A message from CYMBAL President, Denise Menzies: Thank you to the many families who submitted their membership forms and payments for CYMBAL membership this school year. Your donations help fund the outstanding music programs in our Incline public schools and pay for instrument purchases & repairs, music, textbooks and software, festival entries and travel costs, excursions and guest performers. We look forward to seeing you at our Incline Schools' Music Events in your "Reserved" seating areas. As a member you will also be receiving our email newsletter. We are proud to announce the Moore family as the winner of the membership drive iPad! A big THANK YOU to our iPad sponsor, Dave & Michelle Koch of Alpine Interiors.

Due to the success of this membership drive, we are holding a second raffle. All memberships received between now and December 15th will be entered into a raffle to win SONY Stereo Over-the-Ear Headphones w/hands free phone feature.

I hope you will consider joining Cymbal and returning the attached membership form to your School's music teacher. Any IES or IMS student who returns their CYMBAL Information Form will receive a "Musical Note Pencil" regardless of whether you choose to become a dues-paying member or a CYMBAL supporter.

Please contact me with any questions about Cymbal or for information on how you can support the music programs in our Incline schools. Thank you for helping "keep the music playing!" Denise Menzies This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
