12/08/14 A Message from your Booster President

Dear band parents,

I have some alarming news. Our nominating committee has informed me that as of yet, we have no firm commitments from anyone willing to run for President, Vice President, Treasurer or Secretary for the 2015 Executive Board.

I want to assure anyone who has been thinking about running that you will have the active support of the outgoing board members. I will remain on the board as Immediate Past President, and Patsy, Leslie and Tanya have all expressed their intention to help the board by chairing key committees.

At the risk of sounding alarmist, it was only a few years ago that the Orchestra Boosters disbanded due to lack of parent support. It would be terrible for the bands at MPHS if we let the same thing happen with the Band Boosters.

Please, if you have an interest in supporting the music program at MPHS, submit your name to Brenda Kaiser or any member of the board. You may also place your own name up for nomination from the floor during the December 11 meeting.

Even if you will not be nominating yourself for the board, come to the meeting on December 11 at 6:00 in the band room to find out:

  • Who will run for the Executive Board
  • Status report of the proposed trip to Hollywood
  • What you need to know about the Regional Band Auditions in January
