Welcome to the new year and volunteer opportunities

Welcome to 2021! We are excited for the start of this new year and the concert season ahead. Next concerts will be January 26th and 28th. New female concert band members, who have not already emailed, should reach out to Melissa Wilson to get sizing for concert dresses turned in, we are still missing a few members. As school returns, so does concession stands at soccer and basketball games. We are currently in need of volunteers for games starting this next Wednesday. These concession stands are a huge portion of the fundraising that the band does and up to this point have been manned by the same handful of people. We appreciate this volunteers for stepping up and helping out, but we need others to offer a hand. Reach out to Melissa Wilson if you have any questions or go to the volunteer signup tab to find out dates and times needed and to sign up. Thank you for being part of the GCHS Shark Band family and welcome to 2021!
