The Elk County Catholic Band will soon be hosting the PMEA District 2 Band Festival. This will take place from Wednesday, January 23 – Friday, January 25. With this awesome experience comes the huge task of housing all the students involved. Over 160 students will be participating, and about 140 need to be housed. At this time, there are still over 40 students that need places to stay. These students are high school students that are very self sufficient. They really only require a roof over their heads, places to sleep (beds, air mattresses, couches, etc.), breakfast for two mornings (cereal or toast), rides to school each morning, and rides home in the evenings. In exchange, we will offer you two free tickets to their concert on Friday night. It promises to be an awesome concert. Dr. Stephen Bolstad, a St. Marys native, will be the guest conductor and has chosen a very diverse selection of music for the performance.
Please consider hosting a student or two (or more). We would be ever so grateful. Please contact Paula (335-2792) or Darcy (594-6204) within the next day or two. We hope to have all assignments made by Thursday, January 17. Also, please let us know if you have any animals or smokers in your home as we do have a few students with allergies. We want this to be a pleasant experience for everyone involved.
Thank you so much for your consideration! We hope to hear from you!
