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
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.
