RECYCLING PROGRAM: Collecting again this Saturday, 09/27!! 
We will be collecting cans and plastic bottles for recycling throughout the marching season.  REMEMBER, NO GLASS!!  

The students will do most of the work.  We will have different sections responsible for different drop off days.  Specific dates for recycling will be sent out closer to band camp, so for now, please save all your cans and plastic bottles.  It would be very helpful if you could separate cans from bottles and make sure that all the containers are empty.  The funds raised will go into the general fund.  We will also need a few parents supervising and assisting in transporting the recyclables to a recycling center.  If you have a truck and you are willing to help please call or text Katarina Ingels - (559) 779-1116

SAVE MART CENTER: Please visit the Save Mart Center page and let Sean & Missy know which dates/shifts you can work!! OCTOBER EVENTS HAVE BEEN POSTED!!  (The list of events is current as of 09/22/2014).  Thanks!!

TIP TRAINING: A new TIP training course may be scheduled for October 6 or 7.  Please contact 
Sean & Missy with your name and number if you are interested in attending (must be 17 years or older).

For everyone new to TIP training and working the Save Mart Center, please review the following information: 

Our LARGEST fundraiser is working the concession stands at the Save Mart Center at Fresno State.  At each event, they could ask us to have five up to 25 or more volunteers!  Bullard Band Backers receive part of the proceeds and for each person who works an event, the money is credited towards your fundraising goal.  The amount varies for each event.  Parents, students (17 years or older) and other family members may work the concession stands, but they must be TIP (Training in Intervention Procedures) trained first!  Once trained, the certification is good for three years.  

Save Mart sends us a request for an event and the number of volunteers needed and then we send out an email requesting volunteers.  We take volunteers on a first-come, first-serve basis.  We do our best to keep family members together, but sometimes we might have to put them at separate stands. 

Save Mart will be conducting another TIP training class in October. Not exactly sure on the date but possibly Oct 6th or 7th. Sean and Missy will let you know for sure once it is confirmed. TIP training is about an hour and a half long class. They will go over what to wear, how your hair should be, plus go over how to check ID's for when we sell alcohol.  We have some women's volleyball and concerts coming up.  Men’s and women’s basketball games will be starting in November.  An e-mail will be sent out very soon.  We really need volunteers. If you can work we need you. This is our biggest fundraiser and we don't want to lose it. It's a lot but we need parents to step up if we want this to work. Please e-mail  or text Missy directly.  If you have any questions: missy_mcgrail@sbcglobal.net, or text at 559-313-6693.
