        We would love to see all the behind the scene people who helped make our season a success- maybe you donated snacks, helped with uniforms, Color Guard  or choir dresses.  Perhaps you took time to help load or unload the truck with equipment or moved things to to field for the shows.  You may have also helped sell concessions for the Play or tickets.  We would love to see you at the Booster Meeting Monday, so we can share in some light appetizers and sweets as a thank you to you.  Without your help we couldn’t be as successful as we are.

         

        Please make sure you are checking the www.epchsbands.org web page.  Amy and Ken update it quite regularly to let us know what the Music Department has coming up.  With the Holiday Season upon us, there are going to be many opportunities to see the children perform.

        December 15th is Breakfast with Santa at the High School- we are looking for some volunteers to donate sweets that morning- if you could donate please let us know.

        December 15th is also the Madrigals Feaste dinner at the High School- check out the webpage for the order form.
