PTB's Liszt (last updated on 8/15//2014)
The PTB has a bulletin board that our members can use to post items of interest to the entire band. These items are not necessary for the successful operation of the band so they are not disseminated through emails to all band members.
To post an item to the PTB's Liszt (think Craig's List) send the title and the text you want posted to the webmaster. Examples of potential items are:
  • Volunteers needed
  • free stuff
  • things for sale
Sectionals are held from 6:30pm-8pm on Tuesday nights next to the band room.

From Karen - Zoo Train
Hello Zoo Train Pops Band

Thank you so much for spending your morning at the zoo yesterday and your "go with the flow" attitude! It was a really fun event and I think our "train tunes" added a lot to the 50th Anniversary of the Zoo Train celebration! -Karen
Rehearsal Announcements
From time to time we all have important things we want to say to the band during our rehearsal break. We are a large and diverse group so it seems reasonable to have some type of guidelines concerning these announcements.
The Board of Directors recently adopted a policy that is currently in force. Please read this policy.
