Tag Sale This Saturday 10/15

Our 9th Annual YHS Music Boosters Tag Sale will be held on Saturday, October 15, from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m.


Donation drop-off is THIS FRIDAY 10/14 from 2:30–7:00pm, YHS Band Room.  We are asking for donations of items to sell (kitchen items, clothing, furniture, DVD’s, books, etc.); what a great opportunity to scour your homes for un-used items and do some autumn cleaning!  It would be helpful if you could please bring donations pre-sorted by type of item. (Ex. all kitchen items in one box, all clothing in one bag). 


Parent volunteers are needed!  Especially: from 11-2 and from 1-3 on Saturday (please, with sugar on top?), and hot food items for dinner on Friday/ lunch Saturday, and baked goods for our bake sale table.  Please see the e-mail from parent-organizers Cindy Scinto and Theresa Ryan-Onatzevitch ([email protected]) to see how you can help.


Student volunteers are also needed especially Saturday 1-3pm.  Students are also encouraged to bake items for our bake sale table.  There are student sign up sheets in the band room.


Citrus Sale

The Citrus Sale is our largest fundraiser!  Last year we sold over 1600 boxes of citrus fruit and made a PROFIT of over $26,000!  Please help us make this year’s sale even more successful!  Information was distributed and reviewed in class last week, and is attached FYI.  As the sale benefits everyone, we ask that all band students please sell at least 7 boxes.
