Seeking Photographers for Fall Season

Do you own a DSLR camera and enjoy using your camera to capture special occasions? The Marching Flashes will have many special occasions this season and we need your help capturing the moments. If you wish to lend your talent to the band, please contact Travis Sears.

Wanted: Grill Masters

Would you enjoy lending your grilling skills for the band this fall? We are evaluating if there are enough volunteer grillers to prepare burgers and hot dogs for the students in September or October. If you are interested in grilling for the band, please contact our food lead, Melissa Kieper.

Parent Preview Show

The parent preview show will be Thursday, August 26th, 7:30pm at the football stadium. This is the night before our first halftime show performance. Our students' hard work will be showcased, and you will be impressed with the results of the summer’s efforts. Please arrive at 7:30pm, the show will start shortly afterwards.

Meanwhile, please be aware that practices are open to parents, family and friends. Thursdays at 8pm are a good time to see the band wrap up a practice at the stadium. You can catch the first Thursday evening practice at the stadium on August 5th.

Sponsorship Opportunities

Do you own a business or have an employer that would be interested in donating towards a Band Booster sponsorship? For every sponsor you are able to secure, you will receive 10% of the donation to your student’s band account. Franklin Central Band Boosters is a 503(c)(3) tax exempt organization. Your donation is tax deductible.
