Enchilada Dinner Tickets for Sale! Mmmmm!

enchiladas

* This is not an actual photo of the dinner we will serve; however, it sure looks pretty close to it!!

Mmmmm, you can almost smell and taste the enchilada dinner that’s coming up!

It’s almost that time of year where we have our Annual Fall Enchilada Dinner Event/Fundraiser which is scheduled for Tuesday, November 11, 2014 in the Warren High School Cafeteria. 

This event is our largest fundraiser held to support our Warren Warrior Band as they represent our school and community at our football games, competitions and other local events.  The dinner plate will consist of two enchiladas, rice, beans, salad and tea and cost $7.00 per plate.  Soft drinks and desserts will also be available for purchase.  Entertainment will be provided by our own Warrior Band, along with a special appearance by the Jordan and Connally Middle School Bands. 

Band students received their allotted tickets yesterday so you’ll be seeing a good number of “sales people” out there.  If you don’t have a child in Band but would like to purchase a ticket, email apena@ceoexpress.com and we can get tickets to you.

Help support the Warren Warrior Band Boosters by purchasing tickets to this dinner.  You can eat at the cafeteria or you can take your orders home.  

Thank you again for supporting your Band!

I’ve had a few sign up already however we still do need quite a bit more.

Please sign up on Charms or email me at:

However, tomorrow, Saturday, October 18, there is another competition at Gus Stadium which is similar to the one we’ll have at Farris the following week.  I plan on being there at 6:30 a.m. to see how they set things up and get a good look at the logistics and how things are done. mIf you would like to join me, please come on out to Gus tomorrow on the Visitor side and when you get there, just ask for me or let them know that you’re observing because you’ll be doing the same thing the following week.

“Finish Strong”

Finish Strong Warren

 

“FINISH STRONG  —   to me, two words that more clearly define a call to action than any other two words in the English language.  I challenge you to find two words that more absolutely define a performance objective.  The words ‘finish strong” are pervasively used in our culture, and they are a perfect example of how the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.  When you combine “Finish” with “Strong” you create a powerful platform for action.  And, when faced with a challenge or adversity, I remind myself …

Regardless of what came before or what matters most right now is how I choose to respond to the challenge before me.  Will I lie down or will I fight?  The choice is mine and I choose to FINISH STRONG.”   (Dan Green)

“You Might Be a Lucky Winner!”

Facebook photo 3A_friendly_reminder_is_very_important

A reminder to let parents and guardians know that October’s Booster Meeting is:

            Tomorrow, Tuesday, October 14, at 7:40 p.m. at the Band Hall. 

Please plan on attending.  It’s important to have everyone and, yes that includes YOU and your spouse or significant other, to attend these meetings in order to keep up with upcoming Band events and be “in-the-know.”  It’s also important to let your kids in the band know that you are involved and are aware of his/her activities with the band.

We have a number of activities that are coming up in the next few weeks that we will need your help in ensuring we have a successful year.  No successful team can operate with only a handful of people; it does take all of us to make it a success.  The bottom line to all of this is:  “we do it for the kids!”

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me via email or call me at (210) 355-1449.  I look forward to seeing each and every one of you at the meeting.

**  Oh, the lucky winner part?  Yes, we will give out a lucky prize at the meeting and it might be you.

 And the winner is ...

What is your incentive to volunteer?  The only thing I can tell you is that you will be appreciated so much and that you will get a warm, fuzzy and wonderful feeling of helping and representing Warren High School and letting the other schools and community know that we have the best parents and friends in San Antonio!
