Tour Shirts: on sale for a limited time!

The 2019 Marching Band tour shirt in on sale FOR A LIMITED TIME from now until

September 4th at: https://www.fridaythreads.com/store/mason-band-tour-shirt-2018-limited-time-only-2

 

The tour shirt design is available in short sleeve t-shirts, Long Sleeve t-shirts, Crewneck Sweatshirts and Hoodies.  As a reminder a short sleeve t-shirt has already been ordered for each student as part of their fees. 

 

The t-shirt design is a secret until the students get them and therefore the one on the online form is NOT the actual shirt design.  

 

No late orders will be accepted and extras will not be available so order your tour shirt today! 

 

Reminder: Tag Day, Friends & Family Campaign

During the month of August we are "tagging" those people outside of our immediate Mason Band family to participate in our Friends & Family Campaign.  

 

The idea is to "tag" our closest friends and family members who live outside the Mason area, but who would like to participate in Tag Day by supporting our band program.  Please click this link for a customizable letter and/or email that you are encouraged to customize and have your student send to family and friends during the month of August--Tag "Month"!   Last year we raised over $200 additional dollars in our online campaign.  We are challenging the students to double that this year.   If they are able to do that, we will bring a special treat to one of their Saturday Practices!

 

Please help your kids brainstorm the names of family members and close friends who would appreciate being "tagged" by receiving one of the letters.  Maybe your list includes Mason Band alumni and/or their families...they would certainly appreciate still being considered a part of our band family and may love the opportunity to support the program! 

 

As always, thank you so much for all you do to support our band program.

Tag Day Chair and VP of FUNdraising

 

Lincoln of Cincinnati Test Drive

Lincoln of Cincinnati will make a donation for each person who test drives a Lincoln model vehicle on Saturday, Sept 7th from 8:30am - 2:00pm at Mason Middle School.  A quick drive around campus, such an easy fundraiser!  Our goal is 175 test drives to maximize the donation amount. Please note, anyone 21 year and older can test drive, but only one per household is eligible /counts toward donation. If you  aren’t able to participate, invite your neighbor or another family member!

M Dress Donation Drive

We are in need of M Dress donations so the Color Guard can keep looking their best for Home games.  If your past or current band student has an M dress from their participation in Fall or Winter Guard and you would be willing to donate it we will happily accept!  

 

Donations will be accepted in the collection box at the following locations:

  • Band aid table during any band practice

  • Collection box in the music wing

  • Band Directors office.

Contact Lynne Wilkinson at colorguard@masonbandboosters.com with any questions.

 

Mini Fridge Donation Request

The color guard's mini fridge is no longer working.  If anyone has a small refrigerator that their college student is perhaps no longer using and it could be rehomed, please email colorguard@masonbandboosters.com.  Thank you for your consideration.
