From Mr. Repucci:
Hello Melrose Band Families,
I want to thank everyone – parents, students, alumni, friends – who helped out with the Home Show last weekend. It was a great night and everything ran so smoothly and professionally. Thank you to Joel Zimmerman for organizing the whole event! The Band played great. I am really happy with how our young group is doing this year! See you all soon.
From Crystal Olwert (Bandaiders President):
Hi Band Families,
I would like to thank you all for your support in making our NESBA Home Competition a success! We could not have pulled it off without the help of our current band parents, alumni parents, students, and faculty! We had many compliments throughout the evening and even emails sent from band directors thanking us for such a smooth competition and for being gracious hosts.
A huge, special THANK YOU goes to Joel Zimmerman who has so graciously chaired this event for several years! You have done a wonderful job keeping things organized and going with the flow when necessary. You will be greatly missed next year, maybe you can come by and say hi!
Thank you all again!
and finally from Joel Zimmerman:
Thank you for helping at the competition last Saturday. It was a great success due to your hard work. We had a wonderful mix of newcomers, veterans, alumnae, and students that pulled together to get all the various chores covered.
I received very nice emails from two band directors that I would like to share with you:
On behalf of the Everett Marching Band I want to extend thanks for a well run contest Saturday evening. Your parents association did a fabulous job throughout. Always a pleasure participating in this event.
Your people did a GREAT job. They were friendly, and welcoming, and knew what to do and where to go – I never lacked for direction, or information.
Please extend my sincere thanks to the Melrose Bandaiders and the students who helped out. What a wonderful time we all had!!
On that note, I’ll finish with my appreciation for everyone stepping up and taking care of each task. I hope you had a good time wherever you were located during the competition. Looking forward to having more time to talk the next time I see you!
