Ready Set Fund! Online Fundraiser

ReadySetFund
We are entering the second week of our online fundraiser with Ready Set Fund! This is an opportunity for Band supporters outside of the Milford area to go online and provide ongoing support with a small monthly donation ($10/month for 3, 6, or 12 months).
Remember that each Marching Band member has a goal of signing up 3 supporters. Please pass along our website (www.readysetfund.us/MilfordMarchingBand) to family, friends, and supporters outside the Milford area. The fundraiser runs through August 12--please email Jason Long with questions ([email protected]).

DCI Tickets

There are still a few tickets left for DCI Nationals ($45 admission, $15 for bus). Please contact Julie Ford if you are interested.

The bus will leave the band parking lot on Saturday 8/10 at 2pm. Anyone who is not a current band member needs to bring a completed Emergency Medical Form. As in past years, the bus will make a quick dinner stop at the Post Road McDonald's before arriving at the stadium. The bus will return to the High School around 2am.
Drum Corps International

Senior Corner

We are still looking for senior parent hosts for the October 4 band party! Hosts provide the main course and then ask for specific donations for the evening. If you are available to host, please contact Julie Ford ([email protected]) to let her know how many chaperones you will need and what donations you are requesting. Julie will manage the sign-up for donations.
