Concessions: The committee for concessions manages the concession stand to ensure that a profit is made (this is one of our bigger fundraisers.) The committee members divide up the following responsibilities: grocery ordering and shopping; ordering ice; concession stand setup; and grill operation. 10 to 12 volunteers are needed at each home game to run the concession stand (cashiers, food wrappers, order stockers, grill, setup and cleanup.)

Pit Crew: The chairperson of this committee needs volunteers to assist with the transport of pit equipment to the field and back to the band room after halftime at home games. At away games and competitions, assistance is needed loading and unloading the equipment trailer and transporting the equipment on and off the field. May also assist Color Guard with flags.

Chaperones: The chairperson of this committee coordinates bus chaperones and pit crew volunteers for away games and competitions. Some chaperone duties include riding the buses, escorting the band with the directors, carrying the medical bag, assisting Color Guard, and distributing and collecting plumes.

Uniforms: The chairperson assists with the fitting of uniforms during band camp in August. Some sewing and repairs may need to be done. Volunteers are needed to help with fittings, sewing, distribution and collection of plumes at home games.

Ways and Means: This committee is responsible for coordinating all fund raising activities, including Tag Day, 50/50 Raffle, Fruit Sale, Spirit Wear, and any other fund raising activity approved by the Board.

    • Tag Day - This is the largest fundraiser for the band. The chair of this committee organizes, along with the volunteer coordinator, the staffing of parent volunteers to drive students, in groups, to community neighborhoods to solicit donations in return for community service. Volunteers are needed to help direct the students to their neighborhoods, hand out materials on Tag Day and to drive students on a Saturday in September to community neighborhoods.

    • Spiritwear - The chairperson of this committee coordinates the procurement and sale of band apparel at band events. Volunteers assist the chairperson as directed (staffing football games to sell items).

    • 50/50 Raffle - The chairperson of this committee recruits volunteers to sell raffle tickets at home football games. Band portion of the proceeds (50%) are used to fund scholarships, which are awarded in the spring of the senior year.
