We need you!

The Battlefield Marching Bobcats' success is dependent on the combined efforts of the devoted parents that support them.  This has been a very hard year for everyone and our band will need all the help we can get from our parents.  Please look at the openings below on the Executive Board and the Committees. There are descriptions of the positions at the bottom of the list. Even if you don't think you have time to be a lead we will still need people to help these committees be successful. We need several chaperones for all the events, lots of drivers for the Tag Day fundraising event, people to support picking up meals and so much more! Let us know how and when you would be able to help. Every little contribution goes a long way, and the work is rewarding and appreciated.
