Attention BOP Parents!
As you know the Northrop Instrumental Music Parents Association meets the second Tuesday of every month to discuss business related to Big Orange Pride marching band. At the request of the parents, we have decided to begin making the minutes from these meetings available electronically for those who cannot attend. Please use this link (please click here) to view the minutes. We also plan to post the minutes on the Northropmusic.com website.
One note about the attached minutes. At the meeting, the mid-season party was discussed and was planned to be on Saturday October 15. Since that time, we discovered that the show choirs' middle school workshop is that date and the backup band members would be unable to attend. So at this time the party is not planned. More information to come.
Our September NIMPA meeting will be this coming Tuesday at 7pm in the band room. Hope to to see you all there!!
FUNDRAISING NEWSFLASH 9/18
Big Huge Thank you to all who helped set up the booth on Friday, slopped/scooped coleslaw, and cleaned chicken or helped in any other way!! This is an all-hands-on-deck event, and you did not disappoint! It's a really fun/exhausting weekend but totally worth it.
Nelson's "Homecoming" Chicken
I know the thought of chicken is a bit daunting to those who cleaned the 2500lbs of it Friday night, but trust me, come Homecoming Night, you will wish you had some delicious Nelson's chicken to eat instead of the concessions stand hotdogs. We ordered a fairly small quantity, so presales is the only way to ensure you get yours. Price is $6.50/chicken half (will be $7/ea for walk-up sales). Get your tickets anytime from Mom Pape or anytime you see the little orange table. Order forms are above the orange mailbox for those taking outside orders. You get $2/ticket for your band account. Chicken will be ready for pickup by 5pm Friday 9/23, in time for BOP dinner break, and will be kept warm until about 7:30.
Product pick-up is Tuesday 9/20 from 4:30 - 6:30pm. PRODUCT MUST BE PICKED UP DURING THIS TIME. These are frozen goods & there is no place to store them for you. Contact Amanda Crist if there is no way you can possibly work this out. Email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
Fundraiser packets went home Friday after practice. More are available in band room or from Amanda Crist. It runs from now thru Friday 9/30. Orders & money MUST be turned in by then due to company deadline, no extensions will be made. Only Donuts, Pies, and Crunch Candy are being sold (not cookies in the brochure).
Email Bev Pape @ Mommapape@frontier.com if you have questions about any of the above.
