We hope everyone had a wonderful Homecoming!! Congratulations to Jade Rush, Sarah Manes & Matt Berlin for having the honor of serving on Homecoming Court. The parade on Friday evening got the weekend off to a great start and a win against Shaker Hts. kept the momentum going! Even the weather seemed to clear up for pictures! We saw so many pictures floating around social media and everyone looked so festive! A well deserved break for our hard working FCMB!
We’d like to thank everyone for their donatons for 3rd qtr. If you’d like to help out again , please let Kary know! We are still in need of water donations to get us through three more home games (assuming we have a home playoff game). If you’d like to donate water, you can drop it off outside Mr. Poremba’s office on Friday when you drop your marcher off.
The e-mail for hospitality is email@example.com. Thanks again!

FCMB End-of -the-Year Banquet
Our annual FCMB Banquet is Sunday, November 11th from 3 pm – 8 pm. For our new families, this is a wonderful evening where the students get to dress up and celebrate all their accomplishments for the band season! We have a wonderful meal at LaMalfa, followed by awards and then our annual scholarship Chinese Auction!! Each marcher is limited to 2 guests (due to the size of our band) and tickets are $25 each. Marchers do need a ticket as well.
Reservations with payment are due on October 25th. We will also take credit card payments at the Indoor Concert ONLY.
Our Chinese Auction at the banquet is our sole fundraiser for our yearly scholarships. In 2017, we gave away “10” $500 scholarships to our Senior class. This committee has been working very hard behind the scenes to solicit local and national businesses for our baskets. However, if you have business or personal contacts that would like to support the band with a donation, please contact Kim Bednarski for a donation letter.
We are in need of baskets, small and large to create our raffle baskets. If you have any that you were thinking of throwing away or ending them to goodwill – please send them our way!
Also, if you are cleaning house and find some things that are new that you never have used and want to donate for us to put in our baskets, we will take them off your hands!
Lastly, if you’d like to help out on this committee, please contact Kim Bednarski at email@example.com
