FALCONLAND II: It went so well, we're going to do it again..... LD is hosting a smaller version of our indoor band competition on Saturday, March 25, 2017. Like the last show,
we will need many volunteers to make it run smoothly and successfully. The same positions
are open for volunteering. Our LDHS percussion group will be the last group to perform at 4:09 PM (the Grand Finale), so we should be cleaned up and out by 6:00! If you can give us a few hours of your time on March 25, please contact Stacey Stockton at .
FALCONLAND II TROPHY SPONSORS - We are looking for local businesses and families to be TROPHY SPONSORS for our second indoor competition. Sponsors will have their names printed in the program and announced during the awards presentation. A trophy sponsorship costs $30, and $10 of that will go to the band student, so this is a great fundraising opportunity. Sponsor order forms and payments must be received by March 20, 2017. Please make checks or money orders payable to LDBB. Contact Susan Seacord at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
UNIFORM INSPECTIONS - We are in the process of inspecting and repairing all marching band uniforms. If you can sew hems or snaps, there are a number of uniforms that need work. They are tagged and hanging in the uniform closet. Please contact Cherie Fake for more info at email@example.com. Our next inspection is scheduled for Saturday, 4/8/17, at 9:00 AM at the HS and all are welcome to join us! Those students who have not returned their uniforms (cleaned), should do so immediately.
CHAPERONES: If you are interested in chaperoning the band for football games, Drumline performances or other band trips, you must be a district-approved volunteer! The LD School District requires all volunteers who have direct contact with students to obtain the following clearances: Child Abuse History, State Criminal History, a fingerprint-based Federal Criminal History (only if you have lived outside PA in the past 10 years), and a TB test. Chaperones will be required to wear their district-provided badges. Go to the LDSD website for more info: http://www.ldsd.org/domain/753.
BAND CAMP FOR THE 2017-2018 SEASON: For those organized
people who are already planning their summer vacations, here are the dates for Band Camp this summer..... Band Camp - 7/31/17 thru 8/4/17 Post Camp 8/7/17 thru 8/10/17.
PAYMENTS: Please make payments to the Band Boosters in the form of CHECKS or MONEY ORDERS so that they are traceable and more secure. The Boosters cannot accept cash payments. Payments should be placed in an envelope marked with the student’s name and what it is for. Make checks payable to LDBB and include the order form if necessary. Place the envelopes in the locked filing cabinet in the HS Band Room. Contact Treasurer Susan Seacord at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or to check your Student Account Balance.
LDBB EXECUTIVE BOARD: There will be three positions on the LDBB
Executive Board open for the 2017-2019 term: Band Manager, Treasurer and Secretary. If you are interested in any of these
positions, please see a member of the E-board. We recommend that
you spend some time shadowing the current positions this year to familiarize
yourself with the role. The Treasurer candidate must have some knowledge
of Quicken, Excel and banking.
BOOSTER MEETINGS: Booster meetings are usually held the second Tuesday of each month, though they may switch to Mondays or Wednesdays in winter to line up with Indoor Drumline practices. The next meeting is Tueday, April 11, at 7:00 PM. Meetings are open to the public, and all band parents are encouraged to attend. Minutes from previous meetings are posted on this website.
