    Restaurant fundraiser at the Hummelstown Aroogas on Tuesday, September 27th.  The coupon voucher is here for you to hand out to anyone and everyone prior to your event. These coupons can be redeemed at only at the Hummelstown location all day long on 9/27. Please be sure to hand the coupon voucher to your server or bartender so it can be attached to the receipt for proper credit. LDHS Band Boosters will receive 15% of total sales.

    Save Around Coupon books were handed out on Tuesday 9/6 at practice.  Laura Holahan will be running this fundraiser and all questions can be directed to her sterckie@hotmail.com.  Students will have to sign for a book with the intention of selling it and/or they must complete an order form. These coupon books include a free 12-month Savings App with thousands of additional local and national coupons. Everyone can save money and help students raise funds for the Disney trip this spring.  Some basics for you:
    2. Books are $25 - students earn $7.50 for every book they sell (for Harrisburg) and $6.00 for every book outside of our area
    3. For every 5 books sold students will get a free book.
    4. For every 3 books sold they will get $5 in cash after the fundraiser ends.
    5. They can be ordered in other areas of the country by using this link/code: https://www.sapaynow.com/284223

    MARCHING BAND INFO

    • REMIND MESSAGES - Both students and parents should sign up for their respective Remind classes to receive important notices from Dr. Richardson.

    • 2022 Marching Band Tentative Schedule (subject to change)

    FUNDRAISER COORDINATORS - ​The Boosters need PARENT VOLUNTEERS to help run student sales.  You will NOT need to handle money - you just need to coordinate with the vendor, help promote the sale, and arrange for delivery/pick-up of the product.  It's an easy way to help take some of the load off the Booster officers.  Please contact us if you can help coordinate any fundraiser in the future.  

    AMAZON SMILES - If you purchase online from Amazon, here is an easy way to support the band!  Go to Smile.Amazon.com, sign in with the same account you use for Amazon, select "Amazon Smiles" under "Your Account" and search for "Lower Dauphin Band Boosters."  If you already have a different charity selected, you can change it by going into "Your Account" settings and selecting the option to "Change your Charity."  

    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.
     
    FUNDRAISING SCHEDULE - The updated schedule for our 2022-23 fundraisers is posted under "Forms & Schedules" on this website. Dates and events are subject to change, but we hope to provide lots of opportunities for students to earn money to cover their band expenses, including the Disney Trip!
     
    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 (when school is in session). Contact Treasurer Susan Seacord at LDbandtreasurer@gmail.com with questions or to check your Student Account Balance.
