LVW members should pack clothing for four days of rehearsal and performance. Please remember your personal uniform items, which include the black shoes/socks, gloves, and t-shirts. You can check the packing list for band camp posted on the blog from 06/01/2012 to make sure you have all of the necessary items.
We will be having a SWIM NIGHT on Friday! LVW will be going to Plamann Park just to the north of FVL's campus. They have a nice swimming lake and beach. So don't forget to pack a swim suit and towel. LVW members will also be able to play disc golf at the park if they prefer (Bring your own discs for golfing). Any cost for the swimming will be covered by LVW. Also on the menu that night will be a COOK OUT, provided by our wonderful crew of LVW chefs! Rumor has it that most members actually gained weight during band camp due to the wonderful meals.
We will be attending church on Saturday evening at Immanuel, Greenville at 5:30 PM. Bring some nice casual clothes for the service. We will be treated to Brian Heyer's famous LASAGNA for supper that night! Can't wait! LVW will be busing the band to Chilton on Sunday for the parade. The buses will be returning to FVL following the parade by approximately 1:30 - 2:00. If you will be picking up your LVW member following the Chilton parade, the pick up point will be St. Martin’s Lutheran Church, 717 Memorial Drive, Chilton, WI 53014.
If you are going to be picked up following the parade, and are not returning on the bus or with your school’s transportation, the following procedures MUST be followed:
1. Your parents must pick you up where we are changing out of uniform. For this weekend, that will be on Sunday, at St. Martin Lutheran Church, Chilton. If you are picking up your child at St. Martin, you must be there when the band is ready to leave. If you are not there when the band is ready to leave, your child will come with the band.
2. Your parents must check you out with the attendance chaperone from your bus. This must be done with you and your parent present.
3. If your parents are not there when the band is ready to leave, you will come with us. We leave no one behind – EVER!
4. You may not ride home with anyone else other than your parents UNLESS you have a written permission signed by your parents, and UNLESS that written permission is put into our hands. DON’T FORGET THE NOTE AT HOME, because there are NO EXCEPTIONS!The Chilton Father's Day parade info is as follows:Parade start time is 11:00 AM, and will begin at the county fairgrounds at the corner of Madison Street (Hwy 57) and Chestnut Street. It will proceed west on Main, north on State, east on School, south on Madison, and east on Main. The parade will end at the corner of Grand and Main Street. This has been a great parade for us in the past. Lots of parents, groupies, and family members are on hand to cheer us on! In addition, it gained a reputation as a “CANDY” parade, so if you have little ones going along (or big “Kids” at heart), bring along bags and buckets! There is no reviewing stand in this parade, and no judging, so if you want to gather with other LVW family, I would suggest somewhere along the beginning of the route on Madison Street, since it is nice and wide, and very straight. Once there, find the groupies!
