  • All school rules and policies are in effect while on the trip.
  • Students are responsible for work missed. Communicate with your teachers before you leave.

Volunteering for Chicken BBQ

It’s almost Chicken BBQ time again!

The date for this year’s event is May 12, 2012 from 2:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. All bands, grades 5 – 12, will perform for this community event. AWBB will be offering both dine-in and carryout meals.

The Chicken BBQ is a major fundraiser for the band programs. Many volunteers doing a variety of jobs are needed to make this event a success.

Volunteers will be needed for set up on the 11th. On the 12th, volunteers will be needed to cut and package desserts, help run the bake sale, package and serve dinners, sell 50/50 tickets and clean up. Various shift times are available.

If you are able to donate a few hours of your time to help make our annual BBQ a continued success, please fill out the Chicken BBQ Volunteer form. Karen Lemle is coordinating the Chicken BBQ volunteers: she will contact you to finalize the details.

Thank you for all you do for our excellent band programs!
