Below is a message from Mrs. Randolph about the ad book:
Dear Kelvin Grove Band & Chorus Members & Parents,
The Kelvin Grove Band & Chorus invite you to show your support of them by advertising in the KG Band & Chorus Ad Book. The Kelvin Grove Band & Chorus continue a tradition of excellence in music performance. Our students earn top honors in prestigious competitions and performances. The financial support from this ad book is essential to their continued participation in competitions and clinics. A portion of the money raised is used to purchase new music equipment that is used by all K-8 students in the D91 music department. Our ad book is a souvenir program that will be distributed at all concerts. Thank you for your generous support.
We are needing parent volunteers to contact area businesses to renew or join our Ad Book Supporters. If you will help Mrs. McFerron, please email Mrs. Randolph and Mrs. McFerron will contact you.
The Ad Book is a great way to honor your child with a memory ad from family and friends. Also, please contact the places you do business with - car, hair, doctors, real estate agents, insurance agents, etc. and ask them to purchase an ad.
This year we shall recognize the student(s) who sell the most dollar amount in ads. at the Annual Christmas Musical.
Each Band & Chorus Member received a printed copy of the Ad Book Form and one is attached with this email for your convenience. We thank Mrs. McFerron for agreeing to continue to be our Ad Book Designer again this year. She has done an outstanding job with our past Ad Books.
Please return Ads AS YOU SELL THEM. Please do not wait until the deadline to turn the ads in to Mrs. Randolph.
Thank you for supporting our KG Band & Chorus!
