Pre-Season Patriots game against the Carolina Panthers!

Pre-Season Patriots game against the Carolina Panthers!

Volunteers needed for the Pre-Season Patriots game against the Carolina Panthers on Thursday, August 22, 2019. We don’t have the call times yet, but it will probably be mid-afternoon. I will follow up with more details as soon as I have them.

If you are interested or have any questions, please email Bonnie Holbrook at bonniehbmma@gmail.com.

This is a profit sharing event, and all events at Gillette are a huge support for the Music Association in general, as it comprises the majority of the budget for the Music Program.

The second 2019 Marching Band uniform payment is due on Thursday July 11th and is $75.

Payment can be made by cash or check (That can be handed to Mr. Marcotte or Mr. Shafer or to the BMMA treasurer Kathy Stearman)

Payment can be made using profit sharing (Email BMMA treasurer, Kathy Stearman at kathy@stearman.com )

Payment can be made with a credit card via our website at the following link: https://www.bmmamusic.org/make-a-payment/

Payment can be made via credit card in person before practice. (Please find BMMA treasurer Kathy Stearman in the band room)

Lastly, all marching band students should have received a 2019 Marching Band Handbook. The handbook needs to be reviewed by student and parent. The signature page needs to be signed by student and parent and returned to Mr. Shafer. If your student did not get a handbook, please have them stop by Mr. Shafer’s office in the band room and get a copy. The handbook will not be put on the website.

Volunteers requested to fill in at a Concession Booth at Gillette for the Rolling Stones concert on July 7. Call time will be 3:30pm at Gillette, and carpool time at the back of BMR would be 2:30pm. This is not one of our regularly scheduled events, but should be a lot of fun to work!
Please notify Bonnie at bonniehbmma@gmail.com if you are interested.
Block Party Festival at Gillette!!!

Block Party Festival at Gillette!!!

12 volunteers needed for the each day of the Block Party Festival at Gillette on Saturday 7/20/19 and Sunday 7/21/19. You are more than welcome to volunteer both days, if you would like! We don’t have the full details on the call time to Gillette yet, but need to be proactive in getting people. We have already lost 2 booths this year due to not having enough volunteers, and Gillette provides at least half of the budget for the Blackstone Millville Music Association. Please email bonniehbmma@gmail.com if you are interested/available. This is a great chance to support our community, help the students, and can be a lot of fun!

All events at Gillette are profit-sharing opportunities. This next school year includes a band trip for all BMR High bands, and this is a chance to earn some money toward your student’s fees for the trip. Or, if you don’t have a student currently involved in the music program, this is an opportunity to help out a student in need. Profit-sharing can be applied to private lessons, Color/Winter-Guard, and so much more.
