More detailed Description of Volunteer Activities
End of Year Band Banquet (May 2016)
The final band banquet of the year honoring seniors and students. This potluck takes place at Hellgate. Need one committee chair and people to help.
Uniforms (Beginning of season)
Need a committee of helpers to assist students in getting the correct size for their uniforms, check in and check out, be available for repairs, etc.
Photographs (all year)
Photographs are collected all year and utilized at the End of Year Banquet, social media, etc. Need someone to store all the photos for the year. When parents take photos, this is the person to whom we send them.
Video of Performances (all year)
Mr. Slater always needs videos of performances to share with students as well as for audition materials when submitting for acceptance into various festivals. Looking for a person who likes to take video plus someone to archive video.
Swing for a Knight Fundraiser (Event date TBD)
This fundraiser takes place at the Senior Center and the Jazz Band performs, along with swing dance instructor providing lessons. This committee gets the venue ready, food to serve guests, tickets for sales, silent auction, etc.
Fundraising (all year)
The Wish List never ends, nor does the constant flow of opportunities for our band kids. Fortunately neither do the fundraising opportunities.
Band Gear (Merchandise) Committee (all year)
Your kids can sport band gear all year long. So can you. Help create the items for sale.
Publicity (all year)
Need someone to post Facebook announcements, send press releases, etc. to help raise awareness in our community of the Hellgate Bands.
Fry Bread Fair Committee (Fair is August 7-13, 2017)
One of our largest money making opportunities both for individual families who work the booth but also for the band. Responsibilities are divided up between committee members and also volunteers to work the booth during the fair (see below). This committee actually starts working in June.
Fry Bread Booth Volunteers (August 7-13)
A Volunteer Spot form will be coming around later, but please let us know if you and your student are interested in working the booth.
Citrus Fruit Sale
Need a coordinator. The kids make the sales and it is a team effort between band, orchestra and choir departments.
Butter Braids Fundraiser
Need a coordinator. Always a popular item and easy to sell.
Take Donations at Concerts
When the Hellgate Bands perform we often have a donation request. Sometimes it’s for the band but often it is for other worthy non-band causes. You take money, tickets, meet and greet people at the door.
Move Music Equipment
When the bands perform outside of Hellgate, we need parents and vehicles to help move equipment. Especially if you have a van or large vehicle, we can use your help.
Snacks for Marching Band and Other Events
We often are looking for snacks and other food and beverage items for the students when they are performing. If you like to feed high school students, this is for you.
