Wow what a week!! From middle school Monday at the Frank to Friday night at the Joe to Saturday at the Rocket City Marching Competition, this awesome band has rocked it out all week. They are putting in the work and it is shows. Keep it up!!
Please remember that the uniforms are dry clean only! You may get it cleaned, as needed, during the season but no washing at home. If there are any questions or concerns, please contact Kelly. email@example.com
Also, everyone please make sure that the snaps at the bottom of the bibbers are completely snapped all the way up the pant leg on both sides. If you only snap the top snap, the legs will look poofy at the bottom. Nobody wants poofy legs so snap, snap.
