         o Send out the band letter as soon as possible to raise funds. This fundraiser is especially
           good for family and friends who are out of state and have not participated in any other
           fundraiser and would like to help the band. This fundraiser pays for things like: Sam Hazo,
         o Wings and Subs- order forms will go out before the Christmas break
         o Cookie Dough will run again, but no pies
         o Prom Preview- a possible fundraiser. To be held Feb 12, 2011. Vendors would bring
           samples of their commodity. They could come and set up a table for a fee. Dance studio
           would come to coach walking for dress models. Other vendors could be for limos,
           hairdressers, florists, nail salons, dresses, tuxedos, etc. It would also be advertized to other
           schools. Cyr will wear a tux. Need a chairperson. See Barbara Fraser or Stephanie Simon if
           you can volunteer.

       sold. This $12 covers unlimited mini golf for the 3 hours. Pizza and refreshments will be an
       option. 50-80 kids would be the goal. There is a 100 capacity limit. You can purchase a ticket for a
       Christmas stocking stuffer. We would need to pre-sell the tickets, have flyers around the school,
       have them announce the event on the loud-speaker, etc. Trip fundraiser?

       canes. The band members would earn Community Service hours if they come and play, dress up,
