Dear Bishop Lynch Friar Band and Color Guard Parents:
Welcome to the 2016-2017 Bishop Lynch Friar Band and Color Guard year!
On behalf of the entire Board, Officers and Chiefs, I want to welcome all new and returning parents to the Band/Color Guard Booster Club. If you have a son or daughter in Band or Color Guard, you are a member of the Booster Club. It is the purpose and mission of our group to support the Band and Color Guard programs financially (primarily through our volunteer operations of the Concessions Program) and to otherwise assist our excellent director (Mr. Mickey Owens) and instructors (Mr. JT Thomas/Color Guard, and Mr. Jay Majernik/Percussion) in their mission to provide quality band and color guard programs at BL.
2. Please Join Us.
We look forward to being with each of you at the games and performances, and invite each of you (and particularly the parents of new Band/ Color Guard students) to join us by getting involved. The Band/ Color Guard has been an important part of our son’s BL experience, as it is for all of our students. Please help us to continue this proud tradition of assisting our students and directors throughout the school year, by volunteering to assist us in concessions, becoming a Concessions Chief, and joining us as a Booster officer. We need your assistance! It is a great way to get involved with BL, get to know other Band/ Color Guard parents, and make a positive impact on the band/ color guard programs. If you are interested in getting involved, please contact me or any of our other existing Board members or Chiefs. Booster Club meetings are typically held on the second Tuesday of each month, at 7pm at the school. Please join us. You will be glad you did!
3. Our Concessions Program.
Since 1998, our main fundraising activity has been to run concessions for all major athletic events throughout the year at BL, including football, soccer, basketball, volleyball, baseball, track and field, DPL games, etc. This is a great asset to you and to our Club in that by volunteering to assist in running concessions, you have the opportunity to defray much, if not all, of the band/ color guard participation fees and expenses, as you will receive a credit toward those fees for each volunteer hour of service! We are planning a Spring Trip for the Band/ Color Guard at this time. We can only do so, with your help. This is a great opportunity, and responsibility, for each of us. Please sign up on Signup Genius. We Band needs you.
4. Additional Information.
We will be sending out or posting more information periodically throughout the school year. If you have any questions in the meantime, or throughout the year, please do not hesitate to contact me, or any other Board member, officer or Chief. We will be glad to help, and again, thank you.
Bill Weyrens, BL Band/ Color Guard Booster, President (2014-15)
