Re:  Performance at Carillon Assisted Living Center in Fuquay-Varina on September 26 at 7:00pm

I realize that this is very late notice, but I would like to take the Chamber Wind Group from our Wind Ensemble to the assisted living center noted above on Tuesday, September 26 to play for the residents…one of whom is my mom…and it’s her birthday!!!  It’s a surprise!  
As a reward, I’ll take the kids over to Cookout in F-V after the performance for milkshakes (my treat)!!!

So, this is how this will work:

5:30pm Marching Band rehearsal concludes; return to band room, grab a snack; change into band polo shirt (provided). Students may wear shorts, etc. from rehearsal.
6:15pm Depart Athens Drive for Carillon (via activity bus). Students may drive if parents grant permission.
6:45pm Arrive Carillon and get situated/warmed-up
7:00pm Performance 
7:30pm Performance concludes
7:50pm Depart Carillon for Cookout
8:00pm Arrive Cookout and get shakes
8:30pm Depart for Athens Drive
9:00pm Arrive Athens Drive; return polo shirts

And although this is NHS hours, etc., it is also something very, very sweet to do with our musical gifts.  And it will give my mom (and me) a unique gift as well.  Thanks for helping me create this memory!
