Camp Information

Posted by Mr. H on Jul 06, 2004 - 01:28 PM  •  Filed under: highschool
I have put some information in our downloads area that is of interest to many of you. You should be receiving a letter in the mail very soon with information about the Cornfest Parade and Band Camp. A copy of that letter is available for download.

IMPORTANT CORRECTION : Camp ends on Thursday, August 5. Apparently, there are a few incorrect dates in the letter. The performance will be on Thursday, Aug. 5 at 2:00 pm at Western. (The downloadable document has now been corrected).

Also, I have put up the cabin assignments for band camp. But I'm sure no one cares about that...

All of this (and eventually more) is available here in the downloads section!
