We are looking for volunteers to work at the Millionaire Party at Westgate Bowl on Sunday, January 3, 2016. There are benefits for your students if you can fill this spot. Please email me for details. There are two shifts, 11 am to 7 pm and 7 pm to 2 am. I know these are difficult times to give up, that is why I've not filled them yet. We have to have 3 adults (18 or over) on site at all times. This fundraiser was a last minute addition and we are helping out A-1 Bingo fill this event. We lost our spot with A-1 almost two years ago and we now have a chance to show them that we can do this. Please email me if you are interested or have any questions. email@example.com.
I wanted to bring your attention to the November Music Booster Meeting. We will be meeting in the high school band room at 6 pm tomorrow (Thursday, November 19, 2015). Please come out and join us as we discuss and plan and prepare to bring exciting things to our fine arts students.
Congrats to the Grant Band! It was a great season. To honor the band, we are having a band banquet at the Grant Wesleyan Church in the gymnasium on Friday, November 20, 2015, from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm. We would like the meal to begin as close to 6:00 pm as possible. After the meal there will be some presentations.
Immediately following the banquet, the band students are invited to stay for the Band Fun Night where they will learn the results of the mock elections and play games. This will be held at the Grant Wesleyan Church Youth Center from 8:00 pm to 11:00 pm. Please plan on picking up your children or arranging for trips home by 11:00 p.m.
The meal is potluck style. Please bring the following family size suggestions:
Dear Band Parents:
This year we've seen our little marchers give so much of themselves toward band and have earned their way to the State competition which could not be possible without the dedication of our director, instructors, and semi drivers (including Andrew Buikema, Makenna, Jake, Duc, Donnie, Tony, and Tom). As a token of our appreciation, we would like to present a nice gift to each of them at the band banquet. Our goal is to reach $400.
Christi Evans and I will be collecting money over the next couple weeks. Please be sure that your donation is in an envelope marked "Christi Evans or Michelle Kruzel." There are several ways for you to drop off your generous donation, 1) Drop off to Christi Evans at the Grant Wesleyan Church from 9:30 am to 3pm M-F, 2) Drop off to Eleaze Farrell at Gene's Market, 3) Christi Evans and I will be at the State competition this weekend, 4) send with your child to school and give to Tyler Kruzel or Jared Evans, 5) contact me at 231-250-7374 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or 5) contact Christi Evans at 231-519-2685 email@example.com, 6) drop in the "Band Fees" drop box inside the band room.

We are in need of scholarship funds for our amazing students. With a couple fundraisers taken out this year (Gov. Snyder cut Texas Hold Em from a lot of charities, including us)...we are in dire need of funds to help aide our scholarship fund that has not been able to be replenished by these fundraisers.
The Grant Music Boosters, a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization, has established a scholarship fund and are in dire need to fund it. This fund will be used to help Grant band, choir and theater students attend summer camp programs. Please consider making a tax deductible donation to help send our students to camps that help strengthen our fine arts programs and the student. Grant Music Boosters, PO Box 546, Grant, Michigan 49327.
Thank you for your consideration in your financial gift!
