Spaghetti Supper Fundraiser 4/8/16

Dessert Sales: We are asking each household (with help from band student) to provide ONE cake or similar dessert dish to be sold. These desserts must be delivered to the BHS Cafeteria by 5:30 pm on April 8th. Your student may bring it to school (in the morning) or after school between 5:00 and 5:30 p. m. Additionally, we ask that you please send your dessert dish on a disposable platter, as it is very difficult to return dishes after the event.

Guaranteed “seating” is only for those patrons who have purchased tickets…After all…It is a fundraiser! (for the private lesson scholarship fund for next fall and for a storage building/unit).

Family members may come to hear each group perform for free, but they may have to stand if they choose not to purchase tickets.
