Ooltewah/Collegedale Parade and Carols by Candlelight

The Ooltewah/Collegedale Christmas Parade is this Sunday, December 7th, at 3 pm. Please have your child at the band room by 1:30 and in uniform. Band wear warm ups with red shirt underneath, black socks and marching shoes. Colorguard is the same. Parents, you can pick your band member(s) back at the band room after the parade by 4:30. Please be prompt as someone has to stay there with your child until you get there. Transportation to and from the parade will be provided by bus.

Carols by Candlelight will be presented on Sunday, December 14th.  For the new members, this is a formal concert with the Ooltewah Chorus. It is at the Doubletree Hotel downtown at 407 Chestnut Street. We apologize for the late word on this, but we have been working with the hotel to get the same rate as usual to keep from raising ticket prices. We finally got word they will honor last year’s prices. Your $10 ticket includes the performance as well as desserts from the Doubletree. As this is always a popular event, we have 2 performances. One is at 3pm and the other is at 7pm. You may choose either you wish via the Signup Genius link provided below. This is only a seat reservation. Payment for your seats must be turned in at the band room. Please put your payment in a sealed envelope with your name, your child’s name, table number, and performance time on the outside. There will also be a large envelope on Mr. Denton’s door that your child can drop the envelope into. A parent, Sue Hofflinger, will be there at the end of band practice to collect funds.  WE MUST HAVE YOUR MONEY FOR YOUR TICKETS BY END OF DAY MONDAY 12/8, OR YOUR RESERVATIONS WILL BE RELEASED!! If you need to make other arrangements, please contact one of us officers to see what we can do. This is important, as this event has been a sellout just about every performance. Remember, the chorus parents will want to see their kids as well.

Please note that we will not have a booster meeting this month. Please, please be diligent about paying your fees, if you are behind. We know it is a time of buying and giving, but don’t forget to give your fees to the band of which you child is benefiting from. We will be feeding them between performances at the Doubletree, and that meal isn’t free.
