    ACC'S - Lower Dauphin Band Boosters will be supplying food for Judges and selling Candygrams at the TOB Atlantic Coast Championships, a band competition held at HersheyPark Stadium.  This is a big fundraiser with an expected income of $2,500 that benefits our band programs – but we need help to reach this goal! The competition is held on two different Sundays, 10/27/19 and 11/3/19.  Typically, the ACC’s run from about 7 AM to 7 PM, and we will need a lot of VOLUNTEERS.  We also need FOOD, DRINKS and CANDY donations for both days. 
    • FOOD DONATIONS - Crockpot Meals like Soups, Pork BBQ, Hamburger BBQ, Mac & Cheese, Baked Ziti, Meatballs should be heated and brought to the Stadium by 9:00 AM on the day of the event, but let us know if you need to make other arrangements to get them there.  Desserts are also needed.
    • DRINK DONATIONS - Cases of Bottled Water and Pepsi Brand Drinks should be dropped off at the HS Band Room by 10/18/19.    
    • FOOD STATION VOLUNTEERS - Help is needed to serve food to the Judges and clean up afterwards.
    • CANDY DONATIONS - Full-sized candy bars - especially Twix, Sour Patch Kids, Swedish Fish and M&M’s (plain & peanut) - plus individually packaged snacks such as Goldfish Crackers and Combos can be brought to the HS Band Room any time before the event.  
    • CANDYGRAM VOLUNTEERS - Parents are needed to sell Candygrams, and students are needed as runners.  
     
    CITRUS - Band students are now selling fresh fruit that will be coming up from Florida Indian River Groves and will be delivered to the HS sometime in early December.  Student profit ranges from $4 for the $20 items to $6 for the $25-$39 items and $9 for the $40 and up items.  A PDF of the Brochure is below, and hard copies are available in the HS Band Room.  Orders and payment (checks made ​out to "LDBB") are due by October 29.  There is also a link for online orders.  If your family or friends order fruit online to be shipped to the organization (LDHS), then there are no additional shipping fees.  However, the student is responsible for pick up of these items. If you order online and have it shipped to a private home address, then there will be additional shipping fees. The Boosters cannot ship or deliver any orders to family or friends.  Please contact Mary Yohn at maryyohn@gmail.com with questions.
      
    WHOOPIE PIES - Pick up will be at the HS during the evening of October 24.  Contact Carole Spada at spadafam@comcast.net with questions.
     
    CANDLE FUNDRAISERPick up is tentatively changed to Wednesday, October 30, to coincide with the Drumline Parent Meeting.  Watch for updates!  If you have any questions, please contact Kelly Williamson at Kelly-Williamson@comcast.net.
     
    YOU GOT PLAYED - Show your LD Band spirit by filling someone's yard with a display of band instruments and signs!  Cost is $5 for a 2 day display and $10 for 5 days.  Put your completed ticket and payment in the booster filing cabinet.  Band members will have $1 deposited in their student account for every display they sell.  Contact Tabitha McQuiddy at tsmcquiddy@msn.com if you would like to help with this fun fundraiser.  NOTE: Homes getting "played" must be within the LD School District and cannot have Homeowners Associations that prevent them. 
       
    FOOTBALL GAME - This week's game is Friday, October 11, AWAY versus Governor Mifflin (101 South Waverly St, Reading).  There is NO SCHOOL this day, so students and chaperones should report at 4:30 PM.  There will be NO MEAL provided, so students should eat before they come and bring a snack and/or money for concessions during the 3rd quarter.  Dress is full uniform.  LD Band is scheduled to perform Halftime.  Return to LDHS will be late as this school is further away.

    SENIOR NIGHT - The October 18 football game against Hershey is our Senior Recognition Night.  All senior marching band members must complete and return the form to Mr. Richardson by Oct. 15 at the latest! 
      
    CHAPERONES & PIT CREW - There are still some open slots on the chaperone sign-ups!  If you want to chaperone a game that is full, email the Booster Secretary at ldbbsecretary@gmail.com, and we will put you on a wait list as we often have last-minute cancellations. 

    CHAPERONE CLEARANCES - Parents interested in chaperoning football games or band trips, or helping with band events that would put them in contact with students, must submit clearances to the LD School District and wear a district-provided Volunteer Badge.  Visit the District website for details.
     
    FOOTBALL MEAL SIGN UPS - If you are able to help prepare or serve meals to our band members before football games this fall, please click on the link below.  If you volunteer to prepare food, the boosters can purchase the ingredients - we just need help baking and cooking!  Contact Band Manager Chali Milic at comanagersldbb@gmail.com with questions.
     
    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 Tabitha McQuiddy at tsmcquiddy@msn.com with questions or to check your Student Account Balance.
     
    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 Band Booster Meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, November 12, starting at 6:15 PM.  Meetings are open to the public, and all band parents are encouraged to attend.  Minutes from previous meetings are posted on this website.
