Request for Assistance
So, there are a few items that will help this year that we need to ask for parental help. Our uniform carts and instrument carts are rusty and needing to be sandblasted so they can be re-painted. Often, parents of the Marching Storm have connections that can help us be effective and efficient with the dollars that we need to spend. If you know someone or have the ability to do the sandblasting, please contact Mr. Campbell immediately.
Once the carts are sandblasted, we will need to paint them with rust resistant paint. If you have a paint shop that you know of that might be willing to help the Marching Storm keep their equipment in good condition, or if you are able to do it, again let Mr. Campbell know immediately.
If you have any alternate ways of helping us get the rust off of our carts, please help us get the job done. These are the carts that our new uniforms and equipment are transported on. Thanks for your ideas and assistance.
The evening begins with our pizza meal and concludes with performances by the middle school Marching Storm and the high school Marching Storm. We will have spirit wear available to purchase so you can show your support for marchers in both bands during parades.
The date of this year's event is June 12. Serving begins at 5:00 pm and the performances begin at 7:00 pm. The form to order your pizza meal is below. And as always, check charmsoffice.com for options with spirit wear.
