The LHSMBB is a volunteer organization!  Volunteers are needed to chair events throughout the season.  Please contact  Nancy Cassella at ncassella1@verizon.net  if you would like to step up to chair, co-chair or shadow an event.

 

 

Current needs:

If you're interested we also need people to learn the ropes by shadowing this year for coordinating next year.  Examples of these are...

 

Yankee Candle

Pre-sale ticket sales

Spirit Wear

 

Please consider helping our kids in this way.  Please contact Nancy Cassella at  ncassella1@verizon.net to find out more about any of these opportunities.

   

 

 

To All Marching Band Members:
We are ready to kick off this year's 2016  Home Show Ad Campaign!  This is one of our biggest fundraisers.

 

The LHS Marching Band Boosters would like to give all members the opportunity to sell the same ads that they sold last year.  In order to do this we are asking that you email or call Kristie Roeder at tkroeder94@gmail.com, with your request no later than June 19th.   These leads will be set aside in an envelope with your name on them to pick up on "Off-The-Line-Night" Thursday, June 23rd.   Any lead cards that are not picked up that night will be eligible for signing out to other members. 

 

PLEASE NOTE:

You may check out up to five (5) business lead index cards with names of businesses that have advertised in the past. Or you may give us a list of businesses that you would like to contact.  (Please do not contact them before you give us the list.  This ensures that businesses will only be contacted once by our organization.)  Once you have closed out the lead you may get additional lead index cards from Kristie Roeder. 

 

This is a great way to get a head start on your student account....Happy Selling

 

 

DON’T FORGET!!!  You can also add to your student account by bringing your returnable bottles to MSK Bottles& Cans on Route 57.  

Let them know that you wish your deposit refund to be applied against your student's account or you can have the monies applied to the general fund!

When bringing your bottles to MSK, please make sure you record the member's name legibly.  We want to make sure all accounts are credited properly.

 

Best of Luck to our graduating seniors 

 

All Seniors - Please note that you will be kept on the current list of e-mail recipients until graduation in June and therefore will continue to receive periodic e-mails concerning the Boosters.  At that point your information, along with those of your parents/guardians, will be transferred to our Alumni lists.

Those parents who still have members participating will remain on the standard lists.

 

Thank you to Band Photographer Cindy Barrus, Band camp photos and photos throughout the season are posted on the Facebook site.
