“We’re working on our band cards and we hope to have them in the hands of the students by the end of next week. This year we have 30 businesses. The cost of each card is $10 and the money helps pay for trips, band fees, equipment and anything band related,” said Carol Babb, Band Booster Club president. “This is going to be an exciting year full of change. Everybody is working hard and we’re just excited.”
The full marching band will rehearse as one unit during band camp next week from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Major sponsors for this year’s band camp include Kmart, Chick-fil-A, Captain D’s, Little Caesars and Wendy’s.
“Even though it’s going to be hot or it might be raining, we will be practicing everyday rain or shine,” Murrell said. “We’re here for the school and the community. Everywhere we go we will put on our best show to represent who we are.”
