First off, thanks everyone for volunteering to house the Augustana band students. We did it! Here is part of Loretta’s e-mail…“a huge thank you to the Burke Band Boosters for their willingness to help make this happen, we were able to place all 62 students! All but two of the host families are either current or former Burke Band Parents! Without the generosity of the Boosters, the Augustana students would not have been able to come to Omaha. Burke parents are undisputedly the best anywhere! I look forward to meeting many more of them on Wednesday evening!”. Thanks everyone, this is fantastic!
Concert. Whether you’re hosting a family or not, we’re encouraging everyone to come out for the Augustana Symphonic Banc concert this Wednesday at 8:00 in the Burke auditorium. It will be a great show.
Next Booster meeting is this Thursday, February 21, at 7:00. (Watch the weather. If it is bad and school is closed, we won’t be able to have our meeting.) We have a lot going on (Jazz Band Benefit Concert/Dance and the HWAA event). Hopefully you can make the meeting. And note next month’s meeting is March 7th (a little earlier in the month).
