Booster meetings are for any parent, guardian, or caregiver of a student in the band program. They are usually monthly meetings for parents/boosters to share information, hear about volunteering opportunities and learn about all things band. Doc also attends and shares his latest news. Since we have not been able to meet for several months, we have much to talk about and are looking forward to seeing you all.
Don't forget to bring your mask and a chair!
Do you have a story to tell about the Athens Drive Band Program? Would you be willing to share how Doc and this program have positively impacted you or someone you love? We are seeking testimonials that can be used as part of a brand new fundraising initiative called Back the Band! This donation campaign is designed to rebuild the band program from the devastating losses of 2020 by reaching out to family, coworkers, businesses, neighbors, friends and followers with our story.
Our organization is just one of many seeking support during these difficult times, but we know how important it is to protect THIS program and ensure its future. If you would be willing to share your uplifting story to potential donors and friends of the band, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
