Saturday, March 15 is the Second Annual Luck ‘O the Irish Casino Night Extravaganza at Bridgewater Convention Center, Sawmill Road, at 6:00 PM!
Is Blackjack your game? How about Roulette? Perhaps “gambling” at a silent auction is more your “game”? If so, you won’t want to miss Casino Night!
Your admission gives you 500 tokens, heavy appetizers and desserts, and a drink ticket, plus the opportunity to bid on a wide variety of silent auction items. Tickets are $27, and are available at https://www.showtix4u.com/boxoffice.php?submit=Search+for+Events&begin=1542968¤t_client=0420031312161756&ts=1389979751
All proceeds from this major Spring Fundraiser go to support Music Programs at Dublin Schools. Hope to see you there!
At the beginning of February, I asked for five (5) parents to step forward to help with the Dublin Music Boosters (DMB) Concessions Team at Dublin Scioto High School. We have great music parents, all who share one thing in common – We are all part of the DMB. You likely noticed that the spring concessions signup went out last weekend, which means it is critical we begin to put this team together to support volunteers who will be signing up. I have high hopes that folks with flexible schedules who can put in a few hours a week will step up to leadership. While having freshman or sophomore parents step up is ideal, junior parents may also.
The Concessions Team Leadership roles will support Dublin Scioto High School concessions for the spring 2014 season and the 2014-2015 fall/spring seasons. Training would occur during this spring season as provided by our current outgoing Concessions leadership. Thank you to Gary and Nancy Cameron and James and Jackie Williams for their amazing support the past couple years.
As a busy parent raising three boys, working, juggling family life and volunteering for other organizations in the community, I know how tough it can be to step up. Please take a moment to reflect and give me a shout by the end of the week (Feb 21) if you feel called to help. The school relies on the DMB to continue delivering high quality concessions at its Friday night home football games and more.
Thank you very much for your consideration (see previous message, posted in the tab above, for more information).
Silent Auction. If you have silent auction items or can purchase gift cards for our door prizes/silent auction, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Reality Show Stars Named TODAY Show’s Sound of Music Family
The Willis Clan is a family of amazing musicians, dancers, athletes, writers, and artists. Living in middle Tennessee, they merge their Irish roots with other music and dance genres to create a unique blend of the old and new, and they are coming to Dublin, Ohio. The Willis family will be doing a student workshop and concert Jan. 11, 2014 at Dublin Scioto High School’s Marina Davis Performing Arts Center.
The Willis’ are the stars of their own reality show, The Willis Clan, seen on the Great American Country Network, and were recently featured on NBC’s The TODAY Show as “America’s new Sound of Music Family.” Most recently they performed at Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry with Carrie Underwood and Vince Gill.
The Willis Clan will be spending some time with members of Irish Fiddle Fetish, a volunteer group of Scioto high school students, sharing performance tips and techniques, as well as encouraging students to continue in the arts.
“Our students are really excited to meet the Willis’,” said Jim Gray, a music teacher at Scioto High School. “Not only are they getting the opportunity to interact with great performers, but they’ll have the chance to be with performers from their own age group. They will have much more in common with them and that adds a great deal of authenticity to their interaction.”
Dublin-based Prime Tours is sponsoring the family’s visit. Prime is also managing a fan tour to Ireland with The Willis Clan in April. “I saw the family perform at the Dublin Irish Festival and was amazed at the world-class quality of their show,” said David Matthews, president of Prime Tours. “The standing ovations they got showed that everyone appreciated their talents. It’s fascinating that all 12 children are involved and have so much talent. Best of all, they are warm, wonderful, fun-loving people. We are happy to sponsor their appearance in Dublin. As a special bonus for our hometown, anyone attending the concert is eligible for a $100 discount off The Willis Clan’s Ireland Tour.”
The Willis Clan concert is January 11, 2014 at 8:00 p.m. in the Dublin Scioto High School Marina Davis Performing Arts Center.

We look forward to saluting the 2013 Marching Band Season at the annual Band Banquet at Scioto High School, 6:30 PM, Friday, November 22.
The program will feature photos and videos of the fun, exhausting, and ultimately very satisfying season, keynote speakers, and much reminiscing. The evening will conclude with the poignant passing of the flame from the Seniors to the Junior class members. You won’t want to miss it!
On Friday, November 8, the Dublin Scioto Marching Band took the field for their final performance of The Parting Glass show at the OMEA State Finals, at Brunswick High School, Brunswick, OH.
The band took the field and gave a memorable performance. Their countless hours of practice paid off. A crowd of Dublin Scioto’s faithful fans watched in rapt attention, erupting in enthusiastic, mittened applause at the emotional end of the show.
At long last, the judges announced their assessment: SUPERIOR!
We knew it all along.
Congratulations on a great season. We look forward to celebrating together at the Band Banquet!
