Sherwood Winter Showcase is only one month away!!!

Good Morning Band Families,

We have the opportunity to host a Winter Showcase on March 17th, 2018.  I am reaching out to ALL band families to help us make this successful.  Please follow the link and volunteer to pull this busy and exciting day off.  Any of you who have a student in marching band or winter activities know and understand what it is like to go to a competition… all the concessions, awards, ticket takers, ushers etc.  That is what we need to make this competition successful on March 17th.  We are also inviting our middle school band families to sign up to make the day run smoothly.  Thank you in advance for helping us out!
Follow the link to find a slot that’s right for you: http://signup.com/go/HuEEdPN
Thank you!
Lennae Bishop
Sherwood Band Booster President
