Paul Gloeckner, Treasurer – Columbus North Band Booster Association
Perhaps you did not realize as parents and guardians of our CN band, you are all Booster Members. A booster meeting is not a meeting for only Booster Officers. In booster meetings you will learn about the program and the upcoming events and projects regarding the band. Meetings are a great place to ask any questions you may have, or if you have any suggestions that you would like to share. If you are wanting to help out or volunteer but do not know where to start, meetings are a great place to find the information you need to help with your decision. During these meetings, we as parents and guardians, come together to make this the best possible program it can be. The more parent involvement we have, the better program we will become.
Booster meetings are held on the 2nd Thursday of the month (unless there is a conflict). However, the next Booster meeting is Thursday, Nov. 15th at 7 PM due to BOA being on the 8th.
