This year we had $3375 in online sales, and $5277 in "paper form" sales for a grand total of $8652! Nice work everybody!

*** ALL ORDERS MUST BE PICKED UP ON THIS DATE *** If you cannot be there for pick up, please make arrangements for someone else to pick your order up for you. The product pick-up location will be the FVL Auditorium Stage.
Concert Vest Fittings will be Saturday, October 12
We will fit the concert vests for the Cadet Band and Concert Winds students on Saturday, October 12 during the rehearsal. A few moms or dads is all that is needed. We have a few moms who have volunteerd for our uniform crew, but more would be welcome on fitting day. Thanks for considering this very important volunteer opportunity!
Please let me know if you are able to help out on Saturday. Respond to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Then on the day of the concert (November 24) we would need our parent uniform volunteers to assist with distributing the vests before the concert and collecting them after the concert.
Concert Dress for the November 24 concert
So that you have adequate time to prepare, here is a summary of what our students need to wear for our concert in November (Both Cadet Band and Concert Winds):
Ladies should wear black dress shoes, black socks or black hose, full length black pants (not faded), and a white button blouse with long sleeves. No tennis shoes, leggings, or capri style pants. Do not wear black skirts.
Gentlemen should wear black dress shoes, black socks, black belt, black pants (not faded), and a white dress shirt.
The Concert Winds members will wear a bow tie with their vests, so it is important to have a shirt with a "traditional" collar.
The Cadet Band members will wear a sweater vest for their performances. The vests will be handed out prior to and collected immediately following the concert.
Concert Winds members will receive a vest and bow tie before their performance. Vests and bow ties will be handed out prior to and should be returned immediately after the concert.
