Volunteer Opportunity:
Conversation has gone on throughout the spring for the students to give back to the community.

The one volunteering opportunity that seems to be perfect is World Vision: http://www.worldvision.org/

 

They have a clothing distribution center in Sewickley:  210 Overlook Dr., Sewickley, PA 15143; Phone:(412) 749-1800

 

The volunteer work is very straight forward, not strenuous, safe and is usually great fun.  It involves sorting massive boxes of donated clothing by size, gender and style into smaller boxes, which are then sealed and wrapped onto pallets for shipment around the world to areas of need.  This location is designed to host large groups.  Dozens of Boy Scout, Girl Scout, youth groups and other organizations have donated time at this facility.  They work 7 days a week….but, tend to split up “shifts” into 3 hour morning or afternoon sessions so that no one group is overburdened.

 

The Mars Band is signed up to help on Friday, July 8, from 9am-noon.  If your son/daughter would like to participate please email me by Tuesday, July 5; indicate the names participating in your email.  Both band members and parents are welcomed to help.  Attached you will find the directions to the site.

 


4th of July Parade:
Report time is 4:15pm at Marburger Field
Parade begins at 5pm and should finish at 5:30pm at the Post Office
Performers should wear red, white and blue "patroitic colors" and will play God Bless America
If students need any equipment from the building please email Mr. Rodgers by Wednesday, June 29.

DCI Event:
After the recent drum corps show at Gateway, we have noticed some more possible interest for the upcoming show in August. While tickets have already been purchased, we would like to get more people to attend the August 3rd show at Baldwin HS and purchase more tickets. This is a great opportunity for both students and parents who haven't seen anything like DCI Drum Corps before.

If we can get responses no later than the 4th of July we can order more.  We want to make sure we have space for as many as possible, while ensuring we receive the discounted rate of $21. Please email Dave Soose at percussion@marsband.com or Thom Brazel at treasurer@marsband.com
