  • Fundraising for New Band Uniforms– Hussing Mechanical is the $5,000 sponsor that will appear on the back of the show shirt. Personnel connections will attract sponsors. If you know a business owner, reach out and ask them to be a sponsor. The fundraising total is $40,000!Participation from band families is at 10%. Group together to Adopt-A-Uniform. Payment is not due until January 2018.
  • Invitational– Jobs are 50% filled. Still need volunteers especially in parking. Need a shadow for trophies and concessions. Students to help out where appropriate.
  • Student Representatives– Welcome Student Representatives! Their jobs are to: (1) relay information to band members; and (2) relay feedback to boosters from band members.
  • Potential Truck Rental– Need to rent a semi OR two, 26 foot box trucks for competitions. Estimated cost to rent semi for seven competitions: $1,768.90. Estimated cost to rent two, 26 foot box trucks: $1,928.50. We have two confirmed CDL drivers, one in reserve. Would need to find two drivers for box trucks if we go with that option. This expense will have to come out of band fees.

Jeni Roution has offered to host a BBQ and swimming to all band kids who participate in the car wash. Proceeds from this fundraiser will go towards the general band fund.
