Band Booster Meeting
TUESDAY @ 7:00 pm

This Tuesday night is our next Band Booster Meeting and YOU are invited to come!  Come learn what is going on in Hudsonville bands. 

You know how teachers email you as to what's going on in your students classroom,  going to a band booster meeting is like that times 100 as you not only get to learn what's going on in your students band, but what is going on in all of the other bands and the behind the scenes stuff.  For middle school parents, that's a big bonus as you get to learn what your student will be doing in years to come.  😎

The Band Booster meetings are held in the Freshman Campus media room.  If you walk in entrance A (by the pool doors that face Gemmens) just walk through the cafeteria and the media room will be on the right hand side.
We look forward to seeing  you there!

**  As a reminder, everyone is welcome to attend and participate at band booster meetings.  Only paid members are allowed to vote.  To become a paid member, it costs $1 and is good for the whole school year.  **

Marching Band
Portage Northern Results & Next Competition

Congratulations to the Hudsonville Marching Band on another great performance Saturday night!  The kids worked really hard this week learning their closer and it showed off!  They came in 1st place and received their highest score of the season with a score of 85.65!  On top of that they brought home Best Music, Best Visual and Best General Effect!   Way to go band!!  Keep up the hard work!
Grandville Competition

This week, the Hudsonville Marching Band will be traveling to our neighbor to the east, Grandville,  for their next competition.  Since the competition is so close, it would be great to have a lot of Hudsonville Band fans in the stand cheering our band on!    

If you would like to come support the band Saturday, here are some of their performance for the day and the details regarding the competition!

11:00 am - The Marching Band (Wind and Battery only.. no guard or pit) will be marching at Hudsonville Urban Day.

2:00 pm - The Marching Band will be having their final run through at the Freshman Campus! Please note:  Friends & Family are invited to watch!  They LOVE to play in front of their loved one and it's a great time to watch them WITHOUT their uniforms on so you will be able to find  your student faster at the competition when they all look the same. 

5:30 pm - Hudsonville will be taking the field @ Grandville High School.

Ticket Prices
Adults - $8.00
Students (K-12) and Seniors - $6.00
Family (Maximum of 2 adults) - $24

Direct Your Dollars

We will be collecting all our Direct Your Dollar receipts Tuesday and adding them to our total.  If you have any Family Fare / D&W receipts laying around the house, in the car or in your purse and you would like to donate them to Hudsonville Bands, we would really appreciate it!

We are currently at $41,025 and our goal is to be at $150,000 by the end of the school year so we can raise another $1000 for our band!   Even if you only have a $1 receipt, please send it in. Every $ helps!

In case your student didn't know, there is a Direct Your Dollar Box in the front of their band room and it looks like this.

Otherwise if you are going to come to the Band Booster Meeting Tuesday night, you can also bring them then as Jen Alberda will be there to collect them.
