Concession Help Needed for Graduation on Friday, May 25
Deep Park Graduation is Friday, May 25th at Abshier Stadium. This is one of our biggest and busiest events of the year and our last opportunity to raise money to help support next year’s band expenses.   Both home and visitors concessions will be open and need volunteers to help work this event. Volunteers can sign up by clicking the SignUp link on the band’s homepage. Volunteers earn a $10 charms credit and can be applied towards next year’s fund raising for next band trip or fees. If you have any questions, please contact Gracie at groyall@comcast.net
