FALCONLAND ADS & TROPHY SPONSORS: LD’s
annual indoor band competition is set for Saturday, February 25, 2017. The Band Boosters will be printing PROGRAMS for
this event, and we are asking students to sell advertising space to local
businesses and organizations. Not only will this help support the show
and the Boosters, but it will allow students to raise some money. For
each ad space you sell, 30% of the cost of the ad will go directly into your
Student Band Account! We
are also looking for TROPHY sponsors, and again, students get 30% of any trophy
sponsorships they sell. Print
and Order Forms and start talking to local businesses and
organizations today! Some good prospects include: doctors and
dentist offices, garages, stores, restaurants, your employer, and anywhere you
do business locally. Program
Ads and Trophy Sponsorships must be submitted by February 1. Contact Susan Seacord with questions at (717)
566-0975 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
CHAPERONES: Chaperone Sign Up Sheets will be posted in the High School Band Room. 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.
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 email@example.com with questions or to check your Student Account Balance.
LDBB EXECUTIVE BOARD: There will be two positions on the LDBB
Executive Board open for the 2017-2019 term: Band Manager and Treasurer. 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 Monday, February 6, at 7:00 PM. This meeting was moved so as not to interfere with a holiday! Meetings are open to the public, and all band parents are encouraged to attend. Minutes from previous meetings are posted on this website.
CONTACT: You can email Band Booster Secretary Stacey Stockton at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
The Lower Dauphin Band Boosters' mission is to support our bands...our musicians...and the talented musical faculty that guides them through their musicianship and performance events.
