Greetings from Miami!

 Good morning! 

Arriving in Miami this morning and finally have some connection to the world.  It has been a wonderful and much needed trip with my beautiful wife, thank you to everyone who kept our band going in my absence.  I hope you enjoy this picture taken this morning while pulling into Miami ūüôā

 
I just wanted to send a quick reminder about tomorrow’s parade.  I look forward to seeing students with large instruments to help load the trailer at 8:00am at the band room and everyone else at 9:00am at the bank in the morning!  Please review previous posts for more details about the parade.  It’ll be a wonderful day!

See you tomorrow!

Good morning!!!

Wow, where did the summer go? Today is an exciting day!  We are looking forward to making some of the first sounds of the season today!  Just wanted to post a few quick reminders:

  1. Drink a large glass of water. ¬†Hopefully you never stopped drinking plenty of water, but just in case go ahead and have another glass now. ¬†This will help you during today’s practice.
  2. Practice begins promptly at 3:00pm – Remember that being “On-Time” means to be early. ¬†If you arrive at 3:00pm, you’re late.
  3. You will need to dress appropriately to go outside. ¬†We will have rehearsal even if it is raining outside. ¬†We have plenty of music to learn for Saturday’s performance. ¬†It’s going to be a great one!
  4. We have rehearsal again on Friday from 3:00pm – 6:00pm.
  5. We will load instruments after rehearsal on Friday into the small trailer.  If your instrument is on the truck, plan on returning to the band room after the parade to help unload the trailer.
  6. Saturday we will report to the Community and Southern Bank (201 Maple St ‚ÄĘ Carrollton, GA 30117)¬†at 9:00AM, please arrive early. ¬†The parade steps off at 10:00AM and we should be finished by 10:30AM-11:00AM. ¬†Please have your ride pick you up from the K-Mart parking lot, at the end of the parade route. ¬†The trailer will return to the band room immediately following the parade. ¬†Please help us unload the trailer after the parade.
