Wish I could have sent this out last night but work got in the way. Wanted to make it official that the tree lot is now CLOSED for the season. A HUGE thank you to all the parents who chipped in to help - without you we would not have had the successful year we did again (final numbers to be calculated yet and should be available at either the January or February band parent meeting).
The only thing we have left to do is tear down the lot and pack up the trailer. This is about a 2 hour job if we have 8-10 adults plus a few hard-working band kids. Traditionally, we have done this on the Saturday between Christmas and New Years Day BUT, this year that falls on Dec 26. Not only will that be a day that many of us will be (trying) to recover from what was (hopefully) a blessed Christmas day with family but it is also the U of L/UK basketball game (12PM tip-off).
I see 3 options for doing this and would like to have anyone who was planning to help or is available to help weigh in on what works best for them. Once I have heard back and the majority weigh in, we can determine when we'll do this. Please look at the 3 potential proposed times below and either reply via Facebook (its posted there too) or send John (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Scott Pridemore (email@example.com) an email indicating which of the 3 times you are AVAILABLE (yes, you can choose more than one):
1) Saturday, Dec 26 at 9:00 AM (so we can be done before tipoff)
2) Saturday, Dec 26 at 3:00 PM (after the game - sober please!!)
3) Sunday, Dec 27 at 1:00-2:00 PM
As with setup, the more hands, the quicker we'll be done.
Thanks in advance,
John and Scott
