What's a parade without a marching band? Do you appreciate having a band at sporting events? Playing the national anthem at an event? Most everyone loves to have music in their life. It all starts with a great band program, whether a person continues to play an instrument or maybe becomes a famous composer. It costs a lot of money to run a program, especially a good one that has more than 250 students every year participating. The Davis High School marching band is the largest in Utah and yet is the only large band to have a trailer which does not meet its needs. It has ONE door. Because of this, it takes more than twice as long to load and unload as the other bands. The current trailer has some repairs and such that would need to be made so it's time to replace it. The Director is retiring after next year and it is the hope that enough money can be raised to replace, modify and wrap the trailer by Spring of 2017 in preparation for the band being able to travel to New York for the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade! ALL proceeds will go to the band program. If we exceed the goal, then that money will be used to help students in need by providing "scholarships" to help pay fees. We are seeking donations from 3-5 corporations to help with the cost and be sponsors as well. Unfortunately, this most likely will not be enough. That is why I am going to the public and asking for just a few dollars, asking everyone to share it and encourage everyone they know to do the same.
