Parents, Alumni, and Students 15 and Older...HELP!

We just got word from the Union County Fair that we can work the gates on Wednesday, July 28 and Sunday August 1, 2010. The shifts we get are Wednesday, July 28 and Sunday, August 1 from 8-11, 11-4 and 4-9. We will earn $300 for each day worked. Helpers have to be over 15 years old. If you are able to help out (especially on Sunday) please contact Mary Ellen Garwood ASAP on Facebook, email to, or text to 614.396.4307. This is a wonderfully easy opportunity to make some money to benefit our fine Fairbanks musicians!

FMB: Order Your Polos! (From Karla Long)

Hi all,

I know that we are in the midst of summer break, but I wanted to check with everyone and see if there is a need for the "summer uniform".  If your child has grown since the last time you ordered your band polo or they can't find it or whatever the case may be, now is the time to order.

We have only one person so far that needs a shirt, so I wanted to make sure before we placed an order.  The shirt place hates to set the machine up for 1 shirt, so please let us know right away if you are in need.  The cost is $20.

You can respond to this email or call me at
614-530-3359 or MaryEllen Garwood at

Thanks all and have a great summer, see you in July!

Band Camp Update - June 1

Calendar of Events
The calendar of events is set in stone.  There will be no additional dates scheduled for the Summer/Fall 2010 season.  You can visit the calendar online any time and print a copy for your refrigerator.  Band members are required to attend all rehearsals and performances and are bound by the Fairbanks Band attendance policy.

Band Camp Money
Members should have $100 in their account by Monday, June 7.  If you made your $50 deposit and sold two boxes of candy (or made another $50 payment) then you are good to go until August.  If you do not have a $100 balance, please drop a check payable to "Fairbanks Music Boosters" into the mailbox in the band room by 3pm Monday.  You may pay your entire fee of $230 at any time.  If you are in financial need, you may apply for a camp scholarship by downloading this form and returning it to the booster mailbox by June 4.

Please don't lose your folders.   Find them and bring them to school on Thursday and Fri…
