Hello Ryle Band Booster friends and families,
I hope you and your family are having a wonderful summer. June 30th marks the end of the fiscal year and that means the end of board of director terms for most members. I wanted to thank Kevin Gregory, Jodi McGinnis, Tyra LaVerne, Doug Penix and Robin Erpenbeck for serving as leadership members of our Booster organization. Staci Ramsey will continue on as secretary for another year. (Officers serve a 2-year term.) Thank you all!!
We have some fantastic new board officers starting including Ryan Royse as President, Lee Coates as Treasurer and Mike Webster as Vice President. This is a great team of parents who I think are going to do a fantastic job leading the Band Booster organization and supporting Joe Craig as the new Ryle Band Director. Together, I know incredible growth and opportunities are going to happen for the marching band, concert bands, jazz and winter programs.
I have really enjoyed my time with the Ryle Band which started when Maggie joined in 8th grade. Lots of long Saturday competitions, loading trucks/unload trucks, spring concerts, serving food, banquets, band camps, RTOB, concessions, fund raisers, bingo, pushing pit and props, board meetings, after practice meetings, emails, FB postings … well it’s a long list. But it was really a lot of fun! Thank you friends for all for your support and the many volunteer hours that you personally gave to support our great music programs.
Best of luck for a great 2017 marching band competition season and I hope the Ryle Tournament of Bands is a huge success!
All the best,
Tracy FuchsOutgoing (!!) Ryle Band Booster President
