Indiana University Young Winds Program –

The 2017 Indiana University Young Winds program begins Jan. 28, 2017. It is a program designed for middle school instrumental students as a supplement to the instruction they receive in school. The program focuses on small-group lessons as well as a full band experience for students surrounding the Bloomington campus.

It is a wonderful program. Many of our students have participated over the years. I can’t speak highly enough about this opportunity and the benefits of participating.

Young Winds will meet on Saturdays from 9 am to 11 am in the Musical Arts Center (MAC) on the IU campus.  The MAC is located on Jordan Avenue, one block north of 3rd Street. There is a $15 registration fee and $60 tuition fee.

Cookie Dough Money Due –

The cookie dough fundraiser has come to an end and the money is now past due. The sale was a huge success, but now we have the job of collecting all the money. Thank you to all that helped with this project.

Annual Butter Braid Sale Coming Soon –

Butter Braid time has rolled around again. This band fundraiser is the most anticipated and profitable fundraiser of the year. People are always asking about this sale. The kids are not required to participate, but if we could get participants to just sell 3 – 4 butter braids we will have a tremendous sale. It takes a lot of resources to keep a program of nearly 300 operating and this sale is a big part of meeting that need.

The sale will start during the week of Jan. 16. The company is looking at a start date of Jan. 17 or Jan. 20. There is also a chance for sellers to earn a $1000 scholarship.

Have a Wonderful Christmas and New Year!
