Welcome to The Pride of Durant
To all band families,
First-Chilis Restaurant will be doing several Give Back Nights on behalf of the band: The dates are November 23rd and 24th, December 8th, 9th, 15th, and 16th. A Give Back Night is where Chili's Donates a portion of sales to the band for those who present a flyer (soon to be down downloadable from the Pride web site). This can generate a lot of money for the program if we spread the word and get folks out for the events. You have to have the flyer for the meal purchase to count. Thank you to Chili's Restaurant and Regina Clinton for getting this set up.
Second-Band Cards and Fudgenomics Fudge and Nuts are on sale. Please support these fundraisers if possible. Band Card due date is December 18th and Fudge orders have to be in by November 30th.
Third-Liberty Bowl Red Long Sleeve T's and Blue Hooded Sweat Shirts will go on sale next Week. I will be sending a flyer with specific ordering information will be out as soon as available. The shirts will have The Pride of Durant High School Band on them and the official Auto Zone Liberty Bowl Insignia. Nice looking shirts. The Ts will be $20.00 and the Hoodies will be $40.00. We purchased these the last time we went to this bowl and I still have my shirt. Good quality.
Fourth-Money-We are currently $40,000.00 shy of our trip goal. We do have students who could use some extra financial help. If you or someone you know would be willing to donate any amount (no matter how small) we will make sure that it goes to a student that deserves it.
Fifth-I would like to thank you all for the tremendous support this organization and our community gives to our students and school. I have spent a lot of time thinking about how blessed and thankful I am for you all. It is very humbling and sometimes overwhelming when I consider how far our program has gone over the years. This year is no exception. Superior Ratings and first place award, 130 All-District Students (7th-12th Grades), 33 Qualified for All-State Auditions, etc... I could go on and on. I am so proud of our group, staff, and boosters and we aren't even half way through the year.
God Bless you all and HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!
Mr. Gregg (Coach)
