Car Wash Fundraiser & Work Day This Saturday (7/9/16)

Car Wash graphic

The band boosters have planned a car wash fundraiser for this Saturday, July 9th, 2016 from 9am until 3pm. Band students will be working at two locations around Carrollton, Arby’s and Advanced Auto, washing vehicles for donations in an effort to raise funds for our New York City trip. This will be a direct benefit fundraiser, meaning the money raised will be divided and applied only to the trip accounts of those students/chaperones participating in the event. All students are encouraged to participate. Be sure to sign in and out of the event because funds will be divided up by hours worked.  Students have divided themselves up into teams and have been assigned a location to report for the day.  If they do not know where to go, they should contact their section leader.  It is going to be hot, so please dress accordingly and respectfully, use sunscreen, and drink plenty of water prior to and the day of the event.

We still need several parent volunteers/chaperones for this event, so please sign up here:

We will also be having a construction/work day at the band room this Saturday, July 9th, 2016 from 8am until 2pm to work on items needed for the upcoming year. We encourage volunteers skilled/interested in construction, fabrication, engineering, etc., as well as general volunteers willing to learn or lend a hand, to join us and help get a great start on this year’s projects. In the end… If you are willing to help, we can use you! And remember, Band Booster Membership is now open to all alumni and parents/guardians of alumni as well, so if you’re eager to rejoin this awesome organization, we’d love to have you.
