The month of June is just flying by, which brings us closer to the beginning of marching band activities for this new season. Our first official activities begins in just a few short days as we prepare for our performance in the Carrollton July 4th People’s Parade.
We will be holding parade practice Friday, July 1, from 3pm-6pm that all band members, including rising 9th graders, are required to attend. Practice begins promptly at 3pm – Remember that being “On-Time” means to be early. If you arrive at 3:00pm, you’re late! Also, we will be practicing outside, so dress appropriately and begin drinking lots of water to ensure proper hydration for both practice and the parade.
The parade takes place Monday, July 4. Loaders will report to the band room at 8:15am. Everyone else will report to the Community and Southern Bank (201 Maple St • Carrollton, GA 30117) at 9:00AM, please arrive early. The parade steps off at 10:00AM and we should be finished by 11:00AM. Please have your ride pick you up from the old K-Mart parking lot, at the end of the parade route. The equipment trailer will return to the band room immediately following the parade to off-load.
For those wishing to volunteer to help before, after, and during the parade, please make sure to sign-up here: https://www.charmsoffice.com/charms/volunteerR.asp?v=2982003
