12/6/2018 8:16:00 AM CF Band starts tree, wreath, swag sales
The Cannon Falls Band Booster Club started one of its fundraisers last week.
They are selling Balsam and Fraser Fir Christmas trees, wreaths, and swag at Ace Hardware and Althoff Hardware.
The price for a tree is $40, with the wreaths at $25 and swags at $20. There is also a combination deal of a tree and wreath purchase for $60 available.
The Cannon Falls Band students will be at both locations selling trees on the weekends, with Ace and Althoff's collecting payment during their business hours on the weekdays. The Boosters acknowledge their support.
The Boosters will also be selling Christmas table centerpieces at the Holiday concert on Friday, December 14, at the CFHS auditorium. The price is $20. The concert will start with the 5th graders from 6 to 6:45 p.m.; 6-12 grades from 7 to 8 p.m.
Last year the Band Booster Club provided $750 in scholarships, bought two brand new tubas, paid for numerous instrument repairs, paid for the steel pan drums' tuning and repair, and a few more music department requests. They will also be assisting in donating funds to continue the musicals and plays at the school in the years to come.
Boosters hold the "Slice of Jazz" performance fundraiser in April as well.
