    BAND CAMP 2020 - Marching Band Camp will be held July 27-31, 2020, with Post Band Camp practices August 3-5.  Please try to schedule vacations around these dates!
     
    UNIFORM PILLOWS - The School Board generously donated the old Marching Band uniforms to the Boosters, so now we can use them to make fun pillows to sell as a fundraiser for band programs.  These will make great gifts for students and alums, BUT WE NEED SOME CRAFTY PARENTS TO HELP MAKE THEM!  If you know how to work a sewing machine and would have some time available this spring or summer, please contact us about serving on the Sewing Committee.  We are also looking for a COORDINATOR for this fundraiser.
     
    VOLUNTEER REWARDS PROGRAM - In an effort to recognize and encourage parent participation, the Boosters will begin tracking volunteer hours and donations.  For every 2 hours you put in or $5 worth of donations you give, your name will be put in a hat for a drawing to win a gift certificate or other prizes at the end of the year.  You can earn volunteer hours by attending booster meetings, chaperoning, volunteering at our indoor shows, or helping with our fundraisers.  If you send in a donation that is NOT listed on SIGN UP GENIUS, please write your name on it or email the Booster Secretary.  The winning name will be drawn at the Band Banquet in May. Booster officers are not eligible for the rewards program. Contact Susan Seacord with questions at LDBBSecretary@gmail.com.
       
    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 Tuesday, March 10, starting at 6:15 PM.  Meetings are open to the public, and all band parents are encouraged to attend.  Minutes and Treasurer Reports from previous meetings are posted on this website.
