Welcome! to the official website of the DeWitt Band Boosters
Apple Pie Making Day - November 10, 2017
Dear Band Students and Parents,
Get ready for the BIGGEST fundraiser of the year! The DeWitt Band Booster Apple Pie Sale!!
This is one of the most popular fundraisers in the area and we have earned a great reputation
for making one of the best apple pies around. Teachers, neighbors, relatives and co-workers
in the community look forward to this sale every year. How popular is it? Last year over
3200 apple pies were sold. Our goal this year is to keep this fundraiser growing! In order to
do this, every student needs to sell only 25 pies! But please, do not stop at 25. Sell as many
as you can! It is a fun experience to watch it all come together and the band students have a
lot of fun selling and making the pies.
Once again, we are offering customers the option to purchase pies to be donated to area food
banks. There is a separate order form attached for this. Donation orders must be keep
separate from your regular orders. Donations will be picked up by the food bank. Please
ask each customer if they would like to purchase a pie for donation. This is a great option
for those people who want to help the band but don’t want to buy a pie for themselves!
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING IMPORTANT INFORMATION
Students will earn a “commission” of $2.00 for each pie they sell once they hit 20 pies. In
order to earn a commission, students need to sell 20 or more pies. The money they earn will
go into their individual band accounts and can be used to offset any future band expenses
they may incur, such as band camp fees or BAND TRIP EXPENSES. If you have questions
regarding funds, contact the band treasurer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students are also required to work one of the shifts making pies on Friday, November 10
th or work a shift at the craft show on Saturday, November 11th. If a student is unable to work a
shift, a parent is required to cover their shift. More information regarding sign-up will be
available on Charms.
Pie orders should be taken on the attached order forms. ALL ORDERS MUST BE PREPAID!
Please fill out the pie forms NEATLY and COMPLETELY. This means complete name (no writing
grandma, Aunt Sue, etc.). We would like to send out an email reminder about pie pick up this
year. Please get an email address for all customers and make sure to notate appropriately if
pies will be picked up by the customer or if the student will be picking up pies to deliver to
customers. Extra pie order forms will be available in the band room or on Charms if you need
Please be sure to give each customer a Thank You / Reminder Card with your name on it so
they know who they ordered from and when and where to pick up their pies. PLEASE BE SURE
TO LET YOUR CUSTOMERS KNOW THAT PIE PICK UP IS BACK AT THE HERBISON WOODS THIS YEAR.
Order forms (filled out neatly and filled out completely) along with correct payments must be

More Info on Donating a Pie To DeWitt Food Banks!
This year we will be also taking orders for those who would like to donate apple pies to the Local DeWitt Food Banks. This promotion will not only benefit the band, we'll be selling and making more pies, but will benefit our local Food Bank with fresh apple pies for the upcoming holiday season. Buy apple pies for yourself and buy apple pies to donate to the Food Bank. The Food Bank will be picking up all the pies donated to them.
