I would like to take a moment to thank our 2016-17 booster officers – Jane Branham, Michelle Trudeau, and John VanVleet – for all of their help, and to welcome our officers for next year. For the 2017-18 school year our officers will be: Julie Kurtz, Chapter VP; Liz Hassay, Secretary; Tabetha Pfaff, Treasurer (Payments), and Lori Conners, Treasurer (Deposits). And, once again, thank you to everyone who has volunteered their time with Darby Music Boosters!

2017 Color Guard Auditions Coming Up

Tryouts for the award-winning Darby Color Guard will be held in May – dates to be announced soon. This is a great way for non-musicians to participate in the Marching Band. Spread the word!

Uniform Notes

Students who have outgrown (or lost) their summer shirt, shorts, or band shoes need to order new ones at before the end of school. We do not keep a lot of these in stock- please check now!

This year we will be collecting a $50 deposit for Band Camp before the end of school. Payment options will be sent out soon.
