Help the SCHS Band - Contest Parent Volunteers Needed!

Greetings SCHS Band Parents,
 
The time has come where we need to call on your help in order to have a successful fundraiser for the SCHS Band. We have two events on back-to-back Saturdays with the potential to help the band earn revenue towards buying new chairs for the band room, new instruments and equipment, and helping us towards getting new uniforms!
 
33 high school marching bands from across the State of Tennessee will convene on the campus of Stewarts Creek High School over two Saturdays to compete for the Tennessee Governor's cup.
 
How to help: We are asking for at least one parent of every band member to sign-up for one volunteer shift on Saturday, October 30 and Saturday, November 6.
 
 
It takes a village to make a successful band program. In order to have two great events we are also in need to borrow a few items . . . take a look at this list and let us know if we can count on you to help us out!
 
 
We are also asking for each of the band members to bring in a 12-pack of canned coke products. We are asking for cans over bottles due to supply chain shortage.
 
Freshmen: Coca-Cola Classic in Cans - 12-Pack
Sophomores: Sprite in Cans - 12-Pack
Juniors: Diet Coke in Cans - 12-Pack
Seniors: Dr. Pepper in Cans - 12-Pack
 
If you would like to contribute more, that is fine too! If you get to the store and there is only one 6 pack left on one drink, please feel free to grab another coke product in cans from the list above.
 
We will be reaching out to you again soon for some additional items from our hospitality committee. In the meantime, we thank you for your help and we thank you for support of the Stewarts Creek High School Band.
 
That's all for now!
