BPA Meeting for April 4: Cancelled

Letter from the BPA:

The Joliet Central Band Parent meeting for Tuesday night April 4th has been cancelled because of the busy time for the dinner dance. If you are not aware this is the biggest fundraiser of the year. Please find attached, as a reminder, the donation request letter and flyer for the dance. We would again ask that you share with your employer, friends and family that may own a business for donations and ads.

We currently have SIX parents working on a fundraiser that will benefit 112 students, imagine if 106 more parents were to participate in some way! It takes a village to raise the wonderful musicians that they are becoming. Please consider donating your time and efforts!
