Thanks to Central Market for band contributions

It is with great appassionato that Jackson High School (JHS) Band Boosters applauds Central Market for their scores of contributions to our band program. For the past three musical seasons, Central Market has provided grandioso support for the full symphony of events, such as the Mill Creek Jazz Festival, Par-Tee for Band Golf Tournament and Music in the Market Dinners. In addition, Central Market provides a venue for live performances, which allows our students the rewarding opportunity to give back to the community.

We want to thank Jim Huffman and the Central Market staff for their tireless fanfare of effort and dedication to our kids. Funding is limited for conducting a sonata of 250-plus band students at JHS. As you know, the program is in constant need of music, ongoing maintenance of existing instruments, and money for purchasing new equipment for the vivace program.

Central Market has helped us harmonize our efforts to enhance the music education of our students, bring a sense of community to Mill Creek, and develop a music program at JHS that is an octave above.
