Maple Families,
As a reminder, this Saturday’s Oireachtas schedule is as follows:

8:00 am – 12:00 pm - Solos
12:00 pm– 12:30 pm - Lunch
12:30 pm – 3:30 pm - Teams

In light of the long day and short amount of time between solos and teams, the Maple Booster Club (MBC) is offering breakfast and lunch for dancers and parents for a nominal fee.   This is also an MBC fundraiser to off-set some of the costs associated with the Oireachtas.  (For example, renting a practice room for all Maple dancers while in Houston; SRO T-shirts, and classes with Olivia).   

Breakfast items will include bagels with assorted toppings, granola bars and fruit cups.
Lunch items will include a “make your own sandwich bar” with chips, assorted drinks and cake pops. 

Cost for breakfast = $5.00  Breakfast will be available starting at 7:40 at the Hall.  The Maples would like to start class promptly at 8am
Cost for lunch = $7.00 
***Or $10 for both breakfast and lunch!!  (Additional donations gladly accepted!)
If you are only coming for teams, please join the lunch to support the SRO fundraiser and do some team bonding before practice! 

Thank you for your support to the MBC and we welcome your feedback and thoughts on future fundraisers so we can support the dance families in the coming year.
For our planning purposes, PLEASE RSVP to with how many will be buying breakfast, lunch or both.
