IT'S NEARING THE START OF BAND CAMP

We are looking for volunteers to help out during band camp.  

An online Sign-Up Genius has been established for this purpose.  

Please consider helping out ... all of our kids really need to have volunteers around to help out while they stay focused on learning their drill and music for what promises to be our best field show ever!

BAND AIDE NEEDED!

The Pennridge Marching Rams has one of our own in need and we need your immediate help! Monetary donations are being collected to help one of our own Pennridge Band Members whose family is in immediate need of assistance after a recent fire. The Pennridge schools that the family’s children attend are pitching in to assist and we want to help as well!

 

Monetary donations are being collected by the Pennridge Music Association to provide additional assistance to what the schools are able to provide. Please submit any amount of donation you are able to contribute, no amount is too small, and deliver it to the PMA drop box in the High School Band Room. Donations will be collected daily. Please place your donation in a sealed envelope marked "Band Aide”.

 

The donations will then be used to purchase gift cards that will best help this family get back on their feet and continue marching along!

 

Any questions should be directed to Mr. Greg Benson at gbenson@pennridge.org or Karen Kern, PMA President at kernster4@yahoo.com

 

When there is a family in need, we are a family indeed!

The goal of this Gold Award Project is to increase the younger generation’s knowledge of jazz musicianship. By having your child start their knowledge in music at a young age, it will be an unforgettable experience where friends will be made, bonds will be formed, and their thirst for knowledge will begin.
