News From the Band Room
ELCO RAIDER BAND
Hi Folks - It's hard to believe, but this week marks the halfway point of the regular football season. We will be at home this week against Wyomissing. Prior to the game, we would like to get a group photo of the entire band in the stadium, so we will be marching over to the stadium a little earlier than normal. I would also like to get individual photos of all of the seniors in their uniforms and with instruments.
Please read the information below regarding the tailgate picnic before the home game on October 7.
Reminders for this week:
Uniform: Full Uniform
Report time: 5:15pm
Depart for Stadium: 5:45pm
There will be no meal served before the game this week.
As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to email me: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have a great week!
The boosters will be sponsoring a tailgate party for all the band members and their families before the Homecoming football game on October 7th in the front yard of the high school. The tailgate will start around 4:30pm. Please see the attached participation form. The cost is $5/person. Band members are free. Please have your child submit your reservation with payment by OCTOBER 4TH in the lockbox in the bandroom.
Lebanon County Band Exhibition
The Lebanon County Band Exhibition will be held on 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 5pm. 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.
