Looking Ahead

  • June 14 — Graduation (all Concert Band & Wind Ensemble Students Perform)

Ad Book

This is the largest & easiest and MOST lucrative fund raiser of the year.

PLEASE don’t wait! Start TODAY!

Businesses in the town EXPECT the Band Students to solicit ads. AND — you can sell ads to businesses outside of Stratford, as well as taking out an Ad for your family to wish “Good Luck” to a member. (Many people see the ad book as a type of “yearbook”, and as such want to purchase an ad for the sentimental keepsake value).

AND

Every student MUST raise funds for the Band/Guard — so why not buy an ad? All ads are Tax-Deductible (as the Band Parents are a 501(c)3 not for profit). Never pay out of pocket — buy an ad and get the tax deduction!

Keep in mind:

* Many students will be going out TODAY to try and scoop up ads from Prime locations, such as Paradise Green & Barnum Ave.

* Some ads are limited (Back cover, inside cover etc…) and will sell very fast — we will send out notifications when they are sold).

Here is the form that you will need — https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B093prcObtSVcVlHQTFDRDNXREU

See a Sample Ad Here — http://www.bunnellband.org/Sample_Ad_Page.pdf

You can also purchase an ad online here — http://www.bunnellband.org/Site/Purchase_an_Ad.html

Learn more about the ad-book here — http://www.bunnellband.org/Site/Ad_Book_Info.html

PLEASE:

• Please sell as many ads as possible, as 100% of the ads will go to the students’ accounts.
• Your family members may also take ads as well.
• Ads can be from out of State.
• Ads are Tax Deductible

All ads must be turned in by Sept. 15, 2017.

PLEASE — send ALL Ads to Bunnell HS (Address on ad form) AS SOON AS YOU GET THEM!
