Marching Band Uniforms
This past week a wonderful group of volunteers washed all of the marching uniforms. The uniforms are now ready for the 2021 marching season, but we need a uniform lead. We need someone or a group of people to take ownership of the uniforms and transition Amy Scott’s knowledge while she is still around. Even if you only want to help with part of this position, it will help us fill the need. Please email Travis Sears at email@example.com if you are interested.
