If you have already given us your $13 check for your T-shirt, you do not have to send in an order form (we have your size down already!). If you wish to order a T-shirt, please bring in the attached order form with a check made out to “McCarthy Band”. PAYMENTS AND ORDER FORMS are due no later than Wednesday, December 3 (our next rehearsal!).
Have a great Thanksgiving, and please be sure that you practice over the two week break from ATWE rehearsals!
