A Special “Thank You”

 

Thank You Boosters

Once again, the Warren Warrior Band Boosters have exemplified the true definition of teamwork, commitment and hard work by ensuring the Warrior Band and Color Guard were at their best during Fiesta events this week. 

Many people don’t see the work that goes on and all the little things that must be done “behind the scenes” to make sure that the Band is prepared and ready to perform, whether it’s at a practice run before the Band Festival this Wednesday, the actual Band Festival on Thursday and the Battle of Flowers Parade on Friday.  And let’s not forget the week before when the Color Guard, the Percussion and the Herald Trumpets had their practice run for the Band Festival. 

Just think of some of the things that had to be set up for the Band for Fiesta events.  Logistical plans and preparations had to be done to ensure the Band got to Alamo Stadium for the Band Festival and then to the Parade on Friday.  Food had to be ordered, delivered and then served to the students on the practice days and the events.  Water, snacks, and other beverages had to be purchased and brought to the band hall.  Uniforms had to be prepared and ready for the students. Chaperones and roadies were asked to volunteer and scheduled.  The water wagon (gator) had to be secured and decorated for the Parade.  I am sure I may have forgotten some other items that had to be done but you get the gist of what all must be done to get our kids ready for performance.

And after all is finished, when we see our kids perform and realize that they are the “Purple Pride from Northside” we realize that our time spent is worthwhile and rewarding and we can relax.  We are so proud of our kids!

And another “Thank You” also goes to the Band Directors and Guard instructors for their tireless efforts in getting our kids ready with their music, routine and the instructions on how to perform.

And then, one more “Thank You” … to all the Band and Color Guard kids for your work in doing your best in representing Warren High School and the Warren community.  Thank you for your courteous manners in working with the Boosters.  You make us all proud of you. 

So as President of the Band Boosters, I give a shout out and a hearty “Thank You” to all the Boosters who volunteered their time and helped during Fiesta week.  As I’ve said time and time again – “we cannot do it without you.”

Thank you very much.
