Hello Band Families,

It’s hard to believe that summer vacation is almost over for our marching families and that we start a week from tomorrow! I wanted to give ALL our band families a few important reminders.

For ALL band families - We are in urgent need of volunteers to work our Ameris amphitheater shows this week; we have Train & the Goo Goo Dolls on Wednesday, July 10 and Luke Combs on Friday, July 12. As Yvonne Grzesiak wrote this morning, we need someone to serve as stand manager on Wednesday evening and five additional volunteers including a stand manager and a cash manager for Friday evening. If you are able to help, please commit ASAP! If you have volunteered and find you cannot come, please let us know ASAP so we can fill your spot. We are required to let the Legends folks know 2 days in advance who is on our volunteer roster (tomorrow for 7/10 & Weds for 7/12). We can make changes after that, but it is difficult. Also, we lose $50 for every volunteer under the minimum number that Legend thinks we need for the evening. Students 16 & over may work in the stand as long as they are accompanied by a parent, and our total ratio of adults to students in the stand isn’t any lower than 2:1.

The Charms store will be closing for under uniform items, marching shoes, extra show shirts, parent polos, and wind breakers by 9 am tomorrow, so place your orders this evening. We need to place our order with our vendor by tomorrow afternoon so that we can receive show shirts in time for the marching performance on the last day of camp. We will only be placing ONE order for show shirts this year, so, parents, now is the time for you to order them for yourselves and other family family members. Remember, your marching student’s shirt is already included in the marching PEF and you do not need to order one for them.
