A few words from Miss Edie….

Hello Band Families –

We would like to let you know about a few upcoming events……


– Feb 18th – We will place a Scrip Order on Tuesday, Feb. 18th.  The list of participating retailers can be found at glscrip.com.  Please email your list to Edie at fitzveros@yahoo.com by Tuesday, Feb. 18th – 11:00 AM.  The orders will arrive on Feb. 20th.  This is an easy way to earn money for your student’s band account.  This money can go toward band camp, musical supplies, band trips, etc.  Contact Edie with any questions.


– Feb. 28 – March 1 – WLW is hosting Band and Orchestra Festival at our school.  The Band Boosters are handling concession sales and signage.  WE NEED YOUR HELP!   If you can sell concessions for a few hours on  Friday evening between 3:00 – 9:00 or Saturday between 7:30 – 3:00, please contact Linda Nielsen at lnielsen2010@comcast.net.  We also need someone to oversee sign placement on Friday afternoon (students will be helping with signs, also).  Please contact Linda (above) or Edie Fitzpatrick (fitzveros@yahoo.com) with questions.


 – March 29 – Casino Bus Trip – Please join us for a fun evening at the casino!  We will be taking a bus from WLW  – leaving at 4:30, returning at 11:30.  The cost is $40, which includes $20 in tokens.  Invite your family and friends to this band ‘fun’draiser!  Contact Roxanne Barry for sign up or questions – mrmbarry@sbcglobal.net.


– May 3 – Save the Date!  Please plan to join us for our 2nd Annual Euchre Party fundraiser!  We had a great time last year – hope you and your family/friends will join us!    If you have any connections for donations for our basket raffle, please let Roxanne Barry know (mrmbarry@sbcglobal.net).    More information to come…..


Are  you ‘a car guy?’  We need someone to look over our band trailer and let us know what maintenance is needed.  If this is something you could help with, please let Mr. Dudzinski know!


 Would you be interested in being a leader in the WLW Band Booster Organization?  Possibly serving on the WLW Band Booster Board?  Overseeing our Citrus Sale next year?  Managing the band Website and Facebook  page?   Spirit Wear Sales?   Fundraising committee member?  Concession sales committee member?   If any of these sound like something you’d be interested in, contact Edie Fitzpatrick (fitzveros@yahoo.com).  Please consider donating some of your time to keep this great program going for our kids!

A message about Scrip purchases from Miss Edie

Hello Band Families –

We will have 2 more opportunities for you to order Scrip gift cards before the holidays!  Assuming that we meet our minimum required order amount of $1000, I will submit orders on Monday, Dec. 9th and Dec. 16th.  Please email your lists to me at fitzveros@yahoo.com by 10:00 AM on those dates.  If we don’t reach the $1000 total on the first order date, I will carry those orders over to the next date.  We will definitely submit an order on Dec. 16th, regardless of our total.

 I will let you know when I receive your initial orders, and will contact you to arrange for delivery when they arrive.  Scrip must be paid for with cash or check (made out to WLWBB).  Payment is due when the gift cards are delivered to you.

Thanks – and Happy Shopping!

Edie Fitzpatrick
