Christmas Tree Sale – December 11 – 13, 2015

Our annual Christmas Tree Sale is our biggest fundraiser of the year.  We use the money to help the band with senior scholarships, equipment, color guard uniforms and flags, miscellaneous band supplies, and more.  The Tree Sale is a huge undertaking and requires many volunteers.

New this year — Initial Sign Ups:  Please sign up for only one shift during the initial sign up (Nov. 21 and 22).  This is to ensure that everyone can find at least one shift that works for them.  Starting Nov. 23, you may sign up for multiple shifts.

Please sign up here:

PLEASE REMEMBER:  The trees arrive on Friday 12/11 between 2:30 and 3:00 and we need ALL students (and many parents) to unload the trucks.  It takes about an hour or so.
