Pomona Marching Festival & Rehearsal/Restaurant Fundraiser

PLEASE HELP!!

The Pomona Marching Festival is this coming Saturday, October 1st and we still need many more helpers! As of today, we have only 8 volunteers for the performance but we need approximately 40! Volunteers are needed to help move equipment, instruments, backdrops/scrims  as well as loading/unloading the truck both at LHS and at the performance venue. Please help the band have a successful day by volunteering your time. They perform at noon and if they do well enough in the preliminary round, will get to perform again for the finals that evening. We will need help potentially at both performances. PLEASE SIGN UP on the following link: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0a4fa4a92ca57-20164

There are still a few opportunities to help provide food for the kids/volunteers on Saturday as well. Sign up here to help: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c094ca5ac2ea75-pomona

Rehearsal & Restaurant Fundraiser

The band will be rehearsing on Tuesday, Sept 27th from 6-9pm. This night will also be Parent's Night. Please plan on joining the band on the field at about 8:20 for a performance of the show afterwhich parents will get to learn/march a portion of the show themselves. It's a fun night so don't miss out!


That afternoon/evening is also our restaurant fundraiser at Chipotle from 4-8 pm! We hope it will be convenient for students to have an early dinner at Chipotle before rehearsal, as well as parents to stop in for dinner before heading over to their part of the rehearsal. Be sure to mention that you are there to support the LHS Marching Band! Here's a flier with all the info: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B_gt4A56URSLNlhJVVBQaUQ0cFE

Do you have photos of the band you'd like to share?
If so, Nancy Egelhoff has set up a Shutterfly site where we can download and share our photos! (Thanks Nancy!) There is an album set up for all events so far, and she will add new albums as the season progresses. Parents can add their own albums to the site--labeled with event and date please--or add photos to the albums already created (under the Pictures & Videos tab).

(This competition is judged on band size not school size.) Thanks to all the parents that helped with moving equipment, finishing backdrops, providing water, feeding the masses, and being there to support and cheer on the students! It wouldn't be possible without the parents and your help is very much appreciated by the band and staff.
