Current Events

Band Booster Information:

  1. The 2016-17 Band booster officers are: President- Allen Kutch, Vice President- Becky Thomas, Secretary- Christina Stolarski, Treasurer- Donna Reyes, and Historian- Sherry Kutch.
  2.  We got the budget discussion and concession stand clean-up meetings out of the way so don’t be afraid to come to our monthly meetings on the second Thursday of each month at 6:30.  October’s meeting will be Oct. 6th at the concession stand.
  3.  Due to a shorter practice time and a football scrimmage that was changed from Friday to Thursday the 18th, march-off is cancelled this year.
  4. Sign-up sheets will be going out to parents of Jr. High and High school for the five home Friday football games. After the first game on August the 26th, we will be splitting up the concession stand shifts into first and second half.  If you find you can work a shift at the last minute or you would only like to work during half-time please call Allen at 281-687-4713.  You haven’t lived until you’ve made nachos or snow cones for a hundred people.
  5. We have an increase in band kid numbers- 112 at the high school- and are anticipating buying new uniforms, among other things, so if you are in a philanthropic mood and don’t want to work in the concession stand (which is to raise money for the necessities of band that the school cannot afford) please consider donating a token of your appreciation for the well-oiled machine that is the Big Red Brahma Band.
  6. Huge thank you to the Ferris’ for getting the storage container ready to go and the concrete poured for the BBQ pit area- it makes the whole stadium look better.

Check out the Bellville Band Boosters Facebook page for pictures of the band from every event and up to the minute information.
