Donations Needed! Can you help? 

  • Snacks and Drinks for the fall season!

    • We give the kids snacks during band camp, during half time and at competitions.  Individually wrapped snack crackers, chips, granola bars, cookies, are the best (they don’t melt…).

    • Drinks? Water is best!

  • Uniform room donations

    • Hair ties, hair spray, thin head bands, black socks, bobby pins, makeup remover cloths, nail polish remover.  All these items are used to help us get ready for competitions

  • 12” balloons – These are used during marching practice for breathing exercises

Parents, we need help setting up our props!

  • The current plans for props are 2 large (30' x 30') vinyl mats, one white, one black.  These will be spread out prior to the band taking the field and will require quite a few people to get it done!  

  • Props may or may not be displayed at every football game, but they will DEFINITELY be displayed at competitions -- this is where we will need the most help!
