If you are available, please sign up for these games. Not only will they help with band fees, but this is the biggest fundraiser of the ENTIRE YEAR. Most of our profits for the music program come from this fundraiser. Music Program Fees will go up if we can not support the Dayton Dragons Concessions Stand. In 2021 we received $25,000 in funds from working the Dayton Dragons Stand, which is what enables Stebbins to have a music program at the level that we all love! Please everyone do your part to help continue our group's tradition and lets get these Dayton Dragons signups filled.
We need more people to help. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email me.
