Mason High School Marching Band Invitational – October 17

 

The next competition for the Lafayette Band will be the Mason High School Marching Band invitational in Mason, Ohio (near Cincinnati) on October 17.  This will be a one-show competition at an excellent facility and offers an outstanding opportunity to watch a different array of high quality band programs than we usually encounter.

The competition will be held at Atrium Stadium on the campus of Mason Middle School, adjacent to Mason High School.

Two competitions will be held with separate award ceremonies.  The Class A / AA block will occur in early afternoon with awards in late afternoon.  The AAA / AAAA / Open block (which includes Lafayette) will begin shortly thereafter and finish with an exhibition performance of the William Mason Marching Band.

Uniform Crew News

 

A football game means a performance, and that means students need to be prepared. It is the responsibility of the Uniform Crew to make sure uniforms are in tip-top shape for performances.  Parents/students also have responsibilities for being performance-ready – do you know what they are?

Short/contained hair, all-white socks, band camp shirt, white shorts, clean gloves, clean shoes, deodorant, no fingernail polish and no visible jewelry!

Seniors might want their hair to look extra spiffy for pictures.

BINGO – Volunteers Needed Now

 

Bingo is a year round fundraiser and we need your help!  This is a busy time for everyone but the financial success of Bingo depends on parent volunteers. Several pull tab sellers are needed every Tuesday and Thursday – the bingo patrons want to give us their money by purchasing pull tabs!

We ask that each family volunteer 12 times per year at Bingo.  Please find a Tuesday or Thursday this fall and come to the Bingo Hall in Keithshire Shopping Center at 6:00 pm.  You will meet some great parents and support the band’s fundraising efforts.
