    BAND MANAGER HELPERS NEEDED - We only have one Band Manager this year, and feeding well over 100 hungry students is a big job!  Chali Milic will need a lot of help for Band Camp.  Tasks include preparing, serving and clean up for evening meals Monday-Thursday, July 22-25.  We also need volunteers to Bake Desserts for dinner.  Chaperones are needed for the Pool Party on July 26. Lastly, we will need a few volunteers to help set up and serve food for our Parent Picnic Preview Show on July 31.  PLEASE CLICK ON THE LINK BELOW TO VOLUNTEER!  Any questions, contact Chali Milic at comanagersldbb@gmail.com.

    DONOR T-SHIRT FUNDRAISER - The Band Boosters are looking for local businesses and organizations to make donations, 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, and on band trips, so this is a great advertising opportunity for donors.  Students will earn $60 for every Blue Level ($200) donation they bring in, and $40 for every White Level ($125).  Take the Donor Shirt Form with you to appointments and outings this summer and talk to local businesses about supporting LD Band.  Completed forms, payment, and logo (if needed) are due by July 22.  Contact Susan Seacord at sudewsea@gmail.com with questions.
     
    PITT BAND DAY TRIP - The LD Marching Band will be going to Heinz field for PITT's Band Day on September 7 to perform in the pregame concert, participate in the halftime on-field performance (weather permitting), visit Station Square and more. The planned departure time for this trip has been changed to 4:00 AM because PITT has announced that the football game kick-off is 11:00.  We will take Charter Coaches to and from Pittsburgh, so the total cost will be $77 for Band Students or $67 for friends and family members.  (ALL ADULTS riding the buses must have their LD CLEARANCES!)  You can also drive yourself for a lesser cost.  The PITT RSVP & Payment Form is below.  Deadline to RSVP is June 25, and there are a limited number of seats on the buses.   Contact Steven Seacord at ldbbpresident@gmail.com with questions.
     
    2019 MARCHING BAND - Below is the link to the Registration Form for Marching Band!  Deadline to register and turn in the Medical Form & Contract is June 28.  This year's theme is "Les Misérables!"  The Band Camp Letter which contains the 2019 Marching Band Fees is below.  Deadline to pay fees is July 12.  The tentative Marching Band Schedule is also below (date & times subject to change).
     
    SUMMER PRACTICES - 
    • Full Marching Band Practice (including Percussion & Guard) on Tuesday, June 18, 6-9 PM at the HS.  
    • Sectionals for Brass and Woodwinds only on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 9-10:30 AM.  
    • Color Guard only practice on Thursday, June 20, from 6-8 PM.
    • Percussion only practice on Thursday, June 20, from 6-9 PM.
     
    BAND CAMP DATES - Band Camp will run from 9AM-9PM July 22 thru 25, and from 9AM-1PM on July 26, with the POOL PARTY to follow.  Post Band Camp practices will be held from 9AM-4PM July 29 & 30.  Practice will be held from 9AM-5PM on Wednesday, July 31, with a PARENT PREVIEW DINNER and performance to follow.
     
    BAND MANAGER NEEDED - The Boosters need someone to assist or shadow this position so they can be elected next spring.  Band Managers are important since their main responsibility is feed our kids during band camp and before football games and indoor drumline performances.  They also help organize food for large fundraising events like ACC's and Falconland.  You do NOT have to cook all the food yourself!  What you need to do is prepare menus, make lists and do the shopping (with a booster-provided debit card), track donations, and organize volunteers to prepare and serve the food.  We have a large notebook full of lists, instructions and tips to help you and will provide the support you need.  Please consider giving your valuable time and skills to help our students!  Contact Band Manager Chali Milic at comanagersldbb@gmail.com for more info.
     
    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.
     
    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, July 9, 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. 
     
    CONTACT You can email the Band Booster Secretary Susan Seacord at ldbbsecretary@gmail.com.
