For those parents who don't know it yet, next Friday night, March 28, is our Evening of Jazz event. All are invited to come and hear some great jazz music. This event will be held at Williamston elementary school.
The Williamston school jazz bands will perform from 6:30 to 8:30, and the Walter White Jazz Quartet will perform from 8:30 to 10:00 pm. The Silent Auction will be held from 6:30 to 9:00 pm.

Hope to see you there!
We are in need of white Christmas lights--both icicle type and strands of white lights--to decorate the gym for the Evening of Jazz. Please make sure to label them with your name so we can return them to you after the event is over. Please plan to drop off these lights by Wednesday, March 26th, at the high school or middle school band room.
If you have questions please contact Nancy Deal at email@example.com
Our Evening of Jazz is fast approaching and we need some help. We have an amazing line-up of professional jazz performers coming to perform for the evening. The MS and HS Jazz bands will also be performing.
Outside of great music we have a silent auction at the event. What we are looking for are items that can be put in the silent auction. Who do you know who could donate a service or item to the auction? Do you have a vacation home, timeshare or service that you would be willing to donate for the auction?
Things to think of:
If you have an item or service to donate, contact Nancy Deal at 517-281-0562. She is the team leader on this event and needs our support. You can also email Vicki Schneider at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will make sure she gets the information.
How else can you help? SPREAD THE NEWS OF THE EVENING OF JAZZ FEATURING THE TRUMPET SOUNDS OF WALTER WHITE, THE FRED KNAPP TRIO AND A SPECIAL GUEST AT THE PIANO. MARCH 28TH. TICKETS WILL GO ON SALE SOON!
The Haslett Jazz Night is Saturday, February 22nd, from 7:00-11:20 pm. The Williamston High School Jazz Band I will be performing. WHS Jazz Band II members are encouraged to attend but are not required to.
Jazz Band I members need to report to Haslett High School at 7:00 pm. There will not be a bus providing transportation for this event. Students must find their own ride to and from Haslett.
Attire for the evening is Jazz Band Black. We will be performing from 8:05-8:40 pm. We will begin warming up at 7:15 pm. I would like to encourage our band members to stay for the entire event. There will be performances all evening long by area schools.
For those attending who are not performing, there will be an admission charge. I don't have specific information regarding this year's prices, but last year they were advertised as the following: Prices were: $10 adults, $20 family, $6 students/seniors, children under 5 and seniors with HIP free.
It should be a fun night of music. I hope many of you can attend.
Thanks. Lynn Kelsey
