The Band Fans is the parent group that supports the Roslyn Marching band. We are about to kick off our 2023 season on March 1, 2023! Please join us and help make this season our best yet!
The Roslyn Band Fans is the parent volunteer organization dedicated to supporting the students of the Roslyn High School Marching Band. We, the parents, serve an integral role at local competitions, band camp, championship competition at Syracuse, Disney trips, and fundraising, by doing the following:
We create and build all the props.
We are the Pit Crew that loads, unloads, gets the props on/off the field.
We feed the kids at Homecoming, Friends and Family, and other events.
We sew and alter costumes to keep our band looking good.
We fundraise to help support the varied needs of the marching band.
We chaperone at band camp.
We create fun, engaging activities for the kids at band camp each and every night.
We help organize the Disney trip, and go and watch them proudly march down Main Street in Magic Kingdom.
AND SO MUCH MORE!
The support we can provide our children is wholly dependent on help from parents like you. We are asking you to commit some time to help us help your kids……Whether you are able to lend a hand at a single show or perhaps commit to more… any and all time is very much appreciated.
First and foremost, it is important that you are connected so that you are aware of what we are planning. Check this website frequently for updates. Join us on Remind (text @roslynmar to 81010 to join). Follow us on Facebook and Instagram.
Called “The Makers” this group brings the props to life. They design and build all the props using different materials. No prior experience needed. Most of the time, we just need hands to hold things down while someone is putting things together. The makers communicate by email/Facebook post.
You can also contact Chelsea, VP of Design at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Join the Pit Crew
This year, we have six local competitions, one away show and the big championship show at Syracuse. We need you to be part of the Parent Pit Crew (unloading props, staging, getting them on/off the field and reloading). Any time you can spare is welcome. If you cannot be part of the Pit Crew for
any reason, please still show up to cheer the kids. It means the world to them.
We have many fundraising events planned in the coming months, including Homecoming, Friends and Family Day, selling ads for our journal and our 50/50 raffle. Please support us in any way you can! Our fundraising efforts provide the program the additional but necessary funds that were not covered by the marching band club fees or the district budget.
We look forward to your participation and support and hope to see you at one of our upcoming events!
