Entertainment Book Sale 2014

For the 18th consecutive year, the Anthony Wayne Band Boosters will be sponsoring its fall fundraiser: the Entertainment Book Sale. The fundraiser includes all three schools, from beginning-year 5th grade students through 12th grade band students. This year’s Entertainment campaign will kick off on Friday August 22nd through Friday September 12th. The sale will run for approximately 3 weeks with an order turn-in date of Monday, September 15, 2014.

During the sale kick off, each student will receive one Entertainment Book valued at $25. You are responsible for purchasing, selling, or returning this book in good condition. If you do not plan to sell the book, please return it to Mr. Young or Mr. Krichbaum as soon as possible. When you sell your book, you may get another from the band directors at any time. All money should be collected when orders are taken! If your sample book is returned damaged you will be responsible for the cost of the book which is $25, so please take extreme care with your book.

As you are taking orders for your book, please let your customer know that checks and cash are both accepted. Checks should be made payable to AWBB.

The Entertainment Discount Book is available for almost any city. Out-of-Town books are priced differently for each city so check the insert for the cost. There will be a separate order form in your Entertainment Kit for out-of-town orders. You can also purchase books on line at Entertainment’s website. Please see the attached insert in your kit for details. The Anthony Wayne group I.D. for purchasing on line is #369322.

As an incentive for selling, the Anthony Wayne Band Boosters and the Entertainment Company will be giving away multiple prizes. The top seller for all schools will receive two (2) one-day passes to Kalahari in Sandusky, OH.

The Entertainment Book has many great coupons for local stores and restaurants and has become one of the Anthony Wayne Band’s most successful fundraisers. It represents a significant amount of the band booster’s budget and provides additional funds used for trips, awards, the purchase of instruments, band uniforms, and other items. As the cost has been reduced, we need to sell even more to meet our goals.

On behalf of the Anthony Wayne Band Boosters, we would like to thank you for supporting this important fundraiser. We appreciate your dedication and support of the Anthony Wayne Marching Generals and look forward to a successful year! If you have any questions, please contact Jill Perretti.

Good Luck Selling!

Advertising Opportunities

Advertising on the band tower or the band trailer are excellent ways to not only support the Anthony Wayne Instrumental Program, but also to advertise your business. The band trailer is seen by thousands of spectators year round and the practice tower is seen by members of surrounding communities at home sporting events. In addition, your name is placed in all performance programs including concerts, Showcase of Bands, fall and winter sports programs and the Anthony Wayne Band Booster website.

If you are interested in a sponsorship, please print the attached sponsorship form (PDF) and send it with your check to the address indicated on the form.

Thank you again for your support of  the Anthony Wayne Marching Generals.

Showcase of Bands: Volunteers Needed

It is that time of the year again, Showcase of Bands is just a little over a month away (September 20th, 2014). We are in need of volunteers for the following areas:

  • Ticket Booth
  • 50/50 Raffle
  • Concessions
  • Greeters
  • Decorations
  • Band Meal
  • Band Dessert- donate cookies

Please contact us with any questions and let us know what area you are interested in volunteering for.

We do like to have the non-senior parents to fill these spots, so our Senior parents are able to sit down and enjoy the complete show…(but, if you are a Senior parent and are wishing to volunteer, we will not turn away help… lol) AND we encourage the 5th-8th grade parents to come join in on the volunteering. This is the first event of the school year, with many more to come. We hope that you come out and get involved.

Thank you for all the support and time you have dedicated to our awesome band program and to our students…it is appreciated.

Best Regards,

Kerri Murphy Co-Chair

Rehearsals are on for tomorrow

I just received word from the administration that activities are on for tomorrow.  We will have band camp as scheduled.

Safe drinking water will be provided for the students.  Students are also welcome to bring their own water to practices.

Attached (PDF) is a new calendar (changes have been made in bold), a sports agreement (for students who are participating in a fall sport), and an emergency medical form (EMF). The EMF needs to be filled out by all NEW students.  If you were in band last year – including 8th grade band – you do NOT need to fill one out.  We have last year’s forms and new ones will be copied after registration.

Thanks for your patience.  Looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow.
