Calling ALL Band Parents: Volunteers Are Needed to Help With Concessions at Abshier Stadium
The 2018-19 Fall schedule for volunteer opportunity has been posted on SignUp.com. Please visit the Deer Park High School Band home page at http://dphsband.org/ to access the SignUp link and to review the dates available for volunteer hours.

The Band Booster Club helps raise money for band expenses throughout the year and our top revenue event is running the concessions at Deer Park Abshier Stadium. The concessions are open during all home games for Football Varsity, Junior Varsity and Freshman, TIFI Little League Football, Boys Soccer Varsity and Junior Varsity, Boys Baseball Varsity, Junior Varsity and Sophomore and DPHS Graduation. This is an opportunity for band students and parents to volunteer a few hours to help out during these events. As an extra bonus, volunteers will earn a $10 charms credit for each shift worked which will be applied to the student account. This is a good way to get a head start on fund raising for our next band trip! If you have any questions, please contact Gracie at groyall@comcast.net

We appreciate your time and commitment to the Deer Park High School Band Booster Club and look forward to working with each of you!
