Officer Elections in June

To All Anthony Wayne Band Boosters,

The next booster meeting will be held on Monday, June 1st at 7pm in the high school band room, when next Year’s AWBB Executive Board will be voting on. People for two of the four officer positions will be voted on. Please attend the meeting and vote.
We are still looking for Candidates and presently there has been only one nominee for Vice President submitted. Our other opening is for Secretary, which cannot be left empty and is a much needed Executive position.

Open Positions Officer Duties:

The Vice President shall assume the duties of the President in the absence of the President and assist in any way to facilitate the President in carrying out the purpose of the organization. The Vice President shall assume the office of the President in accordance with Section 4. (The VP shall be the President-elect and shall assume the office of President upon completion of the term of Vice President).

The Secretary shall keep accurate records of all booster meetings, make and provide a report of the minutes at all booster meetings, and handle all assigned correspondence.

If you are interested in putting your name on the Ballot please send me an e-mail: president@awbb.org.

Golf Ecology Volunteering

Anthony Wayne Band Students and Band Boosters,

It’s back … our annual opportunity to work at the Marathon Classic LPGA event at Highland Meadows in Sylvania.   The tournament organizers have again selected the Anthony Wayne Band Boosters to keep the course clean during the tournament. This is a big event and it takes a lot of hands to run it – 180 volunteer opportunities and contributes 10% of our Band Booster income. Our duties include setting up the trash containers on Sunday before the event, picking up and disposing of trash and glass bottles for recycling during the event, and a final pickup of the parking lots Monday after the tournament ends. It’s a great event to work as a family, it’s also a great chance for the band students to participate directly in fundraising for the band. Fundraising opportunities like this help provide instruments for the band, reduce student prices for the big trips, participate in contests and honor bands, look sharp as Marching Generals, and so much more.

Below is a listing of the tournament activities, shifts, and duties for that shift. Sunday is a quick event to setup the containers. Monday and Wednesday are light duty and offer the best opportunities to watch golfers and get autographs. Tournament play begins on Thursday so autographs are not so easily obtained since the golfers are focused on their jobs. Saturday and Sunday bring the public crowds and we need most help on those days. As a volunteer, you’ll get a T-shirt, parking pass, and hat or visor. The organizers request that we wear khaki pants/shorts/skirts and the volunteer T-shirt while on duty. A volunteer meeting will be held prior to the event to discuss details and distribute T-shirts and credentials.
