FORT MADISON – The Fort Madison Music’s Department’s annual Taco Supper and Trivia night is set for Saturday.
The Taco Supper is a fundraiser for the program with great food, hosted at FMHS from 5 p.m.-7 p.m. The night has been moved back to the high school due to the popularity of the event. The event had been being held at the Union Presbyterian Church for the last few years, but the public attendance of the event has outgrown the seating availability of the site.
Each student in the music department is asked to provide a specified items for the event (i.e. 1 lbs of cheese, lettuce, peas, etc.). The students in the program donate food items for the night and public donations of a dessert are welcome. Desserts can be dropped off at the high school any time on Friday or Saturday before the event. Each of the three high school jazz bands will be performing for this event; all jazz students are to report to the high school band room at 4:30 pm for warm up and prep.
Spring Trivia Night – The trivia night typically follows the taco supper and is a fun event for all families, groups of friends. The public is invited and encouraged to attend. This event starts at 7 p.m. in the high school MPR and will feature ten sets of questions ranging in categories from i.e. music, to geography, tv shows, etc. Come early to the taco supper and eat. There will be bottomless cups of soda/water available for $3.00 (separate from the Taco Supper).
Bring some mad money with you. We will be playing head and tails, have a 50/50 drawing and mulligans will be available. Music students have been encouraged to sell ticket packets ahead of the trivia night to generate funds for their personal trip accounts. Funds generated will be applied to the 2018 Chicago St. Patrick’s Day Parade performance. 100% of the ticket sales will go to the student’s trip account, if the student sells the tickets. Tickets are $10 each for the trivia night. The Taco supper is separate.
