Preview Concert 2014

Preview Concert

You are cordially invited to attend the “Preview Concert” at the PAC at OPMS on Friday night at 6:00 (students are dismissed from rehearsal at 3:00 pm and report for concert warm-up at 5:30 pm).

Our students have worked so hard this summer and are looking forward to the annual end of band camp “Overnighter” scheduled to take place after the preview concert on Friday evening.

HOWEVER, are still in need of chaperones for the evening.  Please let us know if you can help out. You can contact Mary Hopperton or sign up on Volunteer Spot at http://vols.pt/M1eUEc.

Thank you,

This week…

Thank you to everyone who has volunteered to chaperone band camp activities so far and have come to help with fittings. Many hands make for easy work.

We only have one more activity that needs chaperones – the “overnighter.” The Hopperton’s have generously offered the use of their house again, but cannot be expected to stay up all night to chaperone students by themselves. Please log on to Volunteer Spot or call Mary if you can help out with these shifts. If we don’t have coverage, we’ll have to cancel this fun and much anticipated event for the students.

If you need to contact Mary directly please call or email. 619 203 1202.

We’re using VolunteerSpot (the leading online signup and reminder tool) to organize our upcoming activity.
