Retirement BBQ and Potluck for Mr. Hickey

After over 30 years (24 years with AB) of teaching, conducting, performing, leading, and encouraging our talented AB Musicians, Mr. Mark Hickey will be retiring June 30, 2018.

ABFOM will be hosting a Student, Alumni, Friends, and Parent BBQ and Potluck on Monday, May 28th from ~12:30 to 4 PM (after the Memorial Day parade).  This event will be held rain or shine at The Christensen's home in Acton.  If possible, please consider carpooling.  

Please RSVP the number of persons who will be attending.  

We will be providing burgers (beef and veggie), hot dogs, condiments, cake, lemonade, and water.  Please sign up to bring a dish to share.  We are requesting appetizers, main dishes, sides, desserts, and beverages. Please sign up below.  In the food sign up section, for the Quantity (Qty) field, please enter 1.  You can describe the dish in the comments section.  If a sign-up is full, don't be shy, just bring along a dish!  Adults may BYOB.

For all, please bring your own chair (BYOC).   

Children of Sanchez – Call for Players!  - We’re hoping to have a critical mass of alumni and current students with instruments to play Children of Sanchez for Mr. Hickey one last time.  So, alums, dust off your trumpet and put a fresh reed in your sax and come ready to play!

Looking forward to giving Mr. H a great send-off!
