MCGC WBHS Invitational: Sunday, March 17th, 2019

We Need Volunteers!

This is a HUGE fundraiser for the boosters. The funds we raise help offset the costs of all of the programs that BBAWB supports!

We need EVERYONE to volunteer to make this a successful event.   The show will run most of the day.  Some jobs require people to do set up and clean up, such as concessions, so those jobs are also before and after the show. Just let us know what hours you are available, and we will try to schedule it.  We are in need of helpers in concessions, admissions, parking lot, and band guides. MCGC does allow students to be band guides for the winter invitational, so students are welcome to contact Ruth.

Need student community service hours?  This event is a great way to earn those hours!

*** Contact Ruth Richards today to sign up! ***




Tomorrow is the final day to order Winter Percussion and Winter Guard show shirts!


Orders can be placed online at https://www.jreshirts.com/
