Things we like
What a full and wonderful homecoming week! Congratulations to our very own Jody Shaw for representing the band and the senior class in the homecoming court. She is a true class act, and we are so very proud of her!
There are ten show shirts left for purchase. They are mostly sizes L, XL, and 2XL. If you would still like to get one, contact Kelly Parrish. firstname.lastname@example.org
Please turn in any Boston Butt orders you already have. This will allow us to get an accurate count of how many we've sold. October 24th is the final deadline to have all orders in. Chuckwagon will be providing our butts this year and pick up will be on November 4 in front of the Freshman Academy from 9-11. You can use the attached flier to take orders. Please attach money to order form before putting in band box. If using Venmo, please include name of buyer, name of band student, and boston butt in the memo line.

Please remember that the uniforms are dry clean only! You may get it cleaned, as needed, during the season but no washing at home. If there are any questions or concerns, please contact Kelly. email@example.com
Also, everyone please make sure that the snaps at the bottom of the bibbers are completely snapped all the way up the pant leg on both sides. If you only snap the top snap, the legs will look poofy at the bottom. Nobody wants poofy legs so snap, snap.
