Medication Pick Up

Medication from the Marching Band Season will be available for pick up just before/after Awards Night on December 2nd. If your student will be participating in Winter Guard or Concert Bands and their medication will still be needed, you can leave it with us until the end of the school year. Prior to travel in any Mason Bands program,  Medication Drop Off events will be scheduled so you can drop off new medication or refill ones we already have. if you have any questions, please contact Lisa Oldham at


Board Elections 

In December, boosters will vote on the volunteer members to serve on the board beginning January 1st - December 31st, 2020. This is an exciting opportunity to make a positive impact on the program. 


Mason Bands is fortunate to have such dedicated volunteers who share their talent and professional expertise to serve on the board, lead committees, and volunteer to support the various activities of such a high performing program. If you haven’t had an opportunity to connect, please make that one of your goals for 2020.  You will find it rewarding!
