherry at Home: 662-895-6707 or email Tania
