Taste for Music Days – save these dates!

Canes – Wednesday October 2 from 10am-10pm
A portion of every purchase will be donated to the Lakota West Upbeat Club. Also, we are competing with Mason! They had their night on 9/4, and whichever school brings in the most money on their date gets a plaque and free Cane’s for the drumline for a year!! That’s right, our drumline will be performing at CANES around 7pm on 10/2.  Print this flyer to share – click here for flyer
