TWIB Notes – Week of March 12, 2018

Good Morning!

It seems as though we have dodged another winter storm!!

Here are the notes for this week…

The Annual CBPA Bingo Night and Vendor Fair will be held on Saturday, April 28th, 2018 at the KOP Hall. Please, check your email for information regarding ticket sales and other important details. If you have any questions, please contact Liz Pitts at

The Winter Guard and Winter Drum Line will be competing at Atlee High School (Hanover County) this coming Saturday. The Winter Drum Line performs at 12:15 PM and the Winter Guard performs at 3:55 PM. Come out and support these two groups as they begin their final push toward AIA Championships in April! Detailed itineraries will be distributed by the WDL and WG staff later this week.

District Assessment will be held next week at Massaponax High School. This is a required event for ALL Concert Band and Wind Ensemble students. The Concert Band will perform on Thursday, the 22nd at 3:40 PM. The Wind Ensemble will perform on Friday, the 23rd at 2:35 PM. Bus Transportation will be provided for the students to and from Massaponax. We do need several chaperones for each day (Thursday 2-5 PM; Friday 1-5 PM). If you are able to help, please, let me know. The stage performances at Assessment are free and open to the public. Parents are invited and encouraged to come out and watch.

We continue to need more volunteers for KOP Bingo on Sundays and Mondays. Please, sign up to help so we can continue to receive the $500/month donation from KOP. You can also earn 5 points for your Band Account each time you work. Sign up in CHARMS or contact Josh LeBlanc at

Due to a scheduling conflict, the March meetings of the CBPA will be held on March 27th, NOT on March 20th as originally scheduled. The Executive Board will meet at 6:30 PM with the General Meeting to follow at 7:30 PM.

Spring Trip Final Payments are due on, or before, March 23rd. If you have any questions, let me know. Please make checks payable to CBPA. If you are paying with points, simply send an email to me and I will forward the information to Keri Hills (CBPA Treasurer).
