Spirit Wear Top 7 List

Posted on Aug 16, 2018


7. T-shirts, tanks and shorts…because September can still be hot and you need to keep cool while looking cool!

6. Jackets, hoodies and sweats…because we are in Wisconsin and one week after you’re sweating, you’ll probably be shivering.

5. Blankets and headbands…because by holiday parade time, you’ll definitely be shivering.

4. Stadium chairs…because whether the bleachers are too hot or too cold, you’ll feel just right sitting in one.

3. Duffels and cinch bags…because they’re perfect for carrying necessities to marching band competitions (or anywhere for that matter!)

2. There are two logos to choose from (Cadets or Waukesha West Bands)…because these aren’t just for marching band families!

1. There’s only one week to order if you want to get your items by September 7th, so click on this link and get in the spirit today!

Help Us Spring For New Uniforms!

Posted on Mar 28, 2018

You can help our uniform fund grow by ordering spring flowers, plants or hanging baskets from any West band member now through May 1st. Shady Lane Greenhouses is once again offering a variety of annuals and perennials that will add beauty to your landscaping and this year will also add more “green” to our fund in order to help us outfit the Cadets of Waukesha West in all new uniforms beginning with our 2019 season. Band families are encouraged to invite friends, family, neighbors, co-workers and alumni to place orders so we can reach our ambitious fundraising goal as quickly as possible since we’ll have to begin the uniform ordering process soon!

Click here for sales details and order forms and see Shady Lane’s website for more photos.  Flower sales run from now through May 1st and pickup will take place outside the auditorium entrance on Wednesday, May 23rd.
