There is usually a small entrance fee for spectators to see the competition. I am not sure what that amount is for this competition. But come out and cheer for our Marching Patriots! Weather looks like it will be a beautiful afternoon in Richmond.
Here is the link to the Sign Up Genius for the football games. Also, with the change of schedule for the Monticello game, there might be some additional open spots. Help is needed to prepare the water coolers!

Fundraiser! Coupon Books
Today kicks off the Attractions Coupon Book fundraiser. We???re running this for 3 weeks. Books are $25 each. Credit for each student to their band account for each book they sell. This is a popular item in our community so this one should be easy for each student to get out there and sell to their friends and neighbors.
This year???s show contains several props. One prop has not yet been seen in performance but will be on the field this week, with a big thanks to Paul Seehaver! Paul is the grandfather to two of our Marching Patriots (Aiden and Leo Carter) and we thank him for taking the time to build this new prop to help our show!
See everyone Thursday at the game!
