Please wear your maroon band shirt, khaki slacks, dress shoes and socks.

Please bring any ticket money from yesterday’s concert that still needs to be turned in.

Be sure you have all three tunes completely memorized: Five Foot Two, Creole Love Song, and It Don’t Mean a Thing.

Please remember that we will have the required parent/student Sacramento Trip meeting right at 5:00 pm, at the Westminster Elks Lodge (downstairs). Please bring your completed, signed forms with you to the meeting. Also, please bring copies of both sides of your current medical card, unless I have the exact same card copies from last year.

Remember to bring dinner money, as we will car pool to dinner on our way to rehearsal.

Please remember to bring your listening CD’s to Sunday’s rehearsal.

Please bring your May dues and Swiss Trip Payment #3, if you haven’t already done so.

We are also planning on rehearsing: Maple Leaf Rag, Do You Know What it Means, That’s a Plenty, Royal Garden Blues, Si Tu Vois Ma Mere, It Don’t Mean a Thing, and Wolverine Blues.
