Last Call for Notre Dame Football Concessions

This is the last call for students/parents interested in working at the Notre Dame Football games this coming Fall. If you are interested or need more information please contact Sherri Keene at (269) 921-0506 or via email slkeene32@yahoo.com by Wednesday, June 7th. Right now we do not have enough people to work the event. This would be a great opportunity to add funds to your band student's account, while experiencing the magic of home Notre Dame games. All band parents - middle and high school, can participate. Students aged 16 and older can also participate.

Berrien County Youth Fair Fundraising Opportunities

Every year the band has the opportunity to work at the Berrien County Youth Fair to raise funds for students' band accounts. All band parents - middle and high school, can participate. Students aged 16 and older can also participate.


We are confirmed to work at the Entry Gates (taking tickets/money). Parents and students sign up to work one (or more) four hour shift(s) during Fair Week (August 14-19). If this is something that interests you or you'd like more information, please contact Sherri Keene at (269) 921-0506 or via email slkeene32@yahoo.com. These shifts fill fast - don't get left out!


We also work the Friends for Berrien Korn Dog Booth. Information still coming regarding those shifts.
