Picnic Sunday and links/reminders

Picnic. Please join us at the Welcome Back Potluck Picnic this Sunday, August 21st, from 5:00-7:00 pm at the McLean Central Park Gazebo. Sign up to bring a dish to share at this SignUpGenius and bring a blanket or lawn chair. We look forward to gathering informally to kick off the school year. Students can join in the annual class competition in Flickin’ Chickens, led by Doclings Norah and Hugh, and meet fellow orchestra families in a casual atmosphere. Parking is available at the Dolley Madison Library or the McLean Community Center. Don’t forget the bug spray!

Links. Make sure to sign up for the orchestra e-newsletter and please consider sponsoring the Langley Orchestra Society (LOS). New students need to purchase the required polo shirt and t-shirt by September 14 before our spiritwear store closes for the year. Students have a little more time to purchase the required formalwear as polo shirts will be worn for the first concert in October. Students eligible for financial assistance through FCPS should make sure to fill out this confidential Google Form if they would like LOS assistance for the required apparel items and preconcert meals.

Students do not need instruments the first class of the year – Doc will announce in each class when instruments will be needed. Welcome back & here’s to a great school year!
