Please check back here frequently for info about upcoming
events, schedules, and details which may or may not be coming home in your
student musician's backpack.
DONOR T-SHIRT: The Band Boosters are looking for businesses, organizations and music-loving individuals to make donations to help cover the cost of new uniforms and equipment, and in return we will print their name or logo on the back of the official Marching Band T-shirt. Students wear these shirts during football games, at school, on trips and at other band events, so this is a great advertising opportunity for our donors. There are two levels of donations: Blue ($200) and White ($125). Students will earn $60 for every Blue Level donation they bring in, and $40 for every White Level, so this is a great way for students to pay for their band expenses! The Donor T-shirt Form is below. Completed forms, payment, and logo (if needed) are due by August 1, 2017. Contact Susan Seacord at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
CASSEL VINEYARDS FUNDRAISER:
Come join LD Band for an evening of Dinner, a Concert, and Wine Tasting at Cassel Vineyards (80 Shetland Drive, Hummelstown). Event will be held on Saturday, June 17, from 5:00 - 8:30 PM
(rain date June 18). Dinner is by Dafnos Restaurant of Hershey. Music provided by Corinna Joy and Modern Blue. Cost is $25 per ticket, and $7 of that will go to the band student to help pay for their band expenses. Contact Kelly Williamson at email@example.com
with questions or to get your tickets.
BAND CAMP: Mark your calendars! Band Camp for the 2017-18 marching season will run from July 31 thru August 3 from 9 AM-9 PM and August 4 from 9 AM-1 PM. There will be a Pool Party at Hummelstown Pool on Friday, August 4, starting after camp ends. Post Band Camp practices are August 7-8 from 6-9 PM. The Annual Parent Picnic and Preview Show is August 9, and the band will go see a live broadcast of the Drum Corp International Quarterfinals at the Regal Theatre on August 10. Go to the Marching Band page on the school's website for more details and forms that need to be filled out.
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.

PAYMENTS: Please make payments to the Band
Boosters in the form of CHECKS or MONEY ORDERS so

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 Tina Rife at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or to check

encouraged to attend. Minutes from previous meetings are posted on this
