Fergus Marching Band selling uniforms to raise money for new ones [UPDATED]Published 10:02am Wednesday, October 23, 2013 Updated 12:05pm Wednesday, October 23, 2013
The current Fergus Falls High School Marching Band uniforms have traveled more than 27,000 miles. They have been in front of audiences in Boston, Chicago, Minneapolis, and Seattle. They have been to the Nation’s Capital three times, with two performances for the President of the United States of America. The uniforms have served the band and the community of Fergus Falls very well. Unfortunately, they are beginning to show the 20-plus years of wear and tear.
The Fergus Falls High School Marching Band and the Fergus Falls Band Boosters are in the process of purchasing new uniforms for the band.
In an effort to raise funds for these uniforms, we are offering a great opportunity for people to have a piece of Fergus Falls Marching Band history. The cost of each new uniform is approximately $250.
Donors that sponsor the full cost of a new uniform (or more) will have the option to bring home one of the current marching band uniforms.
The uniform set will include a pair of pants, a marching band jacket, and a marching hat (marching shoes, hatboxes and garment bags are not included). The old uniforms will not be distributed until the new uniforms are in hand. Uniforms must be picked up in person. They will not be shipped.
The goal of this project is to have the new uniforms for the 2014 marching season.
The sooner we receive donations the sooner we will be able to purchase the new uniforms.
If you would like to donate to this cause write checks out to the “Fergus Falls Band Boosters” with “Uniform Fund” in the memoline.
Mail checks to: Fergus Falls High School, c/oScott Kummrow, 601 Randolph Ave, Fergus Falls, MN 56537.
Indicate whether or not you would like a uniform. If there is a specific uniform you would like to receive indicate this as well.
Keep in mind that over the 20-year life span of these uniforms many students marched in each uniform so we will handle things on a “first come first serve” basis for those that want a specific uniform.
