Pie and Fruit Fundraisers

Thanks to all the volunteers who helped tally orders this week. Pie orders were due Monday. Orders dropped off after noon on Thursday may not be able to be filled, so please get them to the band room ASAP.

Fruit orders are due November 17. Fill out the tally sheet and make sure that full payment is enclosed with the order. Print out additional order forms, if needed.

Volunteer Shout Out

Mr. Scott will give honor band service hour credits for this one time event to help our feeder program out.  Contact to volunteer.

Volunteers are needed to work some carnival games at our Annual Laurel Hill Fall Carnival, held this Friday November 4th from 4:15pm to 7:30pm. This is very late notice and we understand if you can not help us, but I thought I would ask. If you could help me, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you so much!
