Williamsport High School band has begun raising money to purchase new uniforms.
The Band Boosters have started planning different fundraising ideas, and will keep the community posted about upcoming projects and dates.
To begin with, they are planning a school community yard sale to benefit the music departments of thethree Williamsport schools - Williamsport Elementary, Springfield Middle and Williamsport High School.
The tentative date is April 26, 2008, and the high school is accepting nonclothing donations from 6 to 7 p.m. before the monthly Band Boosters meetings at the high school band room beginning Dec. 17 through the April 2008 meeting.
All the high school money earned will go directly to the band uniform fund. The Band Boosters are a non-profit organization, donations may be tax deductible - donors should check with their tax adviser. Monetary donations are always welcome and greatly appreciated.
