Volunteer Needed for Uniform Fitting

The AWBB Uniform Fitting is coming up on Tuesday, August 11 and Wednesday, August 12 from 11 am – 5 pm each day.

This is a week later than we have traditionally done it.  We think this will be better for the students, since they won’t be practicing those mornings.

We are looking for volunteers to help with this.  We are in need of both parent AND student volunteers.  Each person can help out either the whole time, or for just part of the time.

It is interesting and rewarding to be a part of outfitting our large group of Generals!  It’s a great opportunity for parents to see how everything comes together.  Anyone who would like to volunteer please contact Renee McNutt, Uniform Chairman.

Golf Ecology Volunteering

Anthony Wayne Band Students and Band Boosters,

It’s back … our annual opportunity to work at the Marathon Classic LPGA event at Highland Meadows in Sylvania.   The tournament organizers have again selected the Anthony Wayne Band Boosters to keep the course clean during the tournament. This is a big event and it takes a lot of hands to run it – 180 volunteer opportunities and contributes 10% of our Band Booster income. Our duties include setting up the trash containers on Sunday before the event, picking up and disposing of trash and glass bottles for recycling during the event, and a final pickup of the parking lots Monday after the tournament ends. It’s a great event to work as a family, it’s also a great chance for the band students to participate directly in fundraising for the band. Fundraising opportunities like this help provide instruments for the band, reduce student prices for the big trips, participate in contests and honor bands, look sharp as Marching Generals, and so much more.

Below is a listing of the tournament activities, shifts, and duties for that shift. Sunday is a quick event to setup the containers. Monday and Wednesday are light duty and offer the best opportunities to watch golfers and get autographs. Tournament play begins on Thursday so autographs are not so easily obtained since the golfers are focused on their jobs. Saturday and Sunday bring the public crowds and we need most help on those days. As a volunteer, you’ll get a T-shirt, parking pass, and hat or visor. The organizers request that we wear khaki pants/shorts/skirts and the volunteer T-shirt while on duty. A volunteer meeting will be held prior to the event to discuss details and distribute T-shirts and credentials.
