What a Weekend! What's Next...

I don’t know about anyone else but I was exhausted yesterday and I know that I didn’t put in the same amount of work that our kids have over the last week. I don’t think we could be prouder of the 2019 Lancers for their effort last week in rehearsals and the effort in every performance in each parade last weekend.

Thank You’s

A couple quick thank you’s to extend today to our parade chaperones. It was a great group each day with a mix of rookie and veteran chaperones whose support was greatly appreciated by the students. I hope that those who volunteered will continue to do so in seasons to come.

Fan Gear Webstore

Our United Team Elite webstore is open for business until June 27th. Please share the Lancer team store password of 77FAN19 to everyone so we can get everyone in some awesome Lancer gear!

Raffle Tickets

Raffle tickets sales are still going so get the word out and sell some tickets! We are still accepting raffle prizes if you know of any business who would like to donate.

Raffle ticket turn-in will be on the night of Tour Talk June 26th. Turn-in will be before Tour Talk but the timing is still TBD.
