Volunteers Needed in July

Uniform Fittings

We will need five or so parent helpers to help fit uniforms on the first two workshop days, Monday, July 29th and Tuesday, July 30th. We will begin at 11am and go through 12:30pm. No sewing or experience needed – only snaps for hemming. The more helpers we have, the more students get fitted for uniforms.

Band Camp

We will need two bus riders and a shuttle driver to get the students to Band Camp at Cal Poly Pomona on Wednesday, July 31st. The shuttle driver will need to follow the buses to Band Camp and then bring the bus riders and truck driver back to LCHS. We will leave at 9am on Wednesday, July 31st, and return around 11:30am. The shuttle driver should have a car/van that seats an additional four adults.

Note: We have a shuttle driver for Wednesday July 31st. We still need one for Friday, August 2nd.

We will need the same number of adults on the return trip coming back from Band Camp on Friday, August 2nd. Adults will need to meet at LCHS at 6:30pm, and return to campus around 9pm.

If you have never been to Band Camp, now is the time to check it out and see where your student will be spending their time.

If you are interested in volunteering for one of the above, please let Sandy Miller know.
