This is a message from the port huron northern bands, Sunday, October 5

Your students should be bringing home calendar updates about once each week right now.  We are currently on TWiB #6.  If your student did not bring this home, check the left hand column of the PHNBANDS.org website.

Tomorrow is a marching band rehearsal at 2:45, ending before 6 PM.  This is the last rehearsal before festival on Tuesday.

Don’t forget to purchase your marching festival tickets for Tuesday night.  If you purchase them through us, we get to have the money stay at Northern.  Tickets purchased at the gate send the money to MSBOA.  Tickets at $3 and $2 for students and seniors.  Checks payable to PHN Bands.

Our performance is at 8:30, but PLEASE show up much earlier to ensure that you have a good seat.  Bands start performing at 6:30.

Our marching band students should eat dinner before they arrive at PHN at 4:45 in full uniform to ride the buses over.  We will have our group photo taken first, before the other bands, otherwise we will have to take our picture AFTER the performance Tuesday night.

Good luck to the Notrthern Husky Marching Band.
