 If your child plans to join or is currently a member of the Jr. & Sr. HS chorus, 
band please help us support them and become a member of the Hopedale Friends of Music.  We help support Mr. Chatham and Mr. Beaudry with all 
concerts, band uniform maintenance, music events & festivals, town parades
 and group trips!  We also offer 2 scholarships to our graduating seniors .

The best part about our Yankee Candle fundraisers is that every student in the music department that fundraises has their own "account" that is maintained by the Friends of Music. 
We get 40% profit from Yankee Candle and 2/3 of that goes into the student account that can be used towards future trips to reduce the overall cost. 
Funds from the accounts will be automatically applied to the final payment balance and /or  parents will get a refund check. 

 All other fundraisers from HFOM (concert raffles, car decals, "H" ornament, java joe coffee ) goes into the HFOM general fund to help reduce the cost of music trips, equipment and supplies for the music department. 

Concert Attire Swap Shop

For parents who have children who grow very fast and do not want to throw away the clothing.
This is aimed at concert attire that may only be used a couple of times a year for music students.
 Please add any contact information that you feel comfortable with.
 This will also be shared with parents/guardians of elementary music students. 
Some of us may benefit from the use of the concert clothing - which can cost as much as $50-70 just for one year of performances!  Please contact Heather Dupuis for details -
