From the President ~ Welcome to Cario Bands 2017-2018!

Hope everyone had a great week—lots in information this week. Please read the entire announcement. There will be additional emails sent this evening as a follow up. Just so you know….I am not doing this to flood your inbox with useless emails (believe me, not what I want to do). However, with the volume of important information, I did not want to make this announcement into a 4 page email….but if you don’t read this email and start automatically replying to me, you will go on the NAUGHTY LIST!!!! And nobody wants that this time of year!!
