Volunteers Needed October 15th

Uniform Helpers Needed

Tuesday, October 15th
During Rehearsal: 5:30-8pm

To add an extra visual aspect to the show, we are adding sashes to the uniforms. We will be sewing Velcro inside the jackets, cutting the fabric for the sashes, gathering the tops of the sashes, etc.

If you have a sewing machine, rotary cutters, cutting mats, or a tape measure, please bring it along. If you don’t have sewing experience, that’s OK too! We still need help pulling uniforms, rehanging, and other tasks. It’ll be fun!

No need to sign-up, just bring a smile and appear in the band hallway! Thanks for your help!

Volunteers Needed: Uniform Fittings

UPDATE: While we will still need volunteers… The dates of the fittings are postponed due to the Band Room not being ready. We will update as soon as we have the new dates.

Uniforms will arrive back on Monday, August 12th.

We will start uniform fittings on Tuesday, August 13th at 3pm for Seniors and Juniors.

Thursday at 3:30pm, we’ll fit Sophomores and Freshmen. We’ll hopefully be moved back to the Band room by then — so keep your fingers crossed.

If you are available to help fit uniforms – it’s easy, no experience or sewing required – but maybe a little ironing… Please let Sandy know via email or at 626-318-9533. The more helpers we have, the quicker the fittings go.
