Superintendent's Notes

Maynard Music Association’s Casino Night is Coming This Saturday!

This is a fun event that I enjoyed very much last year.  This year I will be a guest black jack dealer again.  I will look forward to seeing everyone there. 

Vouchers are now available for the annual Casino Night sponsored by the Maynard Music Association. Casino Night will take place on Saturday, Nov. 2, at the Maynard Elks from 6:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. Vouchers are $40 apiece, $35 for two or more, and $45 the day of the event. The price includes $3000 in gaming chips for the night! Last year’s event was sold out! 

This year’s event will feature a live auction for a 7 night two-bedroom resort stay in Orlando, FL valued at $2100! The Maynard Music Association supports band and chorus programs at Maynard High School and Fowler Middle School. The proceeds from this fundraiser contribute to scholarships, instrument purchases and repair, choral music and offset other miscellaneous music-related expenses. Vouchers can be purchased through Colleen Andrade in the Fowler main office or by contacting Bonnie Wilson at 978-897-7045.
