JET Band Jingle Tour

Just when you thought marching season was over, the JET Band and Color Guard has one more event!

The first ever JET Band Jingle Tour!  The JET Band will march in Green Trails on Saturday, December 15th from 2:00 – 4:00 pm, ending with a holiday concert in Crescent Green Park, including refreshments and pictures with Santa!  Follow this link to map and order/request form to donate to the JET Band by purchasing a Jingle Stop of holiday tunes and/or a Color Guard performance.  Sign up for volunteers and donations coming soon.

Ugly sweaters unite and decorated instruments are a must!

JET Band Jingle raffle

Raffle items needed!  In connection with the JET Jingle concert on December 10th, the JET Band Boosters will be holding a raffle to raise funds for the band and color guard.   If you are interested in donating an item to the raffle, please e-mail Kristin Abel at secretary@jetband.org.

Spirit Wear

If you ordered a STATE shirt and haven’t picked it up yet, it’s probably in the Band Hall labeled with your name.

Also, hoodies are still available.  Email Jenny Hicks at spirit@jetband.org for ordering.  I think Tuesday is the deadline.

Project Grad

Thank you to everyone who has stepped up to help with donations for our Project Grad basket!  Your generosity is truly appreciated and will help us to create an amazing basket that will raise lots of money for Project Grad.  Special thanks to Cindi Adams and Sharon Mitchell for creating a beautiful wreath for auction on behalf of the JET Band.

Concert Programs and Ads

Like Shakira mentioned at the Booster meeting, be thinking about placing an ad in the Concert Program for your student.  More details to follow

Let me know if you have any questions about anything.  I’m here for you! President@jetband.org.

Jingle On….
