LW Marching Arts Update
October 29-November 4, 2023
The LWMB will be running the concession stand at the home LWE football playoff game on Friday, November 3. We are looking for 10 volunteers (6 adults and 4 students) to help at the stand and we will also need 4 volunteers to chaperone the game as well. Please sign up via the LWMB Charms if you can help! Approximate times are 4:30pm-9:00pm. Students who volunteer can receive service hours.
Any LWMB family can sign up to help (not just East families). Proceeds from the concession stand go to the LWMB. Thanks for any help you can give!

The LWMB has scheduled a meeting for all incoming or new members on Wednesday, November 8, 2023 at 6:30PM in the Lincoln-Way Central small auditorium (or little theatre). During the meeting new families will be provided with basic information about joining band in high school and all of the exciting opportunities that come along with the experience, along with all of the details of the 2025 Tournament of Roses trip opportunity. Incoming/new members would be 8th graders or any high school student who did not participate in the LWMB this past season.
For Incoming/New Members Only (current LWMB families should NOT fill this out as you are already in Charms):
Are you already all in and want to get signed up? Then please click this link to our Charms Registration Form so you can get signed up to receive emails that contain important info about the trip and fundraising opportunities. You can always fill out this form later, but if you are at all interested in receiving communications about the 2025 Tournament of Roses Parade, it is best to get signed up for the emails ASAP. You can always be removed from the email list if your plans change at a later date!
Families can also find out more about this trip by visiting the following website links:

Please share this information with any families who might have a child that is interested in joining the LWMB next year. The band is always looking for new color guard members and no prior experience is needed!
After the new member meeting, there will be a meeting for EVERYONE at 7:30pm in the LWC Little Theater in which the specific info about the trip will be presented.
