For more than 25 years, the Washington Band Boosters have worked diligently to help supply financial support for the band programs at Washington High School and Washington Middle School.
The majority of these funds have been generated from the concession stands at Gardner Park. Through countless hours of volunteer labor, hard work and sweat, the incredible parents and community members have shown their “True Blue” support for amazing band students.
“We are now asking you to get involved with the future of this incredible volunteer organization,” explained a social media post by the school district. “We need volunteers like you to carry us forward and support the legacy of the Blue Lion Band.”
How can community members help? There are two specific needs at this time.
The first need is for a concession stand manager. One or two responsible adults are needed to help oversee the concession stand operations.
Being a concession stand manager would involve setting up, helping with material inventory, guiding volunteers and helping ensure smooth operations during home football games (JH/JV/V). If interested in helping with this position, email [email protected] or [email protected]
The second need is for concession stand workers.
“We need volunteer workers, and many of them to make this work,” explained the post. “All you need is a willingness to give of your time for an excellent cause and a friendly smile.”
Volunteers for the concession stands should be 11-years-old or older.
There will be one single stand open for all home junior high and junior varsity football events this season while both concession stands will be open for all home varsity football events this year. To make this plan work, a lot of helping hands are needed to work during the games.
Those who are ready to provide a helping hand to serve amazing students can go to www.signupgenius.com/go/4090B44A9AB2FA1F94-2021 to sign up for different times they are willing to volunteer.
