Fall 2021 Meeting Minutes
Dear Viking Band Families,

Volunteers Needed for 2021-2022
Want to Join a Great Team and Make a Positive Difference and Have Fun?
We are looking for new volunteers to join our Redwood Viking Band Booster Club for the 2021-2022 school year. We know that the past year has been a very unusual year, but with the current increase in vaccination rates, there is the possibility of having a regular 2021-2022 school year.
Being a part of the booster club is an excellent way to make friends and memories, all while supporting a great cause. You could help with bake sales at concerts, selling pizza at a Lazertag fundraiser, squirting water into mouths of students at parades, uniform fittings, and many other fun activities. No experience necessary.
You can find a copy of the Booster Club Job Descriptions here. Please note that you are never alone when you take on a position - you will always have help.
We are especially in need of volunteers to help with uniform fittings after school on October 11-13! We will train you—it’s a great chance to hang out with the kids!
Finding a friend and taking on a position as a duo is also a great option, as many hands make light work.
Thank you very much for your help!
Redwood Viking Band, Inc.
Welcome Back Viking Band Families!
It’s the start of another school year and what an unusual school year it is, but an EXCITING year of music nonetheless!
Thank you for choosing to be part of this excellent band program. If this is your first year with us in band (both band member and family), you’re in for a great experience. The Redwood Middle School Viking Band is an accomplished, award-winning and top-notch group of student performers led by our band director, Mr. Adam Payne. He’s completing his 21st year of leading this program at Redwood Middle School and he continues to create a love of music and performance in his students.
Redwood Viking Band, Inc. (Booster Club) is the authorized 501(c)(3) Charitable Organization set up to fund and support the band program. Parents of the students enrolled in band are automatically members of this club. We call you “Pledge Partners” – because we’re all in this together and making it an excellent band experience for our children is what it’s all about! This organization is parent-led, meaning parents lead and serve on a board of directors to manage the band program. We need and welcome your involvement!
Thank you again for your support!
Julie Lewis and Leonie Choy, Co-Presidents
Thank you City of Thousand Oaks!

If you want to see the Symphonic Band (Redwoods top Band) perform this week they will be playing in the TOHS Festival on Thursday in the TOHS Performing Arts Center at 6:15.
The video that follows is the official parade video. It is shot from the middle of the parade route. The Redwood Viking Band and Color Guard are about 1:11:26 into the video. Feel free to watch the entire video to compare how we did to the other bands in the parade. Thank you to Jill Shields for finding and sending me the link to the video.
Thank you to all the teachers, administrators, school staff, band staff, and band parents that make this amazing performance possible. Without all of you this would not be possible. It definitely takes a village. This is an amazing place to work!!
