Great Stuff for October November

26 Oct 2017 10:43 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Greetings!

What lovely weather we are having this week! If you haven't walked outside for the pure joy of walking outside - YOU ARE MISSING OUT!

It is October and that means better weather, high school football, band contest, and HALLOWEEN! We have just a few reminders for you and some volunteer opportunities coming up in the next couple of weeks.  If you like good old fashion entertainment, you will enjoy the UIL Marching contest this weekend. If you can volunteer a couple of hours in the concession stand - that's even better!

Giddings is hosting the 2017 UIL 18/26 Marching Contest on Saturday, October 21, 2017.

We have 20 bands coming to this competition this year. It is the Band Boosters biggest fundraiser that we have. The band boosters just contributed $25,000 for new uniforms for the band. We are needing volunteers to help in different areas during the contest. The band parents (especially Senior parents) would like to watch the Giddings band perform at 7:45 (the last band performance of the night)

  • Here is where we are needing help:

Ticket booth (2 people per shift/not related)  4:30-6:30 & 6:30 - END

Concession Stand:  Set-up 9:30-12:3012:30-2:303:30-6:306:30 - END

Halloween ​at the LIBRARY

Come one and all to the Giddings Public Library’s annual Community Halloween Festival! Sponsored by the Giddings Public Library, Thrivent Financial, The New Horizons Lion's Club and the Leo Club, this free family event will be held after school from 3:30-5:30, on Friday, October 27th. We will have Halloween games and prizes, coloring, crafts, face painting, photo props and a kid-sized haunted house!
