Indy Posters - Getting Closer!

DSC_0026.sm
Have you started thinking about your Indy poster? Posters should be 22" wide by 28" tall, and are tentatively scheduled for hanging on Tuesday 11/12. If you haven't started collecting pictures yet, take advantage of the SmugMug albums assembled by our Booster photographers (link here).

Freshman and 8th grade parents--if you haven't seen information about the posters yet, you'll be receiveing it shortly. Please note that these are a surprise for first-time marchers...please keep them a secret!

3rd Quarter Cookies

Please keep bringing in cookie donations! Following their halftime performance at each home football game, the Band and Guard celebrate with cookies and drinks in the end zone. We also invite the visiting band to join in. Donations of prepackaged cookie can be left with a director or in the cookie bin, which is located in the uniform closet (look for the yellow lid).

The timing and setup of 3rd quarter cookies prevents us from being able to closely monitor whether cookies contain nuts. We ask that anyone with a nut allergy avoid the cookie booth.
Cookies!
