We are excited to help the BCHS Band…
It has been a long time in the making, but finally, we are able to announce our “News for Notes” fund raiser. This began over a year ago when the BCHS Band kicked off their fund raising campaign to buy new uniforms and pay for a band trip. We worked with Band Director Allan Heath and came up with a program where Band members and supporters would sell subscriptions to the Citizens’ News for a substantial portion of the list price.
We know the Citizens’ News is well read in Braxton County, but we also know that many of our readers pick up a weekly copy at their favorite news stand. We also know that due to their busy life, they occasionally miss an issue. We feel, this dilemma, plus gift subscription, student subscriptions and other potential subscription sales leaves the door wide open for the band and their boosters to make a substantial amount of cash to aid their cause.
Here at the Citizens’ News we have supported our schools and our youth for the more than 40 years we have been in business. And I don’t mean just lip service. I have no idea how much money we have donated… how much printing and advertising we have given to our youth over the years, but that’s what communities do and I am proud to contribute.
We are willing to give half of the subscription price for in-county subscriptions to the band. We will give up to $10 of every outs-of-state or e-subscription the band sells. Every category of our subscription rates will reward the band. If a band member sells a subscription to their aunt who lives in Charleston, and she is a senior citizen, the band will still get to keep $7.50 of that money.
If you have a paid-up subscription to the Citizens’ News, you can still help the band. Renew that subscription through the band, regardless of when it expires and we will give the band $2 of that money and extend your subscription.
The sales campaign kickoff at this Friday’s football game and run through December 31st. We hope you will join us in helping the BCHS Marching Band grow and prosper. We will have more about this program in the weeks to come.
Will return soon...
