Giving the Gift of Music

posted Nov 29, 2017, 6:30 AM by Web Master

In case you have a band student that is hard to buy for, this year Hudsonville Band Boosters will be trying something new and will be selling Giving the Gift of Music Gift Certificates.  You (or your loved ones) will have the opportunity at the Christmas concerts to buy your student(s) a Hudsonville Band, Giving the Gift of Music Gift Certificate and the money will be put in the student's band account where they will be able to use it towards anything band related. (Marching Band, Winter Drum Line, Winter Color Guard, Band Trips, Band shirts/jackets.. etc) 

Hudsonville Band Online Store

Now that Marching Band season has come to an end, do you know what that means?  Yes, Winter Color Guard & Winter Drumline but it also means that Christmas will be here before you know it!

I don't know about you, but I LOVE Christmas.  The one thing I dread is the shopping and 
trying to find something the kids will use and not just put in a corner.

This year, Hudsonville Boosters came through by starting an online store where you can buy various Hudsonville Band and Hudsonville Eagle merchandise from now through November 27th with delivery being the week before Christmas in the Freshman Campus Band Room.  

If you have a Hudsonville band fan or a Hudsonville eagle's fan in your house, please take the time to look through the store to see if there is anything your special someone might want! There are a ton of great items - high quality - for adults and teens and younger kids at incredible prices!

The bonus and why I'm sharing is a percentage of all the proceeds helps support ALL the 

Hudsonville bands. (Baldwin, Riley and  Hudsonville High School).

It's just another great way to support our students, show our Hudsonville pride and finish our shopping without the crowds!

Here is the link to the store:   Hudsonville Band Online Store

The picture on the left is just some of the items we have for sale.  Most items (if not all) you can choose between the Hudsonville Band logo or the Hudsonville Eagle mascot. 

Order now before it's to late!

New Fundraiser ~ Restaurant of the Month

posted Oct 28, 2017, 3:06 AM by Web Master

October 28, 2017

We know how life can be busy so we decided to start participating in a fundraiser where you can take a night off from cooking and enjoy a night out with your family or friends all while supporting Hudsonville Bands!  

Once a month Hudsonville Bands will be partnering up with one of our local West Michigan restaurants to offer an easy and delicious way to support Hudsonville Bands.

It's really easy to do!

All you need to do is show up at the restaurant on the given time/date and either mention it's for Hudsonville Bands or hand them/show them the flyer on your smartphone. (some restaurants you need to show them a flyer) and they will donate a certain percentage of your purchase that night to Hudsonville Bands!

Please watch the Restaurant of the Month page for more details about the restaurants and the restaurant nights!

The Hudsonville Bands would, for one final time, like to wish Mr. Good well wishes on his retirement. In his 27 years at Hudsonville Schools, he not only taught students how to perform music on instruments but also how to perform well in life.

The impact he has made on students will be engrained in their lives for years to come, and even his perfected art of sarcasm will be missed :) There are not enough words to express how deeply he will be missed by students, parents and staff members.

From the hearts of your students and friends Mr. Good, we wish you nothing but the best!
