FROM THE BOOSTERS

All after school rehearsals are Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:20PM till 5:30PM unless otherwise announced.

PHANTOM TEES ON SALE NOW TILL FRIDAY, AUGUST 21

Show-off your band spirit with a field production t-shirt. Login to CHARMS and click the ONLINE STORE to place your order. The shirts will be ready in time for the first football game. Most sizes are $10 each and XXXL are $12. Orders must be paid in full when you pick up your shirt. We accept cash or checks made payable to PEPPERELL BAND BOOSTERS.

CONCESSION STANDS

Our first home game will be Friday, August 28 and we need dedicated volunteers to help with our concessions. Concession sales are responsible for a big portion of our general fund for the band. Did you know that if one family member could work only one game this season, we’d have it covered!!! Login to CHARMS to see the schedule and for volunteer slots.

BOTTLED WATER DONATIONS

We are still accepting your cases of water for the band. It can get mighty hot in those uniforms and it takes a lot of water to quench the thirst of a hard working band. Please consider dropping off two cases by the band room.

BOOSTERS MEETING

Our first meeting for the season will be Tuesday, August 11 at 7PM in the band room. Our next meeting will be Tuesday, September 8th. Everyone is automatically a booster but everyone is encouraged to become a voting member by paying a $5 annual membership fee ($10 max per band family). Everyone is invited to come and learn how you can support YOUR Dragon Band!

ROME BRAVES

Grand-Slam fundraising, there are still plenty more volunteer slots available and opportunities to earn credits towards your band account. Login to CHARMS to see the schedule.

“It was noted in 1961 that the Pepperell Schools Band Parents Club was “newly-formed”. Mr. Leithauser (band director) explained to the group why such a club would be useful and told of things the club could do to help the bands.”  Michael & Amy Scott, Booster Presidents; Michelle Shanahan, Vice President, Rebecca Segrest; Treasurer; Myra Rogers, Secretary
