Night at the Cardinals Game

We still have some tickets remaining for Thursday, 6/6 game.

I know some of you have contacted me regarding tickets and I will have them up at the school on Tuesday, 6/4, between 2:00-2:30 while the kids are practicing (rehearsal is from 1:30-2:30).
We are still in need of a few volunteers that can meet the bus back at the school to unload the instruments and put them in the band room.  We can coordinate the time by letting you know when the bus leaves the stadium after the band is finished playing.  If you are available to help out, please let me know.
Also, due to the Cardinals game being at 6:15 this Thursday, 6/6, all students that are going need to be at the school at 3:00 (instead of 4:00) that day.
Contact Kevin with any questions.

BWW Fund Raiser – Wed., 4/17


Attached is the flyer for the fundraiser that the band is hosting at Buffalo Wild Wings on Wednesday, 4/17/13.  It is at the O’Fallon location (moved to
in front of Target) and is from 5-8 pm.

This is a fundraiser for the general (overall) band fund which benefits everyone.  All you need to do to participate is come out to BWW between the times above and have some great food and fun evening, making sure to bring a “coupon” with you.  We will have a DVD playing on their TV’s of photos and videos of the band season for all to see.  We will also have some of our awards up there as well so others can know what an award winning program we have at FZN.

There are 3 “coupons” per page but you only need to bring one (it doesn’t need to be in color).  Please feel free to hand them out to friends and families.  You don’t have to be part of the band to participate.  The only restriction is that they can’t be handed out in the parking lot at BWW.

Looking forward to a great event.  If you have any questions, please let me know.
