Volunteers Needed

Attached is a document that explains about a lot of our volunteer/fundraising opportunities so you can understand what we do and when and hopefully ease some of the overwhelmed/intimidated feelings from the requests for help.   By volunteering, you get to support our awesome band students so they can do the best they can at what they do, as they work hard and represent their families, school, and community, and you get to meet new friends and have fun along the way!  If we all work together, it’s not so bad for anyone! Even if your child isn’t marching, our booster club fundraising events support the whole band program all year long.

Also attached is the committee chair roster for 2018 - 2019.  Lines in yellow designate graduating parents who will need to be replaced.
