TJMC Parent Volunteers for Football Games and Competitions Fall 2018

TJMC parents,

Welcome to  our Marching Colonials family! Our TJMC will be performing at 5 'home' football games and 6 competitions this season. Parent volunteers are needed to help move equipment, drive trucks, and chaperone on bus trips. To make this all work smoothly, each family is asked to volunteer for minimum 2-3 events or slots of times.

Come be part of a great American tradition: Friday Night Lights (i.e. high school football games)! We need a few parent volunteers at these games. 

During the home football games, TJMC is also responsible for helping TJ Colonial Athletic Boosters staff the concessions stand. TJMC parents are ALWAYS welcome to leave the stand at half-time to see the performance. Please sign up HERE to help with concessions.

The band competitions are a 'must see'! They are high-quality and exciting to watch. Get a close view by being on the field helping the band set up their instruments.

More details about exact times, meeting locations will be given via email closer to the dates.

If you have questions about driving the trucks (20' long, automatic, easy to drive) or moving the instruments/equipment/props (everything is on wheels and easy to move) please do not hesitate to ask. All of these tasks are easy, fun, do not require experience or a lot of physical strength.

Please sign-up below to be part of our team!
