Dewey's - Help Needed

Hello Band Family,

We hope you all had a safe and enjoyable holiday and were able to share some time with family whether virtually or in person. We want to thank everyone who helped make this year's Dewey's store a success. Even without sugar cakes on our last two days, we surpassed last year's sales, and we did it safely. Later this month we'll share more details, and credits will be applied to band accounts for those who worked.

We have a few lost and found items. If you think they may be yours, please email us and we'll send you a picture to verify.

food container left in the fridge- clear with green latch, 3 compartments, had cheese & crackers and carrots in it

2 small black umbrellas

We have one final task for this season. We need to move all our fixtures and supplies to the band barn and field storage at the school, and we could use a few extra people to help. This will require lifting and moving some heavy items. It should only take a couple of hours to load the truck and unload again at the school. If you're able to help, please sign up at the link below and meet us at the store at 10am this Saturday, January 9th.

Fruit & Nut - Extra Available

posted Dec 15, 2020, 7:54 AM by Athens Drive High School Band   [ updated Jan 9, 2021, 4:58 PM ]

Thank you to everyone who sold fruit and nuts this year and to everyone who helped move it when it arrived!  Once again, you adapted and came through for the band.  

Hopefully, by now all your customers have received their products and you're enjoying your own delicious purchases, as well.  Please see the list below for remaining items available for purchase.  Nut items are being held at the Dewey's store, and you can drop by and purchase them there.   If you're interested in purchasing fruit, please email us at fruit@athensdriveband.com, and we'll arrange to bring it to the store for you to purchase.  Temperatures have been too mild to leave it there.  For all purchases, exact cash or check to the Athens Drive Band Boosters is preferred.

Credit for your sales will be applied to accounts after the new year.  Purchases of extra items will not be tracked for individual credit.

Thanks and have a wonderful holiday!

It's hard to believe, but we're now in the home stretch for this year's Dewey's store.  However, there are still shifts available.


We're in need of an experienced adult worker for upcoming shifts THIS FRIDAY, SUNDAY and MONDAY.  There are also still a number of open shifts on weekday mornings for the remainder of the season. Please take a look and see if you can help.  

Here's the sign up link: https://signup.com/go/hNexnww


When you sign up, please be sure to use the name of the person who will actually be working and in the comment field, indicate the family name on your account and whether the worker is an adult or student.  

If your student is signed up, please check your shifts and make sure there is an adult assigned to work with them.  


Thanks!
