Just A Little Help Is Needed...

If you're a THS Band program student who wants to earn some $$ toward band-related expenses, if you're good with hard work, and if you will be in town on Memorial Day (Monday), you might want to shoot a message to McKee. 

This is an opportunity to do yard work (weeding, hauling, spreading) for 4 - 6 hours in exchange for a $50-75 deposit to your band account. 3 - 4 students will be needed, with work beginning in the late morning. And of course, there will be food...

Interested? CLICK HERE to send a message.
