Band Boosters general membership meetings are on the first Thursday of every month (except July and August), at 7:00 pm in the Band Room. An executive board meeting occurs prior to this meeting at 6:30 pm. on the first Thursday of every month (except July and August). All current members and anyone with an interest in the QACHS Band programs is welcome and encouraged to attend these general membership meetings.
The Band Boosters is an organization consisting of parents, guardians, friends, and family of the students participating in the various QACHS band and color guard activities throughout the school year. The overall mission of the Band Boosters is to support and provide volunteer help to all the bands in every way possible. They provide funds, equipment, help, uniforms, transportation, chaperones, and emotional support in order to enable the students to make the most of their band experience.
The Band Boosters are busy all year long with various projects. They usually have at least one fund raising activity each month, even during the summer. During the Marching Band season, they follow the band everywhere to events and competitions. These volunteers dedicatedly do everything from loading and unloading all the equipment, helping with and handing out uniforms, to setting up props and helping the pit. They even make repairs when possible and build needed items. We need many volunteers when we host a Tournament of Bands competition for the various jobs that need to be done. We can’t do it without volunteers. You do not need any special skills to volunteer; it may surprise you how much you can help. It also benefits your band student when you come out and volunteer to help!
The Band Trip is a big part of what the Boosters help to do each year, giving students from all the bands a chance to visit other cities in the area or travel to wonderful places, compete with students from around the Mid-Atlantic region, and experience being partly on their own for a few days.
One major source of funds for the Band Boosters is running the concession stand at the QACHS Stadium during home games. Whether it is a football game in the fall or lacrosse in the spring, the Band Boosters are there. We need many volunteers to run the concessions stand and we encourage all parents, guardians, family, friends, and students to come join us and help in the stand. It is a busy but fun atmosphere, and the more help we have, the more funds we can make for our band students. Many pieces of new equipment have been purchased due to the hard work in the concession stand.
The list is endless and we really can’t do it without you, so please be sure to come out to a meeting and volunteer for something. Or you can contact the band boosters via email to see what you can do. We welcome all volunteers.
