PIT CREW VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

Looking for an exciting volunteer opportunity? The Mason Marching Band pit crew is looking for hard working, motivated individuals to support this fantastic band! What do we do? The marching band pit crew builds, moves and fixes anything that isn’t breathing! We build the props, we move the front ensemble, we load and unload the instruments. We’re the first ones in and the last ones out! We’re the marching band’s roadies and we have a lot of fun while working really hard! The pit crew is looking for new members to round out our crew, so if you are looking for a place to volunteer, we’re hiring! The pit crew is starting the prop build portion of the season, so we need folks that are willing to put the time and energy into making the band’s vision for this season a reality! You don’t need to be a master carpenter, just a willingness to help and a passion for our kids! If you are interested, email Ellery Savage or Jeff Hoelscher at equipmentcrew@masonbandboosters.com. If there are questions, pass along your email and phone number and either Jeff or Ellery will reach out.  Also, if you have already completed the Volunteer Interest Survey and you selected Pit Crew as one of your interest areas, we have your information and will be reaching out.

 

Be a part of the pit crew! We move the band!

 

 

VOLUNTEER INTEREST SURVEY

If you have not done so yet, please complete the Volunteer Interest Survey! (see the Volunteer Information Slideshow that was shared at the meeting on 6/18). This will help us to gauge your interests and align them with the overall volunteer needs of our committees and organization and help you fulfill your volunteer requirements for the upcoming Marching Band season!  If you have any questions, please reach out to Lisa Oldham (vice.president@masonbandboosters.com) or Crystal Langbein (publicinfoofficer@masonbandboosters.com) or any of our committee chairs (https://www.masonbands.com/boosters/committees/).
