Ride of the Patriots this coming Friday, Saturday, and Sunday!
This event is sponsored by Patriot Harley Davidson and the local Hog chapter to honor our Armed Forces on Memorial Day weekend. Created partly in order for our band to participate in a parade 21 years ago, this has become a tradition for the band and Fairfax. On Friday and Saturday, the store is asking us to advertise the band and sell water at their festival. Adults will participate on Friday and students can participate on Saturday. The weekend culminates in the parade on Sunday morning from Captain Pell’s down to Patriot Harley. Students will be needed from 6 a.m. until approximately 9:30am. Please wear your “summer uniform” consisting of band polo, khaki shorts and neutral (black, white, or grey) sneakers. Here is the link to volunteer! Sign up Genius
Band Banquet, Friday, May 31:
Our band banquet will be held in the cafeteria at 6:00pm. A full buffet dinner will be provided once again by John Wood and 29 Diner with dessert and awards following. Please register NOW so we can plan for the right amount of food. Even if you are not eating with us but still attending, indicate that on the registration link below. Please RSVP as soon as possible!
