Dear Parents, On behalf of Mayfield Band Boosters, I would like to wish you a wonderful 2009-2010 band season. We have a busy schedule this year, with plenty of great football games, band shows, and of course, our Hawaii trip. I hope you enjoy watching and participating in this year’s fun-filled season. As you know, Mayfield Band Booster is nothing without your support. This is why we have set a goal to get as close to 100% membership as possible. Doing so allows us to continue supporting the incredible band programs in the Mayfield City Schools. Our band programs would not be possible without the leadership of gifted teachers. Many thanks to Jim Sanford and Mike Palermo, and all the music teachers for sharing their wonderful gifts with our children; we look forward to seeing what you have in store this year! It is Band Boosters’ intent to provide you with as much information as possible to ensure a great band season. We hope you keep this informational booklet and reference it often. If you can not find what you are looking for, check our website at www.mayfieldbandboosters.org, or feel free to contact any one of the Directors or Band Booster Officers listed on the inside cover. Don’t forget to mark your calendar for the first Band Booster meeting on August 19th . I look forward to meeting you! . Tammy Clines President, Mayfield Band Boosters
