Cherrydale Farms Fundraiser

It's that time of year again!

Our fundraiser has started. Here a few things you need to know:

1. Payment must be taken with the order.

2. Cash, money orders, and checks (payable to Arp Band) are acceptable forms of payment.

3. Please print clearly on your order form and double check item numbers for accuracy.

4. I have extra packets as well as individual order forms.

5. Orders and payment are due Monday, Sept. 30th. Please turn in only the order forms and payment.

6. Place all forms of payment in a sealed envelope or ziploc baggie labeled with your name. This helps to keep it all together.

7. We should get our items back before Thanksgiving. I will send out a notice and post on my blog when those items arrive.


If you have any other questions about the fundraiser, please contact me by e-mail at christyr@arpisd.org or by phone at 859-2421.
