The mission of the Anamosa Music Boosters is to support and enrich the music education experience for students in the Anamosa Community School District by encouraging excellence in music arts through leadership, collaboration, financial support and technical assistance.
If you like music, you are a music booster. You do not have to come to meetings to be a music booster. You do not have to have a child or grandchild in music. You do not have to apply to be a booster or pay to be a booster. All you have to do is want to support music in Anamosa.
The music boosters give students the opportunity to participate in music programs and expand their talents, education and appreciation. This is accomplished throughout the year with the financial support and direct assistance from the boosters.
Over the years, music boosters have provided funds for marching band uniforms, sound systems in the gym, band, choir rooms and auditorium, color guard items, marching drill expenses, choir robes, show choir costumes, music, choreography and risers as well as many other needs.
Boosters raise these funds through fall football concessions and special events. Special events this year include our annual Sounds and Sweets event on March 18 and an adult prom/casino night on April 2. Future events may include a show choir competition in the Ellen Kennedy Fine Arts Center and a formal dinner in the atrium.
This year, we added a fundraising opportunity to address concerns people had about door-to-door product sales. People said they would rather donate one time and have all the money go to our schools rather than to a company somewhere else. To make this happen, students are selling Anamosa Music Booster sponsorships. Half the money donated goes to the music boosters and the other half goes into the students’ RAW accounts to be used for travel or music expenses. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, call Mary at her number listed below.
Music boosters provide assistance to directors such as chaperoning and providing food and other needed items during out-of-town competitions, mending marching band uniforms and costumes, and volunteering for other various events such as honor band and choir.
Please share your time and talents by getting active in the Anamosa Music Boosters.
The music boosters meet once a month from August through June. Watch for an email from Mr. Meyer announcing dates of meetings. Meetings begin at 7 p.m., typically last 1 hour and 15 minutes and are held in the AHS library.
