Pink Out Game

Friday, October 19 at 7pm is our “Pink Out” game to show awareness for breast cancer.  Shirts are $12 and can be purchased through the band boosters next week by putting the money in booster cash box.  Checks or exact change required, and checks should be made to LC Bird Band Boosters.  Students may wear their pink shirt instead of their marching band shirt under their uniform.  We only have 4 smalls left, and no sizes above XL.
