Volunteers Needed!

Posted on Sep 11, 2016

The two biggest band fundraisers of the year are quickly approaching!  The success of these events and their ability to support our band program and students rely on the efforts of all our parents, alumni and friends and we still need some volunteers to help make 2016 our best year ever! Please check out the SignUpGenius links for the Fox River Marching Band Invitational on Sunday, September 25th and the Homecoming Dinner on Friday, September 30th before the homecoming game to see how you may be able to donate a couple hours of your time on either (or both!) days.  

As always, we appreciate your help and generosity.  Thank you!
