New uniforms: We need assistance with fitting the students with uniforms at 11 a.m. this upcoming Monday and Tuesday. This will be for the Veterans Day Parade on Saturday. Please contact Denise Dean at denise@riversidepolyband.com if you are available.

For the Drive One 4UR School event we fell short of our goal by 50 percent — only 150 people came out. That equates to a loss of $3,000 for the band and color guard. Please remember that fund raisers like these are the difference between success and failure of our program and this particular fund raisers was a no-cost- to you event.  Thank you to those of you who did come one, particularly the parents who stayed to help the whole day.

Urgent: We do not have enought test drivers yet

Post Date: April 12th, 2014

At this point we only have about 55 drivers for our Drive One 4UR School. Please, please, please come out to Poly and test drive. This is not a sales pitch and no sales people will call. If we get 300 people, we will get $6,000 for the band. Please don’t let us lose out on this chance. It is a quick process. Please take a few minutes from your day and help the kids with this great program. Questions: kim@riversidepolyband.com.
