Join the MOTK Program Guide Committee!
The MOTK Program Guide Committee is looking for new members to join them! All of our active committee members have seniors graduating in 2017 so this will be the last year for all of them. We have several positions open and this year volunteers can shadow and then take over the many responsibilities that include collection of ads and checks, crediting of points, and production, proofreading and printing of the Program Guide for Music of the Knight. We are looking for parents that will have several years ahead of them in Band Backers to take on the tasks of the Program Guide Committee going forward. This is the most lucrative fundraiser the band has had and in the past few years has grown to bring in $40,000 for the SHS Marching Band! We look forward to the continued success of the MOTK Program Guide and need the help of our interested band parents to volunteer.
Anyone interested please contact the Committee Chairperson Stephanie Vollaro at 860-628-6443 or at email@example.com for more details. The committee will begin to meet right after Mini Band Camp to start up the exciting new season!
Laura Shaw is working on a History of the Marching Band and Southington Music Program. She is looking for any information you may have; pictures, recordings, fundraiser flyers, etc. She has a lot of stuff from 1999 to the present, so anything before that would be awesome. She especially wants things played for marching band and orchestra, special events, trips, and odd and interesting stuff like selling cleaning products as a fundraiser..yeah they did that! Send anything you have to Lbshaw1@cox.net.

Band Backer Legacy Supporter Program: Once a Band Backer always a Band Backer
As someone who believes that a quality music program is something we need to preserve and continue to strengthen, what better community to reach out to then former Southington Band Backers and their families! You know first-hand what Southington's music program has done for your children. You know how lucky we are to have such a dedicated group of Music Educators in our town. You know that the Southington Band Backer organization's purpose is to strengthen and support the music programs in our schools. Your children may have moved on to bigger things but it's important to remember how they got there. With that spirit in mind we have a new opportunity for past Band Backers and their family's to continue to support and strengthen the Southington Music program for years to come. With an annual donation to the Southington Band Backers, a 501c3 charity, you will be listed as a Band Backer Legacy Supporter in the Music of the Knight Program Guide and receive 2 MOTK tickets as our thank you. You may choose from three Support levels. Bronze Level $100, Silver Level $200, and Gold Level $300. You know how important these programs are; please consider being a part of the sound for as long as you can. For more information or to pledge your support please contact Erik Semmel at firstname.lastname@example.org. Your charitable pledge of support will be billed to you automatically in July just before the marching band season begins.
Following the lead of many other organizations and teams at the high school we have designed a lawn sign. This sign will allow you, your family, and neighbors the ability to show their support for the Marching Band. Here is the design we have come up with:
These are two sided 18 X 24 inch signs and cost $20 each. If you are still looking to purchase one, contact Tisha and Eric Semmel at email@example.com.
Did you (or your student) misplace forms? Never fear! All the forms are posted on the ===>forms page<=== as we we get them!
