Masonic Summer Band Camp

Hello All:

Today I made available a packet for the Masonic Band Camp. This camp is held at the University of Northern Colorado from June 30-July 4th. The camp will end with a performance in the 4th of July parade in Greeley.
The best part of this camp is that it is FREE!!!! That's right this camp is paid for by the Colorado Masonic Lodge and all you have to do is get your student to Greeley on June 30 and pick them up on July 4th.

Forms are due back to Mr. Smith no later than April 15.
