Coin Wars Competition Was Good For Everyone
It was another exciting year of COIN WARS at band camp all week. Strategies of how much money to put in the various section jars & when, and who to sabotage varied from section to section. In the end the Clarinet/Flute Section prevailed with the highest total! Great job to all of the sections. Special thanks to Yvette Calendar for organizing & implementing this fundraiser ! Monies raised will go back to social events for the Marching Band !
