The Walled Lake Northern Music program doesn't run well without the help of parents. We have an active Booster community that works hard to support band, choir and orchestra. For those who were active elementary parents and find themselves missing that environment, we would welcome your help with all things Booster! Our Booster board will be changing in the coming year - we're looking for someone to take on the role of President. Our choir and orchestra rep roles need filling as well. (These are people who assist the directors as needed and represent the program interests at Booster meetings.) So many important roles to fill... It's a great way to get involved, be 'in the know', and get to know people.
A common thing I'm hearing in online communities is how hard it is for us parents to make friends once our kids are older. I'm here to tell you Boosters was the answer for me! I've made some very good friends over the years. We've spent hours together, pouring water for marching band kids during camps and games; we've spent hours outfitting kids with uniforms (both concert & marching band!) and collecting them at the end of the year; we've fed the kids at camps and during the Collage concerts; we've prepped for marching band camp & gone to camp together. My last child will be graduating next year, and I know I've made lifelong friends on this road. It's a journey made much better by sharing it with others.
We're still looking for someone(s) to take over the Concessions chair role. If there is anyone interested in taking on this job, sooner is better than later so you can shadow our outgoing chairs, Joe & Katy Settecerri. You can let them know if you're interested by sending them an email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Additionally, the role of Booster president will be opening up at the end of next year at the very latest (sooner is better, though!) If you're looking for an opportunity to learn the ropes, 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.

We still have cookbooks for sale if anyone is interested they are $22
each! Please contact Amy Walker and let her know if you want one! Crazymomamy5@gmail.com
