The OHS Band Booster organization is a well-oiled machine. This does not happen without YOU, our parents, coming together to support our band and color guard students. Please consider joining one of our committees for 2015-2016. We are especially in need of volunteers to chair our Fundraising, Publicity, Spirit committees and CDL drivers. We are always looking for parents to help out during football season in concessions as this is the largest fundraiser for the band and it is the driving engine that keeps our band fees lower than nearly every other school. We also need an army of parents to work band camp July 30-August 14. Signups for band camp shifts will be at both the Spring Showcase and at the Band Banquet. If you have an interest or questions please contact Michele at firstname.lastname@example.org.
