Band says thanks for tag day donations

Members of the Boonsboro High Marching Band want to thank all those who answered the door Saturday and supported their fundraiser.

Tag Day, coordinated by Kim Kersting and Sue Myers, was successful, thanks to the generosity of the community.  

The Boosters especially thank all the supporters of Boonsboro Band Boosters and the middle and high school bands. Without the fans and supporters, the band wouldn’t be able to do everything it does.

If your house did not get a visit from a band member, and you’d like to send in support, make checks payable to Boonsboro Band Boosters and mail to Boonsboro High School, Campus Drive, Boonsboro, MD 21713, Attention: Micah Socks. All donations are tax-deductible.
