LHS Cat Band Chronicles
SEPTEMBER 2017, VOLUME 2
WELCOME BACK TO SCHOOL!
This past Friday’s Concessions Stand was a huge success! We were fully staffed and things went very well. THANK YOU TO ALL WHO VOLUNTEERED TO HELP!! JV Football starts this week and volleyball is underway. Please go to CHARMS and sign up to volunteer. If you can’t be there the entire time, please make a note and we will make it happen. Concessions is how we keep our fees low. We are extremely fortunate to have this opportunity, but all stands must be staffed. Keep in mind, your student can also sign up to help. Please click the link to sign-up now.
This year LHS will host the River Bluff Game. This has become the biggest game of the season. Last year, the River Bluff stadium was standing room only. The concessions lines were extremely long. Our goal this year is to have a plan in place to keep people moving, but it will require your help. Let’s show River Bluff how great LHS is and give them a better experience this year with concessions. We will need 35-40 people for this game. The more volunteers we have the better things will go. We anticipate making record sales. Be a part of a record breaking game as the Wildcats go for its 4th straight when over the Gators! GO WILDCATS!!
