Fruit Fundraiser

The annual fruit fundraiser has begun.  This fundraiser is open to all band and colorguard members as well as any show choir member going on the Florida trip.  The fruit is picked and then shipped directly to us the next day.  It is always outstanding quality. 

Orders for band and guard members are due back on November 8 and for show choir members on November 10.  All checks should be made out to AHS Band.  As always, a portion of the profits will be placed into an account for the student that can be used for the Florida trip or any other band related fees or expenses.  Additional order forms can be found under the Information and Forms section of the band portion of our website.
