We have recently launched our “MHS Band Needs New Hats” campaign. The attached flyer (MHS Band Needs New Hats.pdf) explains our sponsorship program. Please consider donating toward a new hat. $75 will purchase a hat, hat box and plume and include your sponsorship note on a label inside the hat box. We are also happy to accept a donation of any amount so that our band can march with pride in new hats by September.
The Melrose High School Band would like to thank these generous donors to our Hat Fundraising efforts! Check the scale above for the current status and consider a contribution to help move us to 75!
