WINTER DRUMLINE AND GUARD COMPETITION SCHEDULE
Marching season may be over but Winter Drumline and Guard

Winter Drumline or Guard, we can use your help.
If you are available to drive a Penske truck for
our competitions, please let Mr. Hammond know.

WHO SAYS FUNDRAISING CAN’T BE FUN?

Earn money to offset your Fair Share of trip fees. It’s easy!
As a volunteer at a King’s game, Golden 1 Arena concert or
event, or River Cats game, you can earn between $60-75
per shift, per person. A family of four (volunteers must be 18
or over) can easily earn $240-300 in one shift, which will
put a huge dent into paying your Fair Share Fee or trip costs.
Text JFKBAND2 to 81010 for upcoming volunteer opportunities,
or check out our fun Fundraising page. You’ll be glad you did!
Contact Karen Albert for answers to your questions.
