Waverly Place Tree-Lighting Ceremony 2021

Friday, November 19, 2021

The administration at Waverly Place has requested that our marching band perform for about 15 minutes at 6:45pm this Friday, Nov. 19th for the beginning of their tree-lighting ceremony. As Waverly Place has generously donated the space for our Dewey’s Bakery Store, we are performing this service as a way of saying “thank you;” however, it is also a wonderful way to bring joy to our community! Students may use this performance as “hours” for Tri-M, Key Club and NHS Honor Societies.

I realize that this event was NOT on our original schedule and it is a “last-minute request,” therefore I am asking you to try to make it work. I fully understand if you have a previous commitment that you cannot alter. Thank you for trying!

Listed below is the schedule that we will follow for the evening:
