This Week in MBB

Donation Day - August 24!

Donation Day is this coming Saturday! On Donation Day, students in the Band and Choral programs go door-to-door to homes in the school district to solicit donations. All students in the High School Band and Choral programs are required to participate.

All Band and Guard students should report to the cafeteria on Saturday 8/24 at 9am. Groups of four students will be assigned an adult driver and a specific route of streets within the district. Each team will then go door-to-door along this route for 1-2 hours collecting donations. Students will always travel in groups, and will never enter a house or leave their driver's sight.

We rely on parent volunteers to drive students along their routes, and also to help with packet distribution and serving pizza afterward. Please use the links at right to sign up. Hope to see you on Saturday!
ReadySetFund
Our online fundraiser raised over $3000 from 76 different Band program supporters! Congratulations to Ashley Fissel for recruiting the largest number of supporters (14). Thanks to all of our Band and Guard members who contacted family and friends outside the Milford area about this opportunity for supporting Milford Bands!

Aug 27 Boosters Meeting

The next meeting of the Milford Band Boosters will be held on Tuesday, August 27 in the MHS Band Room, starting at 7pm. We welcome all attendees--come learn what the Boosters are planning for the upcoming year, and find out how you can get involved! Contact Jason Long ([email protected]) with any questions.

Photo Galleries

Our online photo galleries are up and running thanks to the hard work of our MBB photographers. You may have already seen photos from some of the galleries featured in the Marching Band Facebook feed. You can access all the galleries at SmugMug by clicking this link. If you are prompted for a password, enter stone2019. Our guidelines on photo use and sharing can be accessed here.

Oct 4 Party Hosts

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 (julianne[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.

Cookie Donations

Following their halftime performance at each home football game, the Band and Guard celebrate with cookies and drinks in the end zone. We rely on the generosity of our band families to provide these snacks. Donations of prepackaged cookie can be left with a director or in the cookie bin, which is located in the uniform closet (look for the yellow lid). Cookies such as sugar, chocolate chip, Fig Newtons, etc. are great options. Please avoid cookies with lots of chocolate, as they will melt.

Volunteers Needed

School Store

For the past few years, the School Store has been the Band programs' biggest money maker, and we need lots of help to make it happen again this year. Rhonda Friedland and Jody Morgan will train you and work with you until you are comfortable on your own.
