We thought you might like a monthly update on FOJ so we’re planning on writing a small newsletter on a monthly basis. You’ll still be receiving Jive Talkin‘ each quarter.

It’s been a strange and frustrating yer since our Mardi Gras in March, 2020, and we regret not being able to offer our usual fun programs and events due to the corona virus. Our scholarship program for high school bands was cut way too short, after only 3 bands were awarded scholarships. Fourth-grade recorder programs were also discontinued. And we cancelled an event scheduled for May 2020.

Grants, donations and memberships are down. We greatly appreciate your support as we tentatively plan some fun events for the coming year:  a BBQ, Nat King Cole tribute, college scholarship presentations, thank you parties for our members and sponsors and, hopefully, Mardi Gras 2021!

Meanwhile, we can’t do it without you. If you haven’t already, please renew your membership or join as a new member. If you can’t join us, please consider sending a donation to help us keep music in the schools. Thank you!
