eScrip Online Mall

Hopefully you have noticed this

on the side bar and are wondering "What's this all about?" Well! Let me fill you in. The online mall is a GREAT way for you to have eScrip donate to the Lynden Music Boosters while you do your normal, everyday online shopping. There are over 1,000 merchants and the percentage they donate varies but as we have learned from the Safeway eScrip program, every little bit helps and adds up.

The ONLY catch is that you need to start your shopping one of three ways.
1. Start here: and sign up as a registered supporter
2. Click on the link on the sidebar and click the "shop now" button
3. Click on the link on the sidebar and click on the "Download AutoEARN" button. The program that this downloaded on the computer automatically knows when you shop at eScrip merchants.

Now, no worries about any spam or virus' being put on your computer. eScrip is a reliable and safe site.

You shop from the same websites you know and trust and pay exactly the same price.

The specific items you buy are not recorded in any way, just the total you spent from each merchant to calculate the earning to be donated.

With the holidays coming up be sure to visit the
Online Mall first
whenever you shop so we can earn every time!

Q. Why am I asked to write my check to the Lynden Music Boosters?

A. The Lynden Music Boosters has been helping the HS & MS band and choir teachers since September 2000. We are a non-profit, tax-exempt 501c(3) organization. We were re-created at first as a way to help Mr. Herrick make timely payments for travel trips (Disneyland, Silverwood, Wenatchee, etc.). Going through ASB took 4 - 6 weeks. When planning travel arrangements, that was too long to get a check out. We have expanded our scope of assistance in the purchasing of t-shirts, uniforms, purchasing fundraiser products, in addition to processing student travel deposits.

So you can imagine our surprise when we receive something like this
and this
in the mail. In our 8 years of processing checks, this is a rare event. And we thank you. We've noticed an increase in the past year of this occurring more and more. We understand times are tough but if you know that you will be closing your checking account please send cash or a cashier's check. If it is because of financial difficulties, please feel free to discuss any financial payment problems with your students' music teacher privately. They are kept confidential.

Thank you for your continued support of the Lynden Music Boosters and most of all, for supporting your student.

A Band and Choir Family

When your student joins band or choir, they become more than just a band or choir member. They become a family. Especially if they have been in the same group since Middle School. They become close! They share in each other's accomplishments. They are sad when disappointments come.
Today our thoughts are with the Louws family. 2004 LHS graduate, Nate Louws was in a car accident early Saturday morning, October 11th on his way to Spokane. He has suffered a serious brain injury and he is in the ICU unit at Great Falls hospital. He is showing slow progress in his recovery. To keep up to date his daily recovery is being written in a journal. Please visit
If you know Nate, you know his distinctive laugh. Very contagious!! Get well soon Nate! All our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Your Band family
