Please read the following information for the New Family Welcome Breakfast from our Events Chairs — Candie Goode and Norma Treibly

The Cario Band Booster's Annual Welcome Breakfast has been rescheduled for October 21st at Burton’s Grill. We appreciate your patience as we have been working to get this wonderful event back on the calendar.

We invite all of our new band families to come out and join us for a delightful pancake breakfast. It is a great time to meet others in the band and ask questions about Cario Band. To RSVP for the Breakfast click on RSVP is required by October 18th.

We also need 8th graders to volunteer for this time-honored event to serve breakfast to the new families! To VOLUNTEER click on

It is sure to be a fun time for everyone AND after breakfast, be sure to head over to Sullivan’s Island for the Beach Sweep!

Please note we need everyone attending the breakfast or volunteering to signup using the revised forms. We did not automatically transfer attendees or volunteers who signed up before over to the new date.
