Winter Guard – Dayton Trip Meeting

After the Friends & Family show on Thursday, we will have a brief parent meeting regarding the Dayton trip. (We leave one week from Tuesday!)

We’ll have all the info for you, so please be there.

We fly out of LAX and were thinking a carpool would be a good idea. Check your calendars now to see if you can volunteer to either drop off at LAX on Tuesday, April 2nd (flight departs at 10:25am) or pick up at LAX on Sunday, April 7th (flight lands at 1:45pm). Let’s discuss on Thursday.

Thanks!
