The Pitman High School Band and Color Guard Boosters is an organization dedicated to supporting the Marching Pride Band and Color Guard programs. The mission of our Booster Club is to promote the talent in each of our students and to continually support the band and color guard programs at various marching and concert events as well as with fundraising activities. We organize fundraisers to pay for band supplies, entry fees, some transportation costs to competitions, water and refreshments for the students, equipment, uniforms (upkeep and new purchases), instrument repairs, music, flags, coaches, and other band & guard needs as identified by the band director.
EVERYONE is welcome to join! Your annual membership dues go directly to support our band and guard program! With ever increasing budget cuts to the arts & music programs, we need your support to improve our music programs today, and plan for healthy music programs for the future! By becoming a Booster Club Member, you help us do that!
DO I HAVE TO BE A BAND PARENT TO JOIN? The answer is NO! We count on the financial support from our Booster Club Members through their annual dues! These annual dues alone are a great "fundraiser" for the band. Parents, extended family, friends, neighbors, community members and our dedicated Alumni are all invited to become a part of the booster membership!
DO I HAVE TO GO TO MEETINGS? The Answer is NO, though as a Booster Club Member, you have the privilege of making motions and voting at our quarterly General meetings in August, November, February and April, and should you choose, you may run for election and hold office.
DO I HAVE TO VOLUNTEER? The Answer is NO, but you may find that with the wide array of volunteer opportunities that the Booster Club makes available, there could be something that fits perfect with your schedule and your personality! Pulling our Band trailer to an event, passing out water bottles at a football game, polishing shoes at a band review, stuffing envelopes or working on our website... we have hundreds of opportunities you can choose from, including choosing nothing at all. If you are a parent, you may feel more comfortable volunteering than say a distant relative or community member. Remember, your membership dues alone help the Boosters to reach their financial goals, volunteering is considered icing on the cake!
