Exciting news! We have been short-listed as a finalist in the Leader Local Grants Program! We have applied for funding for a new Marching Bass Drum which will have ‘Moonee Valley Brass’ printed on it. This will replace the ‘Essendon City Band’ drum which we currently use. We will be keeping the old drum as it is an important part of our heritage, but it would be nice to have our current name on this important piece of equipment.
The final winner of the grant is decided by popular vote, so we need your help! We would love you to vote for us – please see below for details:
- Voting is open to all those who register on the website, who are 18 or older and live in Victoria – www.leaderlocalgrants.com.au
- Voting opens at 9am on Monday 2nd June and closes at 5pm on Friday 13th June, 2014.
- Each person who registers will be allocated ten votes per grant cycle to vote on any idea or ideas they support. You can allocate all your 10 votes to the one project
- The name of our project is Moonee Valley Brass – Marching to the Beat!
- There are strict rules regarding fraudulent voting, so please only register once.
- It can be difficult to find the band project. It helps if you search by local paper. Ours is the Moonee Valley Leader.
Please encourage all your friends and family to vote as well – this is a great opportunity for us!
