September News

Our first meeting is next week – join us on September 5th in the common area by the music department at DHS. We be discussing concession sales, fund raisers and more… 7:00 pm. Remember – if you have a student who is in a music program at a middle or high school level, you are a Music Booster and welcome to come to the meetings.

Also, there is the homecoming chili dinner coming up. This is not a MB event, but a fundraiser for the marching band. It is held at DHS on the 19th of September, after the homecoming parade. This year, it will be held outside in the brick concession stand at the stadium, and there will be some new activities….
