Showcase of Bands: Volunteers Needed

It is that time of the year again, Showcase of Bands is just a little over a month away (September 20th, 2014). We are in need of volunteers for the following areas:

  • Ticket Booth
  • 50/50 Raffle
  • Concessions
  • Greeters
  • Decorations
  • Band Meal
  • Band Dessert- donate cookies

Please contact us with any questions and let us know what area you are interested in volunteering for.

We do like to have the non-senior parents to fill these spots, so our Senior parents are able to sit down and enjoy the complete show…(but, if you are a Senior parent and are wishing to volunteer, we will not turn away help… lol) AND we encourage the 5th-8th grade parents to come join in on the volunteering. This is the first event of the school year, with many more to come. We hope that you come out and get involved.

Thank you for all the support and time you have dedicated to our awesome band program and to our students…it is appreciated.

Best Regards,

Kerri Murphy Co-Chair

Ecology Volunteers needed for Marathon Golf Classic

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 and they pay us handsomely. This is a big event and it takes a lot of hands to run it – 180 volunteer opportunities.

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.

Bleed for the Band

Please mark the calendar for Wed. July 31st and Bleed for the Band. This is an event set up with the Red Cross to meet summer blood needs and have a donation be made back to the band programs in return, based on the number of pints donated.

We have a date of Wednesday July 31st from 2-8 PM for a Blood Drive at the High School Band Room with the Red Cross. We need a few people interested in chairing this event. The Red Cross wants to get a meeting organized in the near future. This would be a one time event and easy to help with!

Please contact Scott Donnelly if you could spare a few hours this summer to help chair this to help not only the bands but the community’s high need for blood this season.

If you are unable to help chair this event, WE STILL NEED YOUR BLOOD!

More information will be emailed out later to get people scheduled to donate during those hours.

Thanks again for helping our bands and community!
