This Week in Milford Bands

Virtual Donation Day

Wow! In the first three days of our Virtual Donation Day fundraiser, we raised over $6000 for the Band programs! Remember that the fundraiser runs throughout the upcoming week, and will wrap up at midnight on Sunday Oct 4. Please continue to spread the word to family, friends, and neighbors!
  • If you have already met your individual fundraising goal, congratulations! If you would like to increase the goal amount on your page to encourage continued donations, you can edit your page here.
  • If you haven't created your personalized student page, please take 10 minutes and do it now. Find instructions here.
  • Remember that the top earner in each section will receive a $50 Spirit Store gift card, and the top-earning section will celebrate with an ice cream party!

Chipotle Dine to Donate

Our first Dine to Donate of the year is coming up this week! On Tuesday Sep 29 from 4-8pm, fill that burrito-sized hole in your stomach when you join the Milford Band at Chipotle (5697 Romar Dr, Milford). A full 1/3 of profits will be given back to the Milford Band!

Show this flier at the register to make sure your purchase counts toward the fundraiser. New this year--orders placed online also qualify! Just use code CQP2LXH when you place your order.

End-of-Season Posters

To celebrate our marchers' hard work over the course of the season, Milford Band families traditionally create a poster for their marcher(s) that hangs in the school cafeteria during the last few days of the season. Even without a competitive season, the Band's hard work and dedication to the music deserve to be recognized! Here are some guidelines:
  • Posters can be made on poster board or foam board, and should be 22"W x 28"H or smaller.
  • Put your student's name and grade on the back of poster.
  • Examples of posters from last year are available in this SmugMug album.
  • Get creative! In prior years, posters have typically followed the show theme. This year, consider photos that cover not just Band activities, but also activities that your student has been pursuing during this "2020 Kind of Band Season".
  • As much as possible, we try to keep these a surprise for first-year marchers.
To help build your student's poster, feel free to use the photos that our volunteer photographers have been uploading to SmugMug throughout the season. Link to the albums here. If you need help building the poster, you may find these instructions helpful.

Due to limited access to the school, Boosters will take care of hanging posters this year. You can start dropping posters off at the Milford High School Office beginning on Monday Oct 5. Please have all posters dropped off by Thursday Oct 8 to allow time for hanging. Make sure your student's name and grade are on the back of the poster!
