Your time, and definitely your efforts were much appreciated. We could not have done it without your help. This is one of the biggest fundraiser the Band Boosters have and it takes a lot of work. A special than you to fudge chairpersons; Rick Giuliano and Diann & Rick Bielefeld for all their work organizing the fudge sale.

This Thursday you are all invited to come watch and enjoy the music of our high school band members.  This is our annual "Recital Night" to showcase band members who will be performing at the OMEA solo and ensemble contest this Saturday @ Wilmington HS.  The show begins at 7pm in the high school auditorium.  This is a perfect time to video tape and or photograph the performances, for this is not aloud at the contest Saturday.
