Volunteering for Chicken BBQ

It’s almost Chicken BBQ time again!

The date for this year’s event is May 12, 2012 from 2:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. All bands, grades 5 – 12, will perform for this community event. AWBB will be offering both dine-in and carryout meals.

The Chicken BBQ is a major fundraiser for the band programs. Many volunteers doing a variety of jobs are needed to make this event a success.

Volunteers will be needed for set up on the 11th. On the 12th, volunteers will be needed to cut and package desserts, help run the bake sale, package and serve dinners, sell 50/50 tickets and clean up. Various shift times are available.

If you are able to donate a few hours of your time to help make our annual BBQ a continued success, please fill out the Chicken BBQ Volunteer form. Karen Lemle is coordinating the Chicken BBQ volunteers: she will contact you to finalize the details.

Thank you for all you do for our excellent band programs!

Golf Ecology, Jamie Farr Toledo Classic, August 5-13

The Anthony Wayne Band Boosters are in charge of the ecology duties at the Jamie Farr golf tournament again this year and we need your help.

This is one of our largest fundraisers of the year. We encourage you to form a team (of 2, 4 or more people) to take care of the trash around the tees, greens, fairways and hospitality areas during the tournament. As a volunteer, you can attend the tournament for free, even when you are not working.

Band parents, students, alumni, relatives, neighbors and anyone interested in helping is welcome to volunteer.

The tournament is again at Highland Meadows in Sylvania. You can learn more at jamiefarrtoledoclassic.com.

It takes place from August 6 to 12, so our ecology duties run from August 5 (setting up the Sunday before) to August 13 (tearing down the Monday after).

August 6-9 will also be the beginning of marching band camp, so we know the high school students will not be able to volunteer on those days. (But that also means high school families will not be away on vacation that week.) We especially welcome junior high and middle school families to volunteer: it is a great way to get involved as a booster.

For now, check your calendars and start talking with others about forming a team. Starting in a few weeks, you will be able to sign up online for specific shifts. We will email more information and post it here. We will be at the spring concerts and upcoming booster meetings to answer questions and let you sign up in person.

We are also looking for parents from each grade to help us recruit, schedule and plan. So even if you do not want to work on the course, you can donate some time to a good cause.

If you are already sure you would like to volunteer your time, you can reply to this email. As an early volunteer, we will make sure you get first choice in selecting the ways that you want to help.

Thanks in advance. You can also contact us with questions, but, again, we will make sure you get more information in the next few weeks.
