BKMB President’s Update, July 5, 2023

Happy Fourth of July, Blue Knights Marching Band Families! Here’s an update on all things BKMB πŸŽΆ

Program Guide Ad Sales

      A list of businesses who have purchased ads for the MOTK 2023 Program Guide has been requested by many of you, so a list has been posted to the website. Click this link:


      Here are the important documents for Ad Sales:


      Please remember that when you are selling ads to give the purchasing business a Sponsor Poster and instruct them to hang it in their doorway or window. That way they don’t get bombarded by band kids!

      It is extremely important that the entire form is filled out and all parts are received by the Program Guide Committee. If information, or payment, or the actual ad is missing, it will delay updating your student’s points balance. Your student is responsible for making sure that the businesses who bought ads send in the information. The Committee will not be following up with your student’s sales. 

Volunteer Leaders Needed

      We have immediate openings for specific volunteer chairperson positions. If you would like to learn more about these positions, please contact Dawn Dickau at correspondence@southingtonbkmb.com.
