Band & Color Guard » HELP!


Parents- We need your help!  303 students mean tons of logistics and fundraising.  Please help by jumping in and working with projects that need you.
  • OMEA Judges Food Coordinator - (Oct/Nov) Coordinates parent food donations and purchases to provide meals to OMEA judges at the finals competition.  Work with concessions coordinator(s) to move serving trays, warmers, serving utensils, plates, silver ware, napkins, etc are moved from concessions stand to Welcome Stadium locker room prior to first day of event.  OMEA Finals is at Univ of Dayton Welcome Stadium and runs two consecutive weekends at the end of the season and this is a major annual fund raiser for the band.
    • Help feed the OMEA State Judges and volunteers two Sundays (Nov 3, 10)  Food donations and volunteers are needed.
          Signups Nov 3 | Nov 10
  • Concessions - concession stand sign-ups: PLEASE sign up early so we don't have to beg each week! We NEED all of you to volunteer at least some. The concession stands are our single largest fund raiser and keep us from needing to have fees similar to the bands around us.
  • Front Ensemble Crew - Volunteer to help move equipment from the truck to the field at football games and competitions.  You CAN both chaperone and sideline crew at the same event! Contact Brian Fisher 937.313.8608 (text works) and let him know when you can help. [ sign up! ]
  • Weekend of Jazz Coordinators - Several long time sub-committee coordinators are needing shadows.  Contact
  • Band camp food service. Having band camp at home and using parent volunteers to help serve the food helps us save beaucoup bucks!
    Here are the ways you can help!
    1. Sign up for a time to help prep, serve and clean up for lunch or dinner. This is a great way for NEW PARENTS to see the character of the band and interact with seasoned parents. Please sign up for ONE SPOT ONLY during this first week of sign ups. This is a very popular event and we want everyone, especially new parents to get a chance to participate. After the first week, any remaining spots are free game for anyone! 
    2. Sign up to donate food. In the sign-up link below, there are slots to donate cookies and fresh from your garden produce. You may sign up for as many of these slots as you wish and you may sign up for these in addition to service spots.
    3. Participate in the McDonalds surveys - Each year our local McDonald's donates hundreds of dollars of paper goods and food items to our band camp which saves everybody a lot of money! The only thing that they ask in return is that we fill out electronic surveys. These will be available starting tonight at band camp pick-up at 9pm. SUPER EASY WAY for everybody to help keep band costs down.
  • Project 4: Band fronts
    · We will be using band “fronts” again this year. These are the flat walls that hide guard equipment etc. We have the old ones but are adding more. We need to shop for and purchase “fence rail” and then use a “chop saw” to cut them to length. We have the rest of the hardware to complete this project.
    · This project could be worked on during band practice.
  • Sewing - the flags are in process but we've added a couple of other "TOP SECRET" projects! It's going to be very cool! Please contact Mrs. Myers at , or call/text 937-829-9797.  (See calendar for dates/times)
