WLNMB, along with our directors, would like to wish the graduating class of 2019 all the best as they move forward into adulthood. For some, that'll mean college; for others, it could be a a training program or a job, or even joining the military. Regardless of which path you choose, we just know that the future holds great things for you! Remember - hydrate, wear your sunscreen, eat something, put your seat belt on, ask for help when you need it, make good choices and know you're irreplaceable! We wish you only the best.
Congratulations, Class of 2019!
Special Note: When making any payments to Boosters (fundraisers, trips, camp, retreats, uniforms - anything!), checks should be made payable to 'WLNMB' or 'Walled Lake Northern Music Boosters' or even 'WLN Music Boosters' (unless stated otherwise). If you're not sure, ask your director! We received some checks recently that were made out to 'things' other than those three options (i.e. WLCSD, WLN, WLN Boostes, WLN Choir Boosters, WLN Marching Band, etc.) and we're not sure the bank will accept them. Incorrect checks can create a lot of extra work for me plus we can be assessed bank fees on checks that are returned. So, any assistance anyone and everyone can give to make sure checks are properly filled out would be greatly appreciated.
The year is rapidly winding down. We have one more Booster meeting for the year, on June 12, and then we'll adjourn until mid-August. We look forward to welcoming the incoming freshman class of music students. We will have a table at registration, where you'll be able to get information about sponsorships, purchase Happy Cheeks ($25 - we do have them in stock if anyone needs a stadium cushion!) , or car decals.
Our needs for next year include:
Concessions Chair to run our 3 concession stands in the winter
Scrip Coordinator to run our Scrip program
Incentives Chair to input data on for the student incentive accounts
Marching Band photographers
If you're interested in taking on one of these roles, please let Beth Stockdale know: email@example.com
2018-19 Booster Meeting Dates
IMPORTANT: We've learned that our current concessions chairs will be unable to continue in this role. We need someone to step in and take over the mantle from them. It's a big job, but it's very manageable. We only run 3 concession stands per year! Please, reach out to Joe & Katy Settecerri if you're interested in learning the ropes with the goal of taking the reins from them, firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Young Americans camp is coming to WLN this summer! This event is a fundraiser for the performing arts programs at WLN (NOT Boosters). If you have a student (grade 3-12) who likes to sing, act or dance, this is a great camp for them! For more information, see the flyer.
