Monthly Meeting Minutes

This report will summarize the Booster meeting on 12 February

Band Director’s Report:

·           Jazz band has decided not to perform for the Valentine’s Day dance

·           New York City Band Trip – May 16th – members of the band who wish to participate can travel to NYC to get a behind-the-scenes tour of the Blue Man Group prior to their performance.  The cost per person will be $205 and there has to be 50 participants for the trip to occur.  Mr. Smith will send additional info home with the students.

·           Polo Shirts – need to order additional polo shirts.  In the past, Ned has worked with AMonogram4U, but they have since gone out of business.  Darcy Constantino will help Ned in finding forest green polos and get them monogramed.

·           Discussion on Boosters expanding to other groups – we discussed various options and will continue these discussions at next month’s meeting when more members are in attendance

Booster Update:
