2018-2019 Band Booster President Message

Hello HHS Band Supporters!

What an exciting time to be a part of the HHS Band! My name is Melanie Falconer and I have the privilege to serve as the Band Booster President for the 2018-2019 band season.

Practice is soon to begin for our over 400 band students. They will be working hard at music and band camp. We can all look forward to another fantastic half time show, parades and of course, the band’s trip to perform in the Macy’s parade. What an honor for our kids to represent Homewood in the parade on the 40th anniversary of their first appearance. It’s going to be a great year!

We need your help in two vital areas to make this year successful. First, we need volunteers at band fundraising events. These funds help the band directors transport, feed, and support our students during the marching season. These events include working the concession stands for home football games, working at the Back to School Bash (August 25) and in the spring, We Love Homewood Day. Additionally, volunteers are needed to assist with uniforms during band camp and practices in preparation for marching season.

The second way you can support the band is by participating in our Homewood Patriot Band Sponsorship There are three levels of support so individuals, families, and businesses can participate. All levels of sponsorship get recognition on the band website ( Red and Blue level sponsors also get recognition on signage at the Waldrop Stadium concession stands. Please don’t miss out on this easy way to support the band. Thank you again for all your support for the band and I look forward to working along with you this year.

Go Patriots!
