The Salem Band Boosters cordially invite the members of the 2015 Pride of Salem Marching Band for a relaxing evening prior to heading off for their busy week at Band Camp. Our band members will enjoy an evening of fun, friends, swimming and food.
Dinner and dessert will be provided by the Salem Band Boosters. Parents may send a dessert for our band members. We request that each student bring a 12 pack of sodas (Coke, Pepsi, Sprite/Sierra Mist, Orange, Root Beer, etc.) which will be used at the party. Any drinks not used for the pool party will go towards restocking our pantry and used for upcoming football games and competitions.
Students should bring a swimsuit and a towel.
Students should RSVP no later than Wednesday, August 12th by signing the sheet in the band room. We must have a headcount to insure we have enough lifeguards and food.
The Band Wear order form for our 2105 show, “Remembrance,” is now available.
Parents and Friends of the Pride of Salem –
With the expected growth in the band next year, we are looking for more ways to earn money to support the Band. The Salem Civic Center has offered to make a monetary donation to the Salem Band Boosters. In exchange, parents, students and other volunteers would clean up cans after the Blue Ridge Music Festival. We will meet on Saturday, May 30, 2015 at 11:00 p.m. to clean up after Saturday’s concert and on Wednesday, June 3, 2015 at 6:00 p.m. to clean up after Sunday’s concert. Please note that the Wednesday clean up would be after band practice is over for the day.
To make this work, we will need every parent and student volunteer that we can get. The more volunteers we have, the faster the clean up will be completed. Please sign up to volunteer for this clean up at Signup Genius
Thank you for your support!

Due to the rain and this evening’s forecast, tonight’s pool party for our band students has been rescheduled to next Friday, August 15, 2014 at 6:00 p.m. Thank you for your understanding, and please pass the word!
Mr. Wilkes will be hosting an informational meeting tomorrow, August 1, 2014 at 9:00 a.m in the choir room. He will discuss all things band, including: band competitions, band routines, practice schedules, travelling with the Pride of Salem, etc. This is the perfect time to ask any questions about band in general and the upcoming marching season that you may have as new and returning band parents.
