All Music Parents – Fall Festival Volunteers Needed

Dear Analy Music Parents,

It’s time for Analy Band Wagon’s Fall Music Festival – our biggest fundraiser of the year!

This wonderful event takes place over October 26th and 27th. It takes a lot of work and a lot of volunteers and we ask ALL music parents and students to help out at this event. There are many different jobs and lots of time slots, so I just know you will all find a spot that works just for you.

Here’s a link for the various volunteer shifts:

If you have any questions about the different jobs, please feel free to email or call me. I guarantee each position is fun and easy. I will explain each job at check-in. If your student happens to be playing during part of your shift, we will absolutely make sure you will be covered to go listen.

Thank you in advance for your participation! I’m really looking forward to this event and working with you all.
