Hello MVACG Families -

Practice

  • Monday, November 13: Practice at Jane Chance Elementary Practice time6:30pm - 7:30pm 
  • 6:00pm - 6:30pm: Technique block - Not mandatory. Since it is the first day of Winter Guard practice, we are not having technique tomorrow. We will have technique block starting on Monday, November 20.
  • Instructors and performers will be starting in the cafeteria. Parents will be in the gym laying out the tarp and cleaning it by taking off old tape & markings from last year.
Fundraising:
  • I still 5 addresses from your friends and family that I can sent fundraising letters to from Dylan, Hunter, Jayla, Kayli, Mackenzie, Maria, Meagan, and Olivia. Please bring me your addresses tomorrow night.
  • Since MVACG is not affliated with any school district, we do not recieve money from any school district. We operate on donations only.
  • I send out letters to over 100 businesses each year and to the addresses you give me. 
  • It takes about $7500 a year to run MVACG. This money pays instructors, buys shirts for performers & instructors, pays for insurance, buys equipment, licenses the trailer, pays PO Box, pays for fundraising envelopes/letters/stamps, and pays for the end of the year banquet. The only way we get this money is through donations.
