Winter Show Update (Saturday March 7)

Planning continues for the 2020 Milford Winter Show on Sat Mar 7! This week, Boosters will be visiting band classes to talk to students about volunteer shifts. Students--please review your calendars for March 7, and be ready to let us know when you are available to help.
Milford Winter Show
The Winter Show is the Boosters' largest fundraiser of the year, and we need an army of student and parent volunteers to make it happen. Mark your calendars, save the date, and watch for information on how to sign up to help out! Winter Guard and Drumline ensembles from around the tri-state area will be competing at the event, which will feature a full vendor exhibit area--including Gramma Carol's afghans! Questions? Contact [email protected].

Congratulations!

Congratulations to the Open and "A" Winter Guard teams on their fantastic season-opening performances at the Tristate Marching Arts​ show in Waynesville on Saturday Jan 25!
