Concessions Help Needed-Final Days!

We need concessions volunteers for Tuesday Nov. 1 and Thursday Nov. 3 for OMYF playoff games at the field behind OMHS. Please help us by taking this final concessions volunteer opportunity of the year. A big "THANK YOU" to everyone who supported us through the season by volunteering at OMYF and Heardmont. We could not have done it without you! Anise Morris, Concessions Volunteer Coordinator



Thanks to everyone who volunteered in concessions this year!!! To staff each football game requires the support of each and every person in the band to do your part. We still have a commitment with the OMYFootball league. Volunteers are needed for Nov. 1 and Nov. 3. If you have not yet volunteered to work the Heardmont stand or tge Youth football stand, please email Anise Morris to sign up. These are both fundraising opportunities for the band. If you have any questions regarding concessions, please feel free to contact Julie Rock at
Thanks again for a great year!!

As this marching season winds down, I want to offer many thanks to all my fellow Truck Dawgs for so willingly offering your time, talent, and service. Our close-knit group has risen to many challenges this season (the Homewood contest… need I say more?!?!), and I am proud to have served with you during this time. As a senior dad, this past Friday night was one I found humbling as I took to the sidelines for Senior Night. I remain in awe with the effort, efficiency, and just downright love of this work that you guys displayed for our beloved band. What a fantastic team! Looking ahead, we’ll have more challenges as we move in concert season and I’ll continue to call on you for help. Meanwhile, enjoy the well deserved rest. You done good, dawgs! Woof, woof!!!
Mark Cook, Band Equipment Manager



We will be meeting on Tuesday at 9:30 to check uniforms. This will be the last Tuesday meeting this year:(. We are planning to go to Joes Italian for our lunch so please come join us. The uniforms will be sent off to the dry cleaners after the fall concert. I will send out an email whenever I find out when they will be returned for reassembly. If you would like to know what your child owes for bought gloves, socks, t-shirt or shoes, please email me after Tuesday and I will let you know what is owed. Thanks for your attention to this. Hope to see you on Tuesday and thank you again for all your help this year.
