Land of Band – 11.11.19

Land of Band and Color Guard

Another Sweepstakes!
The regular season for Marching Band has come to a close.
Although we anticipated on having a fantastic show, we could not predict the outcome of these field tournaments. El Dorado has competed against THE finest music programs in Southern California, and to consistently be at the top is amazing. Congratulations on everything you have accomplished this season.
Enjoy your success but remember what it took to get here!

Food Committee

SCSBOA Championships
I want to thank everyone involved at the Ramona Tournament. I just have to say I have incredible parents, it is wonderful how everyone can step up and take action, even when the band is ready to eat before we are ready to serve. I seriously could not do this without all of you. So, thank you again.
Our next event is on Saturday, November 23 at Citrus College. We will be serving Mediterranean food from Luna Grill. We will have steak, chicken, and veggie skewers, hummus, pita bread, and rice. The extra funding for this meal is being provided by generous senior parents. We are asking again for our prep chefs, a few extra items, and fruit. The link is down below, and the times are still approximate for set up, serve, and clean up. I cannot believe this is our last food event of the year. It has been an amazing season.
For this event, we are asking for all families with the last names “S-Z” to please contribute 2 dozen homemade or store-bought desserts.  Please, NO NUTSand package your desserts in a disposable container. 
A special thank you to the Judd family and their amazing Snickerdoodles at every event.
Please make sure to drop off food at the first drop off in the morning, pick up, or second drop off before the event.  
I truly appreciate everyone who has helped out this year. It takes a village to feed these incredible students.
Thank you again,

Thank you for your cooperation and support of our award-winning program!  You are each a vital part of the great success our kids enjoy as part of the El Dorado Golden Hawks Band & Colorguard!
