PLEDGES

We are still $68,000 behind collecting pledge payments that were committed to this marching season. That’s $68,000 less than what it costs to put this band on the field! Please continue to make your pledge donation payments. Even though our marching contest season is over, we will continue receiving and paying bills from the ‘Haunted’ season until spring 2018.  We need and appreciate your donations to help make the band fiscally responsible.
