Exciting News

Good Morning.

I have very exciting news to share. We had a VERY generous donor, donate a trip to BAND CAMP! That's right one FREE TRIP TO BAND CAMP!! We will be having a raffle to see who gets this free trip. The Boosters will be selling tickets at both concerts Sunday and Monday night and the Spring Banquet on May 28. Tickets will be $5.00 a piece and we will hold the drawing at the Spring Banquet. We will also have two Port Huron Music Store gift cards that we will be raffling off at the banquet.

Monday night after the concert we will be holding our After Glow for the Seniors. We are looking for delicious desserts and punch to be donated at this event. EVERYONE IS INVITED. Please drop off your donations in the cafeteria before the concert.

We are still in need of help for the concerts this week. The following positions are still open:

Sunday Night
 3 Ushers 
2 people to hand out T-shirts before the concert

Monday Night

Itinerary


Dear Travelers,
            I’m sure everyone is excited and making last minute preparations.  Here are a few things to keep in mind as you pack up this week.
·         Check the weather for packing purposes
·        We will be able to do a quick change after breakfast and before we go to the White House Saturday morning.  You will not be able to access your luggage that is under the bus, so pack anything you want in your carry-on. 
·         Plan carefully for Saturday.   It will be a long day.  You will not be able to bring purses or backpacks into the White House or Capitol Building.  You can carry a wallet or a “clutch.”  A couple of thoughts:  You could get a clutch that turns into a small purse when you add a strap and you could keep the strap in your pocket until after the tours.  You could get a thin bag that folds up small enough to go in your pocket, I have some that are reusable bags I use for groceries.  Keep it in your pocket until after our tours, and then use it as a purse, odd as it will be.
·         Take some time to look up the Smithsonian this week so you can decide which museums you might want to visit.  I have made our 3 ½ days open for you as I do not know what your group would be most interested in seeing and I think if you were going to go to the zoo you’d want it to be a nice day.  You could also go to the National Archives or a tour of the Supreme Court with a docent.
·         After the meeting Thursday, be sure to register with the trip Remind, download the Smithsonian app, and practice using the Metro web site.  See you Thursday.  J

Washington DC Payments

The final payment for Washington DC is due. If you are unsure of the amount you owe please contact a Booster. We can either walk you through CHARMS or send you a statement of your payments.

It is very important that payments are posted this week. We owe our final payment to the travel agent next week.
