Car shows are coming! Car shows are coming!

There are 8 car shows scheduled for the Summer of 2017 and we need lots of help! Car shows are the biggest fundraiser for the band! Without profits from the car show, the band boosters would not be able to provide many services to the students. Please consider making time to volunteer and supporting the band.

Sign up to be a volunteer in the concession stand.

Shop and support the band at the same time!

Shop with Scrip Fundraising Program

We have opened a account as an ongoing fundraiser for the Band.  Anyone can purchase gift cards at any time.  You can ask family members, friends, and co-workers to purchase cards as gifts, or to use personally.  So how does it work?

You buy store cards through Shop With Scrip.  The store card is worth the full value of the purchase price, but the Band receives a percentage of the purchase price back.  So if you buy a $100 card for Home Depot (for example), you pay $100.  You now have a card worth $100 to spend at Home Depot.  And the band gets back $4, because Home Depot offers a 4% rebate.  Various store offer 2-13%.  These cards can be purchased online or through the Band; online has a quicker turn-around time, but you must get the CHS Band code from Anne Otto (we’re not allowed to post the code, sorry).  Contact Anne Otto at for additional information and ordering information.

Restoration of Our Historic Band Flags

FlagPic1The Reunion Committee of the 1970 Carlisle High School Band would like to thank the donors to the project of restoring and preserving the two historical CHS Band flags.  The newly restored and framed flags will be officially presented to the  Carlisle School District as part of the Carlisle High School Band Concert on Thursday, May 5 (7:00pm) at the “Clyde and Lyn Barr Auditorium” at Carlisle High School.  Please plan to come to the concert to see how beautifully the project has turned out and to attend the reception in the lobby following the concert.  Click here to read more about the flags and the restoration project.
