Music Boosters Dues Are Due

This is a reminder for any parents of music students who haven’t yet paid their $15 Music Boosters dues. You’ve gone to the Marching Mustangs competitions, bought band spiritwear, seen the Fall Concert, volunteered at the garage sale, and baked cookies. Whew! After all that, the Music Boosters can still make excellent use of your dues.

If you somehow paid your dues to RMHS and not directly to the Boosters, please let our treasurer and Mr. Buti know (because the school hasn’t passed it on to us).

The Boosters contribute to the RMHS music program in many ways. In our 2010 fiscal year, the RMHS Music Boosters provided approximately $11,000 of support to the marching band, jazz bands, concert band, pep band, symphonic band, orchestra, and color guard through the following and more:

  • 2 Spirit scholarships
  • 1 Alumni Spirit scholarship
  • 7 Summer Music Camp scholarships
  • 3 Drum Major Camp scholarships
  • Band camp picnic
  • Hospitality for concerts
  • Web site domain and hosting
  • Postage for concert mailings
  • Practice CDs
  • 2 percussion clinics
  • Music and rehearsal tracks for “Fire and Ice”
  • Symphonic band score for “Hymm to the Sun”
  • Balance on Purdue Jazz Fest trip
  • Miscellaneous band supplies
  • Memorial Day and July 4th Parade refreshments
  • Junior High Band Night refreshments
  • 2 keyboard frames and pneumatic wheel sets
  • Custom-sewn flags for color guard
