Band Parents: Volunteers Needed at the Home Football Game, Friday, October 29th!

Please sign up to help the band at the last regular season home game this Friday night!  It is also Senior Knight, and we’re hoping to give our senior parents the night off (unless they really want to help!), so undergrad parents are encouraged to volunteer!

We are looking for parent volunteers and “Podium Pals” for the football game on Friday night. Tasks include setting up the bleachers with seat covers for the band students, escorting the students to the field from the Courtyard, traffic control at two locations, keeping the path in front of the band clear while they play in the stands, crowd control prior to the half-time show, plume distribution, helping to set up podiums for half-time (looking for a few sets of strong shoulders for this and to return the podiums to the school after the half-time show), assist the pit students in getting their equipment onto the field (and off), prop volunteers and assisting with picking up the bleacher covers after the game.  There is NO experience required for any of the tasks – we will certainly assist of all of our newcomers.  We are always eager to meet our new music parents (and always eager to welcome back our previous music parents).

Please meet Karen Bussell near the band doors at 5:45 p.m. for instructions if you sign up for traffic control (if I’m not there, please go to the courtyard) and band field & stand volunteer.  If you sign up for Podium Pal, Pit Crew Volunteer or Show Prop Volunteer, please report to the practice field (to the left of the football field) after the 2nd quarter of the game for instructions). Bleacher cover volunteers to set up at 5:30 p.m. (if we could get at least one volunteer who has previously covered the bleachers to assist with any newcomers who sign up, that would be awesome!)

As always, if you have questions, please email Karen at or preferably, text to (978) 902-9172.
