HORNETS STING CENTENNIAL!

Our game at Centennial was a blast! The RHS Marching Band performed the 1st and 2nd movements of their 2021 show during halftime. The stands were packed with RHS students and the RHS football team got the win.


See pictures from the game on our SmugMug website.


Our volunteers showed up in full force to cover the chaperone, photographer, pit crew, and uniform specialist duties. Thanks to everyone who came to help out. Our new truck driver even stepped in to help move equipment and assemble props!


If you aren’t volunteering with the RHS Marching Band, you are missing out on a ton of fun with some great people!

PRE-GAME MEAL SPONSORSHIP

Thank you to the Band Booster Association for providing the pre-game meal to the marching band students. If you know of a restaurant or corporation that would like to sponsor a pre-game meal, please contact DaySha Gibson at roswellbandfundraising@gmail.com or 404.512.1775. Thanks in advance for your help and commitment to the kids!


VOLUNTEER OPENINGS

We still need volunteers (Chaperones, Grill Team, 50/50 Raffle, 3rd Quarter Meals, Concession Stand, and Videographer) for our next home game on September 10th. Pick a position and sign up now!

Please sign up at this link: September 10 Volunteer Opportunities


We are also requesting volunteers for the following:


  • Pre-game meals - We need volunteers to assist with receiving the pre-game food deliveries and distributing to students. This will be in the RHS band room prior to the game and will take about an hour.


  • Soft Drink delivery - Prior to home games, we need a volunteer that could go to the concession stand on Friday morning. This volunteer would unlock the concession stand door so that the delivery person can place the product inside the stand.


If you want to go ahead and claim your volunteer spot for a future game, please log into Charms, open the calendar, and sign up today!


Additional volunteer questions, please contact Stuart Dougherty, stuartdougherty@gmail.com or 404-277-4895. Thanks again to all our wonderful band volunteers, go Hornets!

OPENING FOR BAND TREASURER

We are currently looking for someone to fill the position of Band Treasurer. Although our current treasurer, Aimee Christian, will be active until the end of 2021, we are recruiting now to provide sufficient time for a new volunteer to learn the position. The Band Treasurer manages the finances, budget, and transactions associated with the band. If you would be interested, please contact Aimee at treasurer@roswellband.com.
