This Friday Carlisle travels to State College and truck crew help is needed! Help is also needed Thursday night at the end of rehearsal to load trucks.
For anyone interested in following the buses and equipment trucks we are planning on leaving around 3:30 PM on Friday. The lay of the land at State College requires extra help to get pit equipment up and down a very steep hill. Thanks in advance for anyone who can help. Contact Tim at projects@carlislehighschoolband or 717-512-6988 if you have any questions.
Friday night is our first home game of the season. Students need to report by 4:30 PM to the band area. Because of the uncertain weather forecast students need to bring both their summer uniform as well as be prepared to wear the normal uniform.
