Band Camp -- Week 3

It's the third and final week of Band Camp! Full section ensembles will continue gathering this week on the same schedule they had in Week 2 (Woodwinds 8am-12pm, Brass 12:30-4:30pm, Percussion 5:30-8:30pm, and Color Guard 6-9pm). All of our COVID safety guidelines are still in place (COVID Guidelines for Band Camp).

Week 3 is also Spirit Week...all Band members are invited to dress on the following schedule:
  • Monday: Luau/Hawaiian day (Wear your favorite lei and tropical attire!)
  • Tuesday: Twin Day (Match outfits with a friend or a group of friends!)
  • Wednesday: Wacky Wear Day (pick out the craziest hat/sock combo you can find!)
  • Thursday: Taste the Rainbow Day (Wear any color you want to rehearsal--bonus points if an entire section coordinates!)
Band members should still make sure to wear a 75% white shirt (except for Thursday) and appropriate shoes.
Our Band Boosters photographers have already been hard at work this season! Photos from the first two weeks of Band Camp are available online in our SmugMug albums. The album password is "speak2020".

Booster Notes

Transition of Officers and Committee Chairs

A number of changes took place at the Band Boosters' June meeting involving new Boosters board officers and committee chairs. The Band Boosters are very grateful to the long-serving members who stepped down from leadership positions in June, including Julie Bertermann, Rebecca Burlingham, Julie Ford, Rhonda Friedland, Geoff Gayer, Kiki Gayer, Cathilyn Henson, Alison Lemar, Shana McKinney, Tim Schumacher, Nancy Todys, Paul Todys, and Diane Ziegler.

Newly elected officers include Alison Brice (VP Bands of America), Jennifer Delaney (Secretary), Juli Schultz (VP Drumline), and Kristy Smith (VP Guard). Newly appointed committee chairs include KC Dargis (Photography), Lisa Haghverdi (Senior Parents), Lisa Hezlep (Photography), Lisa Jacobsen (Spirit Wear Sale), Robin Lee (Senior Parents), Jana Lewis (Publicity), Carley Metsker (Senior Parents), Vickie Sears (Band Camp Food), and Maria Troescher (Membership).

Special thanks to the members of the Nominating Committee (Jody Morgan, Julie Ford, and Jennifer Horning) for finding Booster members willing to step up into larger responsibilities.

Regular Booster Meetings

Milford Band Boosters meetings are held on the 4th Tuesday of each month (except for July and December). All meetings start at 7pm. Attendance is open to anyone, and everyone is invited and encouraged to attend. When possible, Band Boosters meetings are held at Milford High School. When necessary, they will be scheduled as virtual meetings (Zoom or a comparable platform), and login information will be provided prior to the meeting.
