Jul 032013

See you by 10:30am on Thursday, July 4th, at Holly Creek Retirement Community (5500 E. Peakview Ave, Centennial 80121). Please wear your maroon/shorts outfit. Our performance goes from 11:30am until 1:30pm. We will dismiss around 2pm. Holly Creek treats us all to the barbecue lunch. Parents, family and friends are welcome to attend, and pay for lunch. Colton, you will need your drum kit and carpet. Trevor, you will need your keyboard.

VETS, the trip packing list and itinerary have now been uploaded. The sets will be posted real soon. We will meet on Friday by 9am at the US Air Check-in Counter (DIA West side). Be sure you have your PASSPORT! If you are bringing a cell phone on the Europe trip, be sure you have your phone on “flight mode,” so you don’t get any extra data charges from texts or phone calls while abroad. You can always take it off flight mode to make a call when needed.

NEXT REHEARSAL – Sunday, July 14th (6:30-9pm). The July dues will need to be turned in at that time (except for Trevor who already paid).

It’s important that all families participate in our King Soopers fundraiser, if at all possible. This fundraiser greatly contributes to our financial aid, uniforms, supplies, and trip expenses. Dottie will have the gift cards available for purchase – just give your $25 check to Ed, and he’ll get it to her. Please bring $25 in cash, or a check made payable to the Denver Jazz Club, for each card you would like to purchase. Remember, you just use the card, same as cash, at King Soopers and Loaf & Jug (great for gas purchases!), each time you shop. Then we get 5% of the sales – you can’t beat it! You still earn your points and gas discounts as long as you use your King Soopers Rewards Card, along with the gift card. Thanks for all your support!!
