Last Home Game of the Season and Senior Recognition!

This Friday is the last home game of the season and Senior Recognition  The band will be performing after the game. 

Band Treat Bags

We would like to provide Halloween treats for the band and are in need of candy donations. If parents can contribute a bag or two of candy so that treat bags for the kid can be made, it would be appreciated. Treats will be given out at the last home game. Candy can be dropped off at Mr. Crone's office until Wednesday.

We are in big need volunteers to assist with the Pit and concession stand. Ellen will be out of town Friday and will not be there. Let's show her she's trained us well and make her proud  by stepping up to set up, clean up, and work hard during the game.
