Section Leaders, if you are not going to be in the area for any of our upcoming commitments please let me know the contact details for your replacement in case of any last minute performance cancellations or changes. May I please ask you to reach out to any of the members of your section that have not been at practice lately to ensure that they return their folder before the end of our year. For these players and any member that will not be at our folder night on June 16th, after sorting through your individual music to put them in numerical order, folders can be dropped off at St Peter’s HS front office (attn Ms Concessi Maclean) at any time before our folder night, at our AGM on June 9th or through your Section Leader.

“The city parking lot is quite near the terrace (10 or 20 paces) where the band is performing. You are able to stop here and unload. There is free parking at the other side of the park and it is about a 5 min walk back to the terrace. All the band members have this option to unload and then park their cars on the other side of the park.”
