What we do

The Executive Board is comprised of your peers. Parents, just like you. We all have full time jobs, some of us also have kids in sports and other kids with needs of their own. We make it work because we want to see these kids thrive! We share the same struggles, concerns and worries as you. We also share in your pride, joy and excitement to see our kids learn, grow and be their best selves. 

We have monthly meetings to discuss upcoming events, coordinate volunteer opportunities, manage your child's band funds and help your kids as much as we can. We sew, we glue, we balance accounts and we laugh, we praise and treat your kids as our own. 

As you know, it takes a village to raise a child. In our family we have nearly 100 kids. We are always looking for help, for volunteers, just like you. There is always much to do and many hands make light work. We have fun, we work hard and even though we don't get paid, what we get in return is immeasurable. Join us!

If you are interested in being a fully involved board member, chair person or would just like to be one of our wonderful volunteers, then fill out the form in the "How Can I Help?" tab or email us directly above or at boosters@bghs-bands.org or Facebook Page and we will be in touch!

We can't wait to hear from you!
