      MVACG Message from Cathy

      posted Sep 4, 2017, 7:49 AM by MiamiValley AdaptiveColorGuard

      Great job at Northmont Saturday night! The rain held off for us at least we got our first performance in. Remember, there is no practice Monday because of Labor Day.  We do perform at Miamisburg on Friday, September 8th. We will need to meet earlier, and we'll do our practice there before the game. I feel that we are perfectly ready. I will get that time out to you as soon as I speak to the band director. Please look for that memo coming from me as soon as possible. Thanks again for Saturday night. Happy Labor Day.
