Busy Bee Band Boosters
Programs of excellence like the Busy Bee Band & Honeybees do not happen overnight. They are the result of many years
of hard work and great support from the community. The driving force
behind much of the group's accomplishments have been the parents of the
present and past students and other supporters around the area who have
sacrificed time to help the organization. This group of devoted people are
known as the Busy Bee Band Boosters.
The Booster program annually devotes many hours into building an additional stage onto the existing stage at East Fairmont for the Follies production. The
staging enhances the band's appearance by adding more space to be
utilized. Many parents spent long hours and some late nights working on
various committees and projects that make Follies possible.
The Boosters program allows parents to participate in the decisions
that are made concerning the group. Among various other activities the
Busy Bee Band Boosters:
Help maintain and repair equipment used by the band.
Annually organize and oversee--as cooks, chaperons, first aid
attendants, etc.--a week long band camp at which 200 students,
parents, and staff work to prepare a field show.
Travel with the organization to help oversee the students and their
well-being on all trips.
Help coordinate and oversee any fund-raisers that the band might
hold throughout the year.
Much of what the Busy Bee Band & Honeybees does would be impossible
without the support of the Busy Bee Band Boosters. A successful program is
one that has the support of the community as well as parents.
