Band Backers President’s Message Sept 19, 2023
Good evening, band families!
Congratulations to the BKMB for a great performance at Maloney last Saturday.
Thank you to all the volunteers who helped to get the kids on the field for their first competition.
The Sheehan Competition is cash only. Also, the competition will be held at Lyman Hall High School, not Sheehan High School. See USBands page for the Sheehan Competition: https://usbands.org/events/details.php?ID=762

I will be at the school on the 20th for Disney collections in place of Katie. You can also make payments online.
The next Band Backers meeting will be this Wednesday, September 20th at 6 pm and will be all about Music of the Knight. Please make every effort to attend this very important meeting! The next Disney Trip payment is due on October 20th and will be collected at the meeting. Regular season fees can also be paid at this meeting.
