Summer Fundraising Opportunity
All of the funds you raise through your work-shifts goes to your student's band account. This is a great way to build up their accounts for band camp/marching shoes/future trips. High School students are welcome to work to bolster their accounts as well.
You do not have to work every day; the hours vary. Please give Sherri Keene a call @ 269-921-0506 to secure a shift before they fill up!
