We WILL be running a bus from Shoreland to FVL that Saturday morning. It will return Saturday evening for PREVIEW-only students, and another bus returning Sunday evening for students remaining all weekend. Planned pickup/drop-off spots are Shoreland, Wisconsin Lutheran HS, and the Allenton park 'n' ride. We CAN stop in Fond du Lac if there is a need - if so please email LVWmarchingband@gmail.com ASAP to make plans.
There is preparatory work still to do to ensure the 2019 season kicks off strong. Please continue to ready your bodies by exercising, stretching, and finding ways to make your muscles stronger. Even a 1 pound flute gets heavy after holding it up for several minutes (with excellent posture!)
Practice your instrument. Make sure it works correctly so we don't need to spend valuable time doing maintenance. Make sure your skills are at the top of their game because you will be challenged by our staff and our music as we push toward excellence.
Know someone who might be interested? Invite them to join you, at least for PREVIEW. Take it from me, marching band is way better with a friend (not that you won't have 75 new friends from around the state within a few months...)
Make sure you've registered for the season, or at least emailed LVWmarchingband@gmail.com to let us know you'll be there so we can prepare for you.
And remember the more important preparation we're all enjoying this season, the advent of the baby Jesus, God's gracious gift to us and the fulfillment of his ancient promises. Say a prayer of thanks for the undeserved physical and spiritual blessings we receive every day, and ask God to help you find ways to use those blessings to his glory.
I can't wait to see you in January.
