Concession/Food Committee

Chairperson: Lynn Watkins

Volunteers work closely with the chairperson to operate the concession stand at all events. This includes cooking, grilling, prepping, taking orders, etc. This committee also feeds band students at band camp and other events. This team really has fun working together!


Festival of Bands Committee

Chairperson: Lisa Wilke

The BSHS band hosts a large band festival each year called Festival of Bands (FOB), and it is a lot of fun for everyone! This festival is one of the biggest things we do, and a very important fundraiser for our band program. Many, many volunteers and helpers are needed for a wide variety of jobs to make it a success. Jobs include food concessions, ticket booth, water tent hosts, parking of spectator cars and band buses, director’s lounge hospitality, and many other volunteer opportunities.

They also create and facilitate opportunities for BSHS band parents to get together and/or stay in touch at band events.
