The Band Booster Garage Sale will be on August 9th at Lamar Middle School (6201 Wynona Avenue) starting at 7AM. Please come on out and shop. Your neighbors have really great stuff! 

This is the band's biggest fundraiser and we need your help to make this year's sale a success. All proceeds go towards band uniforms and scholarships for lessons and trips. This year the Lamar Symphonic Winds Band has been invited to compete in the prestigious Music For All Festival in Indianapolis. In order to insure all of our students can make this exciting trip, we need your help.
