Officers and Committee Chairs Needed for 2017-2018

Posted on Posted in News

We need you. There are many tasks that the Band Boosters must do each year and now is the time to start attending the one-hour monthly meetings and decide hoy you can help the band.

We will be looking for officers and committee chairpersons for next year. We especially need parents of underclassmen.  Many of our very active boosters have seniors and will be leaving at the end of the year.

Remember, it takes all of us to support the wonderful band program that is a tradition at Oakton.  And most of all, it is a lot of fun!

Thank you can help? Contact Barbara Glover at president@oaktonbands.org.
