Lakota West Upbeat Meeting is Thursday 9/21, Freshman band room

Uno’s Dough Raiser – Sunday 11/19

URGENT:  The Uno’s Doughraiser planning committee needs a volunteer to head up advertising sales for placemats and aprons.  The deadline for printing the placemats is in roughly 2 weeks.  A volunteer is needed to solicit local advertisers, obtain necessary artwork, and coordinate production with the printing company.  Contact Jennifer ASAP at for details.

Business owners:  How would you like to support the band and get the word out about your business to families attending both Uno’s Doughraiser and Jazz ‘n Cakes, as well as customers at Taco Bell locations in the West Chester/Liberty Township area?  Sponsorship opportunities are available for as little as $250 for placemat ads.  Contact Jennifer at for more information.

Uno’s Doughraiser Volunteers needed:  We’re looking for volunteers for the following chair positions:  Kitchen Lead, Volunteer Lead, Talent Chair (coordinate scheduling of musicians with Mr. Nordyke and Mr. Carr), and Postcard Distribution.  We’re also looking for a volunteer magician (can be a student).  Our next planning meeting will be held October 17th at 6 pm at Uno’s.   For more information contact Jennifer at
