Bring your money to buy tickets for the Basket Raffle. There are always band needs, especially at the end of the year. Please donate and you might win a really cool basket! If you'd like to donate a basket, please contact Mrs. Sumner! Her info was in a post below. For a band this size, hopefully there will be numerous basket donations. You must be present to win!

Thirty-One Fundraiser Update
Dear Thirty One Fundraiser participants,
Thank you so much for being a part of this fundraiser. Unfortunately we did not sell the necessary number of raffle tickets to provide all prizes offered. Carolyn Bishop has worked very hard to help us keep the most important aspect of this fundraiser -- the $3 to your student account for each ticket sold!
So to keep this important detail, adjustments had to be made. The following are the updated prize awards:
The Raffle will be for 15 days stating on May 6! This allows the raffle ticket holders a chance at the most popular Thirty one Products, and a great chance to win to boot!
Our top seller has received $40 in free Thirty One product.
Those that sold 12 raffle tickets received a free Pro-duffle bag personalized for free.
The student receives $3 for each ticket sold awarded to their student account.
Please note, Carolyn Bishop has also offered a party booking incentive. If any parties are booked and at the time of booking the hostess mentions “HHS BAND” Carolyn will honor $50 credit to that individuals band account, payable at the time of the qualifying party held prior to August 1, 2013.

Turn in your 31 Fundraiser!! We don't want to postpone this, make sure you are selling those last few tickets to raise money for your band account!!

Band Banquet Date Change
We are really sorry to mess up anyone's calendar, but we have to cancel the Band Banquet that was scheduled for May 9, 2013. There were too many conflicts for our Senior Band students. We will try to reschedule towards the end of May. This way, we can all enjoy each other's company and celebrate the year properly.
HOWELLPALOOZA TONIGHT!!! PLEASE READ!
Ok so if you hate reading long posts, here is the short version:
Howellpalooza is a great hidden gem of a concert that features all of our non traditional musical groups along with various other talent. It is the band's variety show. We have worked very hard to put it together, but I did a terrible job of publicizing it. IT IS TONIGHT AT 7PM IN THE HHS AUDITORIUM. It's free, and its always interesting and entertaining. We would really appreciate it if you came out and joined us!
Read on if you want to hear more:
Some of the acts that will be there tonight:
Howell percussion ensemble
(they will be doing 2 "stomp" style numbers and an exiting legit piece as well!)
Howell Jazz Band
(performing "Caravan" and a cool funk tune)
Howell Flag Corp
Howell Twirler Corp
"lightsaber guy" (he was very popular last year at the talent show and he returns for his encore tour)
The award winning scout comedy show
Howell School of Rock
performing original and cover tunes at a very high level of epicness
Howell Choir's "calamity"
HHS choir's premier men's a cappella group
and last but not least,
Howell Bluegrass (with real banjos, fiddles, mandolins!)
It really is a hidden gem. You should come check it out. Save our concert from being underpopulated.
