Volunteer Opportunities this Week:
Please click here to sign-up to volunteer for Friday Night’s Game. Please consider helping at least one game. It takes a village to pull off a game and we would love to meet each and every one of you!
We created a sponsorship item that allows people to purchase concessions for a section of their choice at the next home game. If anyone would like to sponsor a section, please click here. This will be available throughout the football season.
PREORDER by Monday, August 30. All students, click here, to let us know what concessions you would like. You will pay for the items Friday from 5:30-6:00. It is imperative that you complete this form if you would like any of these items even if your section has a sponsorship. Candy will be available for purchase without a pre-order during the 3rd quarter.
Show Shirt Hoodies & Sweatshirts
We had a request for a hoodie with our show shirt design. It will be available for pre-order only. This will end next Friday, September 3, 2021. Click here to order and pay at the bandroom. Complete the order form, put your payment in an envelope labeled with your name and what you ordered and put it in the band booster box beside Ms. Dothard’s desk.
Sponsorships – Forms are PAST due!
All students were asked to turn in sponsorship paperwork by August 20th. If you haven’t turned them in, please do so now. If you need more sponsorship forms or more time, please email Jennifer Carden at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you decide not to participate in our sponsorship drive, please send back in your form so that we can redistribute your list to a student who would like to ask your businesses to sponsor them.
JSU Band Day
On September 18, 2021 we will take interested students to participate in the JSU Band Day at Jacksonville State University. Students will perform pre-game in a massed band with the Marching Southerners and High School students from across the Southeast. Additionally, we will get to attend the football game and see the Marching Southerners perform half-time. If you have never seen them perform, they are AMAZING!
Student Participation Cost: FREE, includes a t-shirt, a ticket to the game, and massed band participation • Chaperone cost: FREE – t-shirt not included though.
All participants will need money for lunch and dinner. We are still working out details for this part of the day. If you registered previously and already paid money for the event, that money will be refunded or can be applied to your band fees or trip account. Please let us know how you would like it applied.
