Hello May River Band Family,
Well…here we go again. 😦 First and foremost, be safe, as we keep our friends in the path of Michael in our thoughts and prayers.
It’s without saying that the weather will determine our plans over the next few days. With that said, the following plan is what we hope to do. Of course, this is all tentative as events will be confirmed on the BAND app, as well as here on the band website when a clearer picture comes in focus with the passing hours. If there is one relief with this storm, it is that is moving rapidly and should be clear of our area must faster than Florence.

We are just flabbergasted at how well our SNAP-RAISE! fundraising campaign is taking off. In the first week of the campaign, we have raised close to $9500!!!! There are 3 weeks left!!!! Over 74% of the band has participated, and has received at least one support donation of $10 or more! We have met the minimum participation to receive that maximum return!!! Thank you for your participation!
That is all I have for now. I will do my best to keep everyone informed in the coming days. I will be using three platforms – BAND app, the Band Blog on the band website and Remind text messaging. To sign up for my remind, text @mayriverhs to 81010.
BE SAFE, ALL!!!!!
Thank you for your continued support.
David G. Carbone
