Band Booster Update

Band Families,

Just a few items to mention tonight in the Band Boosters update.

LAST CALL: any ads for the Senior Band Night Program must be sent to arbandpresident@gmail.com no later than Monday August 27 at 12:00 pm. Anything after that time may not make the program.

***SignUp Genius link was sent out this past week for all concession & equipment assistance opportunities for the football season. We will have more opportunities added for competitions.

Please plan to help on August 31, this will be a very busy night with AR Band Seniors being recognized, concession stands, uniforms, programs, and equipment help. Plus it’s a televised game.

***We have joined Amazon Smile which is the donation side of Amazon. You may link your Amazon account to us and they donate a portion of qualified purchases back to us. You can connect by clicking on the banner on our website or by using the below link.

***Wednesday, August 29th will be our first Spirit Night at Raising Canes on Dorchester Rd. They give back 15% of all purchases between 3:00-8:00 when you mention Ashley Ridge Band. We will have a Spirit Night on the last Wednesday of every month except Nov. and Dec. They were gracious enough to donate food for a band camp dinner so let’s return the favor and have a great turn out on Wednesday.

***If you pre-ordered a pillow, we should have those orders ready to be filled this week. We are just finishing the last portion on 25 pillows. If you know of anyone interested in a marching band uniform pillow, please send them to arbandpresident@gmail.com to be added to the list.

***We will be finishing up all uniforms this week to be ready for Friday night.

***I want to once again thank some of our amazing volunteers. Everyone at the JV/B game did an amazing job for a really busy night. To Robert, Michael, Allen, and Todd - thank you for putting together the knowledge and manpower to improve both trailers for travel. Alice thank you for the continued donations of water - we can never have enough. Lynn - for always saying yes when asked. And Sherell - thank you for getting our band to and from the game Friday night safely. The board appreciates all that each and every person who provides their time, talent, or treasure to the program.

Thank you to Mr. Pouncey for all of his hard work on taking over the AR Bands Program. We think he has been doing a fantastic job and have heard the same from the students.

Our program has great momentum so let’s keep it up.

Thank you for all of your support.
