Other Important Info

We still need more volunteers to assist with committees & hopefully head them up for the 2017-18 marching season. (Thank you to those that have already signed up!) If you are able to help and would like to learn about the opportunities & shadow the current committee heads, please sign up on the Signup Genius. http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0a4fa4a92ca57-committee

Donations are needed to buy the concessions for our CBA fundraiser. By gathering monetary donations, we are able to stock the concession stand with items to sell during this all-day fundraiser. That means more profits that will go directly to the band! If you would like to donate (or have already indicated that you could), please send your check donation made payable to Nikki Sheeran to her home at 3469 W Alamo Pl, Littleton, CO 80123. If you have any questions, please email her at we5sheeran@comcast.net.

Sport Top Water Bottles are needed to keep our kids hydrated through the season. Please consider buying a case or two and dropping them off in the band room.

We could use 1 or 2 more EZ-up tents to shade the kids from the hot sun at the various upcoming competitions/events. We will eventually also need 1 or 2 larger tents that have sides that can be attached to use at our CBA Event in October. If you have a tent that we could use during the season or that you could donate to the band, please let Mr. Emmons or Marsha Prokuski know.

As always, thanks for supporting the Lion Pride Marching Band!!
