Band Backer General Meeting
  The next meeting of the Band Backers will be held on Wednesday April 2, 2014 at 7:30pm in room C301at the HS. Everyone is welcome to attend!
We will discuss sub sales, final trip payment, upcoming fundraisers, and general band business.


Mohegan Sun Bus Trip
  Has been announced for March 15, 2014. See side bar for link!
We sold out the first 2 buses and we still have people more people who want to go. So we just added a third bus. There are about 40 seats still available. Tell your friends and come win some money with us. Email Tom Casey at for seats on the bus.


Marching Band Scholarship:
 This is a reminder for any seniors in the marching band interested in applying for the two $750 scholarships handed out by the band backers. The scholarship is listed as "SHS Marching Band Scholarship" in the Bandbacker Handbook.
The handbook lists the requirements and qualifications. All applications will be anonymously reviewed by the scholarship committee. The committee will then decide the two student recipients.


Band Trip in April 2014
 The third and final payment is due by March 1st (if mailing) or March 5th at the Bandbacker meeting. If you have not paid, please contact Pat Brino or Johanna Furgalack. Please provide the Second Payment form when making your payment.


Yard Signs
 Following the lead of many other organizations and teams at the high school we have designed a lawn sign. This sign will allow you, your family, and neighbors the ability to show their support for the Marching Band. Here is the design we have come up with:

These are two sided 18 X 24 inch signs and cost $20 each. If you are still looking to purchase one, contact Tisha and Eric Semmel at


Congratulations BKMB!!!
