It's time for another COMPETITION WEEK! Looking forward to presenting our latest version of the show this week, now that we've added and tweaked several things. Please note THIS IS A WEIRD WEEK SCHEDULE-WISE!!!
MONDAY - Rehearsal 6-9 PM ** Remember this was a change during the summer, as we needed to move our Thursday rehearsal due to the bonfire that night.
Tuesday - Rehersal 6-9 PM (About the only "routine" thing going this week :-)
THURSDAY - Whitehall "Fall Fest" Parade **Remember this was a date change for Saturday, Oct. 5. Report time in uniform is likely going to be 6 PM...but I have yet to receive official confirmation of staging details from the Township. I do know that the parade kicks off at 6:30 PM on the school campus. Stay tuned for more details...as soon as I have them, I will forward on.
*Friday is also the Pep Rally at the HS. HS members should report to the band room at 12:30 PM to get instruments and head to the gym. Attire is band polo or class shirt.
