Bands of America (BOA) September 23rd, 2017

The McNeil Band will be hosting our 5th Bands of America Austin Championships on September 23rd.  We are thrilled to have this opportunity; it is our single largest fundraiser for the year, so it is very important for all of our families to take the opportunity to volunteer and support our Maverick Band! Students will not be marching at BOA, so they can/should volunteer! We need over 250 volunteers, so enlist your family members and friends for an exciting day, and sign them up in Charms! There is a job for everyone!
