Weekend Updates

If you are available at all on Saturday, we ask that you please consider signing up to help at the car show. We are in desperate need of help for both Saturday shifts! Students can also help during the first shift as practice is not starting until noon. Sign Up Here

If you are not able to help at the car show Saturday (this is our first priority) we are going to be starting with setup at noon for anyone who can come out and help. This is a change to the original schedule, so if you aren’t available, just come out and help when/if you can. Send an email if you have any questions. keystone@carlislehighschoolband.org

There are a few food items that still need to be donated. One is cases of water, which was just added to the list today. Please consider donating. Sign Up Here

If you are helping during the band competition, you can park in the grass area along the road behind the home side concession stand. You will need to enter through the main ticket booth, as the gate near the concession stand will be locked. Make sure you have your wristband. (They can be picked up Thursday before or after practice.)

Concessions Updates

There is a lot going on with concession this week and we still need help for all of it! We are:

  • Prepping for the car show on Monday at 6 pm
  • Fall car show is Wednesday – Sunday – Sign Up Here
