Marching Band

Marching Band requires a tremendous level of support from parents. You can help by serving on a committee, chaperoning a trip or simply donating supplies or refreshments to help feed the Band and Color Guard.


Every fall parents are needed to help construct flags used by Color Guard during the field show, fit and hem Marching Band uniforms and move equipment for field shows.


Whatever your talent, your contribution helps our organization run more smoothly.

Check back for opportunities throughout the year.
