Gun raffles from the parents of band students not the music boosters- proceeds will be donated to the school.  Look for info on Facebook

Amazon fundraisers- Smiles program or Associate program- She is checking with Alysha Sloan and Academic Boosters to see if we can share the profits and then we will post it on the school web page under booster clubs and music boosters, too.

She has a list to solicit donations from area businesses and groups.  She has a letter prepared to send out. She is going to work out the details with Kim Friend- music booster treasurer to set this up.

Jodi is setting up soap sales to start at the beginning of the school year through the musical arts classes.

Cheese balls will be in the fall.
