News From the Band Room
ELCO RAIDER BAND
Hi Folks - Another great job by the Raider Marching band this past weekend as we celebrated ELCO's Homecoming weekend. The band pumped up the student body at the pep rally Friday afternoon and then had a great performance on the field and in the stands at the game that night. Congratulations to two of our band members, Caden Baer and Samantha Nelson for being crowned Homecoming King and Queen. We were also well represented on the court with a record of 8 band members! Way to go band! This week we are at home again against L-S. Students must go home after school and return by 5:45pm to get ready to head over to the stadium at 6:00pm. We will attempt to get the group picture of the band before the game. There will be no meal before the game.
We also have a mandatory performance on Saturday at the Lebanon County Band Exhibition. Please see below for times and more information.

Thank you to all of the booster parents responsible for putting together a great tailgate meal before the game this past Friday. I think everyone had a great time. It was nice to have the 8th grade band members join us to celebrate homecoming and play with us in the stands.
Lebanon County Band Exhibition
This week we will be performing at the Lebanon County Band Exhibition on Saturday October 15th at Annville-Cleona High School. The exhibition will begin with the ELCO Raider Band at 6pm. Tickets for the event can be purchased at the gate at a cost of $7/adults and $5/students/Sr. Citizens. Gates will open at 5pm with the national anthem starting at 5:55pm. Plan to get there early if possible because seating will be limited. You are also welcome to bring lawn chairs and sit on the hill overlooking the field on either side of the grandstand.
