A-A Boosters say thanks

Friday, November 9, 2012

The Alta-Aurelia Middle School and High School music students as well as the Alta-Aurelia Music Boosters would like to thank the businesses and members of both communities who contributed during the recently held "Just Donate" night. The fundraiser was very successful and the music students continue to be grateful for the support they are receiving. The donations will be put into the students' individual accounts which will help the pay for their next music trip in the spring of 2015. These trips enable students to work with clinicians and compete with other groups from around the United States. Currently it has not been determined where the students will go on their next trip, but past trips have included Colorado, Texas and Illinois.

If you were unable to donate when the students canvassed the two communities and would still like to do so, please either send your donation to Michelle Swanson, PO Box 307, Aurelia, Iowa 51005, or drop it off or send it to either the Alta or Aurelia schools. Checks should be made out to the Alta-Aurelia Music Boosters, and please include "just donate" on the check memo.

Again, a big THANK YOU to those of you who contributed to this fundraiser! Please check out the many great things going on in the Alta-Aurelia middle school and high school music programs by attending any of their upcoming events -- the students would love to see you there!
