There are so many thank yous to go around...
=> Thank you to our band dads and alumni band dads who came out week after week to move our props and equipment!
=> Thank you to the MacAdams family for making all arrangements for our rental truck all season!
=> Thank you to everyone who went to Hershey to cheer us on!
=> Thank you to WDBP Board for organizing the parents bus and tailgate dinner in Hershey!
=> Thank you to all of our impromptu prop holders! We never would have been able to use the props without you!
=> I would like to thank our incredibly talented staff. Some staff members drive OVER AN HOUR each way for rehearsals! Each year our staff grows. They are so committed to giving the kids the tools they need to succeed. Our staff is extremely caring, talented and committed to the program. They almost make me obsolete! So, to all of our WDMB staff, THANK YOU!!!!!!!
Looking ahead, there are still 5 possible football games and the West Cape May Christmas parade before this season is complete. While our largest focus is usually on our TOB competitions, we must now keep up our energy and attendance until the end. Students who do not meet these final performance obligations will not receive any band awards/honors. This is not the time for students to disappear. The full band has obligations and just because they are “only football games” students are not to schedule other events or create conflicts. Every performance is important and every member is obligated to be in attendance!
This week we have only one event, FB on Friday. Next Thursday, 11/10, the band will be making audio recordings of the field show. Color guard will begin preparations for the Christmas parades.
Friday we have football at Collingswood HS The WDMB will be performing pregame.
