2016-2017 Band Booster President
Hello band parents, fans and supporters! My name is Cindy Williams and I am very excited to be your Band Booster President for the 2016-2017 school year. We have a very exciting year of football games, half-time shows, parades, concerts, and a trip to New York and Philadelphia! None of this could happen without the support of our band boosters.
There are numerous volunteer opportunities for you throughout the year. Concession stand clean-up day, working concessions for home games, helping with the Back to School bash, helping with equipment set-up, maintaining uniforms, taking pictures, even working here on the website - all of these are important areas that need your help. Becoming a Homewood Band volunteer is a great way to plug in and meet other parents and feel a part of what your child is involved in. And we could not do all of this without you. If you are new to the band, this may seem a little overwhelming, but I promise it will be worth it.
Speaking of “worth it,” did you know the Homewood band will have 400 members this fall? Do you know how many buses it takes to transport over 400 teenagers to an away game? More than a few! And do you know how much pizza they eat on those buses? I can tell you that it is A LOT. I have always admired the diversity of the Homewood band and the fact that everyone who wants to be in band is allowed to participate. But that comes at a cost and the directors are committed to keeping the fees for band at some of the lowest in the city. The way we make up the difference is by having outside sponsors for our half-time show. Take the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of our students and consider becoming a sponsor.
