Winter Show Update (Saturday March 7)

Planning continues for the Winter Show on Sat Mar 7! Thanks to the band students who have provided their availability for volunteer shifts during the day. Students, if you could not provide your availability last week, please do so ASAP at www.milfordbands.org/signup.
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 and save the date (March 7) 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].

Coming Soon!

10th Annual Mattress Sale - Feb 15

The Milford Band Boosters will sponsor Milford’s 10th annual mattress sale on Saturday, February 15. This has been a very successful fundraiser at Milford the past several years, and we are very excited to sponsor this event here at Milford High School once again this year. Brand new, name brand, top quality mattress sets with full manufacturer warranties--much higher quality for price than a retail store! All sizes, price ranges, delivery and interest free financing will be available.

Floor models will be on display in the MHS cafeteria from 10am-5pm on Saturday, February 15. If you or anyone you know is in the market for a new mattress, check out this fundraiser! If you need a new mattress before this sale or have questions, please contact Ultimate Fundraising Solutions at [email protected]. Every sale will benefit the band programs of Milford Schools!

We are also looking for volunteer help at the Mattress Sale...click here to sign up!

Volunteers Needed

Mattress Sale
All hands on deck! We are looking for adult and student help at the Mattress Sale on Saturday Feb 15. Students--find a friend and sign up together! This is an easy opportunity to earn service hours and give back to the band. Parents--help chaperone students, or sign up to help with the sale.

School Store Volunteers

Sell snacks and spirit wear in the School Store before and after school. This is a fun way to help the Band Boosters out and get to know the kids at MHS. Rhonda Friedland and Jody Morgan will train you and work with you until you are comfortable on your own.
