YANKEE CANDLE SALE UNDERWAY!
The Tempo Club has kicked off its annual Yankee Candle sale. This is one of our biggest fundraisers of the year and helps raise funds for the needs of the music departments in grades 7-12. For complete details about the sale, check out the fundraising page. To place an order, ask a music student for a catalog. Or you can go to the Tempo Club Yankee Candle Shopping Site and place an order. These orders will ship directly to you in 7-10 days, and the Tempo Club will still get credit for the sale!
 
 
LOOKING FOR A STRONG VOLUNTEER!
The Tempo Club is in need of an individual or team of people who would consider running our concession booth at the Home Football Games starting next year. We would like to identify interested parties by the first week in October so those interested could work with Traci Braun, our current concessions manager, for a few of our remaining football games this season. Game concessions are one of our 4 largest revenue generating accounts for the Tempo Club and its success is vitally important. Please contact Michele Stokes (Ways and Means Chair) or Brian James (Tempo Club President) if you have further questions or you want to communicate your interest. Contact information can be found on the Tempo Club website

CALENDAR DAY APPRECIATION
 
 Thank You Fairfield!! This past Saturday, students in the Music Programs at Fairfield City Schools grades 7-12 went door to door delivering the 2014/2015 Fine Arts Calendar. As one of our largest fundraisers of the year, we want to thank the citizens of Fairfield and Fairfield Township for making the day a fantastic success. If you were not home at the time of delivery, you can still donate by either using a provided envelope with the pre-printed Tempo address or you can follow the short instructions inside the front cover of the calendar. If you did not receive a calendar and would like one, we will be distributing quantities to each of the schools in the district. Thanks again for your support and we look forward to seeing you at the upcoming concerts detailed inside the calendar.
Brian James – Tempo Club President.
