Welcome back from the Thanksgiving Break.  Living here in Round Rock, Texas, we certainly have a lot to be thankful for.... I hope you and your families had a nice time to get together, visit, share stories and traditions, and just slow down for a bit.

 Tournament of Roses Souvenir Video

Rose Parade DVD - Round Rock Band Boosters has contracted with GOAL Productions to produce a video of our band’s performance at the 2015 Tournament of Roses Parade, as well as Bandfest.  We are making the videos available to our parents and families to purchase.  Just think…no worrying about getting that perfect angle or missing something because you’re behind a video camera!!  The video will include all TV coverage from the networks that will cover our band’s performance, a high camera video of the band’s performance on TV corner without any station logos or announcers’ commentary, and our band’s Bandfest performance with some atmosphere video of the kids before and after as well.

DVD’s are available by preordered only.  The order form is attached and is due December 19.  Please contact Alison Shoepe VP Fundraising if you have any questions.
