No-Show at Christmas Party and Fiesta Medals

Earl Warren Band logo V

Being President of the Band Boosters, I felt compelled to let those attending the Booster Christmas Party at the Band Hall tonight know that I won’t be able to attend the Christmas Party this evening because of restrictions placed on me after having emergency eye surgery after the Thanksgiving Holiday. 

As a result of the surgery, I am restricted to stay home and be in a position where I must have my face looking down because of an air bubble that was placed in my eye.  This is no fun at all.

I hope you enjoy yourselves tonight at the Booster Party and thank you all for helping out this year.  Also thank you to the Board members for getting things ready for the party tonight. 

By the way, don’t forget the deadline for ordering the Warrior Band Fiesta Medal is on December 19.  Please send Christie Tran an email letting her know if you want to order some.

 Thank you and see you soon.

Twas a Few Days Before the Booster Christmas Party!

 

Christmas Party invite

‘Tis a Few Weeks Before Christmas’
(paraphrased excerpt from “Tis the Month Before Christmas” by Unknown Author)

“Tis a ‘few weeks’ before Christmas, we’re all going nuts;
With so much to do, there’s no ifs, ands or buts.
Buy presents, hang tree lights, pop cards in the mail,
Send gift packs, thread popcorn, find ‘tamales’ on sale.

Decorations need stringing up all through the house
And you haven’t a clue what to buy for your spouse.
School concerts, receptions, open houses with friends,
Long lineups, short tempers, tying up the loose ends. ….”

…. And then I was going to add some more witty lines to the above, but I just ran out of words, lines, and my imagination went dead. My intent was to grab your attention about the Booster Christmas Party Dinner/Meeting next week on Tuesday, December 9th from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Band Hall. The Boosters will provide brisket but we ask you to please bring a side dish.

Aside from the Dinner Party, we will have a “White Elephant Gift Exchange” for those who would like to participate. Please make the cost of the gift around $15.00. Adults should attend only. Please come join your fellow Boosters for an evening of Christmas cheer and hilarity and a chance to meet others without having to do any Booster activities.

Send an email to Christie Tran at lstran001@gmail.com to let her know who will attend. Or you can sign up on the ‘volunteer’ slot in Charms under the Booster Christmas Party. By knowing how many people will attend, this helps us in determining how much brisket to get.

If you have any questions, contact Christie Tran at the above email address. We look forward to seeing you at the Party!

Merry Christmas!        Happy Holidays!        Feliz Navidad!        Happy Kwanza!

THANK YOU!

Warren Thank You musical

 

On Thanksgiving Day, I will eat a hearty meal in El Paso with my wife, daughter, son, daughter-in-law (with expectant granddaughter) and my beautiful grandson and I will give thanks for all the blessings I have with my family and in my personal life.  I only wish my sister and my granddaughter were here.  As I think about my life, I have been blessed so much albeit the ups and downs that have occurred.

However, please bear with me and as President of the Warren Warrior Band Boosters, I must give “THANKS” for the following:

  • The number of Booster volunteers who have given their time, hearts and commitment to the various committees that we have. I’ve seen the best come out of the Chaperones, the Roadies, the Uniform Team and those who helped with the sewing of the uniforms, the After-School Meal group, the Enchilada Dinner team, the Silent Auction team, the NBA Concessions team, the Spirit Items group, the Hospitality group and of course, the ‘Grand PooBah of Everything’ – Ms. Tran. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – without them, we could not do very much. They are the “oxygen” that the band breathes in order to continue.
  • The Board of Directors. What a great group we have to guide the Boosters through the year. They dedicate their time to help out with the Boosters and commit themselves to making the Band better.
  • The kids! Working with the Boosters has given me the opportunity to meet and get to know a number of kids who I see many times during the week.  I see them practice and I note how they put their souls and passion into their performances.  Sure, they are a bunch of kids who act up at times and don’t listen when they’re supposed to do so but when it’s time to perform, they know it’s “Show Time” and put forth their best.  Gotta love these kids!
  • The parents who have helped out when needed. They somehow show up when we need something and they support the many activities that we have going on.  Many of them are in the Boosters but not all of them but yet they still help out.
  • The Directors. Each of them have spent countless hours in preparing the kids for the season, getting them prepared at practice, fixing their instruments when needed, teaching them the fundamentals of music, giving advice (in music, school and sometimes in life) and obviously directing them at the performances.  Each director is unique in themselves with different personalities but they all have one common purpose – to direct, lead and strive for excellence in our kids.
  • The School’s Administration and Staff, whether it’s Mr. Empson, the Principal or his assistants, the staff, the teachers, the cafeteria ladies, the campus police and the custodial staff, your help and support of our Band and the programs we have are appreciated. We see many of them occasionally at the band hall or at the many events we have and we thank you.
  • The Sponsors who have donated to us throughout the year and hopefully for the rest of the school year. It’s difficult at times to ask a company for things but through the goodness of their corporate responsibilities to the community, they understand our needs and are good corporate citizens.  For that we thank all of them who have given to us.

And last, I give thanks for being given the opportunity to serve as the President of the Boosters.  This year, I’ve gained even more respect and love for this group of kids and this wonderful organization.  When I listen to them play on the field or in the band hall or in any auditorium, I am so proud of them and I get goose bumps at times.  Humbly, I thank you for this wonderful experience.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving Day.   By the time you finish reading this, it will probably be time for seconds!  Enjoy!
