Who will be performing at the Otsego Band Invitational?

Welcome to another marching band season!

Planning, organizing and prepping for the 2014-15 marching season is now in full swing. We hope that you and your band student are as excited as we are to begin this new season.

As a parent of a band student in grades 6 – 12 , you play an important part in the Otsego Band program. Your support is invaluable – from getting your child to and from their practices and their performances, attending your band student’s performances, and assisting the high school band with instruments and uniforms during football games, parades, and band competitions. We couldn’t do this without your support.

At the high school level, it takes a lot of hands to pull off a successful marching band season from the marching staff that design the programs and prepare the band students for performances, the uniform moms who make sure that your child looks great when they hit the field marching, the band dads who load and unload the trailers for competitions and parades, the band parents that provide food for festivals, etc., the band parents that help with fundraising events, and the band parents that help publicize all band events. This year we are looking at 100+ students for the new season. We would love to have you join us.

At the middle school level, there are many opportunities for you to become involved from assisting with fundraising events (i.e., Allegan Fair Concessions booth, Otsego Band Invitational (OBI) activities), helping with uniforms for the eight grade band students, attending Band Boosters meetings to stay informed of what is happening in your child’s band program, and attending your child’s band performances. We would really love to have you join us.

Please take time to look over the Otsego Band Booster July 2014 Newsletter to see where you could possibly help out throughout the 2014-15 year.

Sincerely yours,

Andy Black, President
Jayne Stamurs, Vice President
Peggy Walker, Treasurer
