Help Needed for Flag Fundraiser


Request for Flag delivery drivers!

 Request for Flag collection help!

We have 10 routes that need to be collected Wednesday evening.

Each route only takes about 45 (or less) to collect. The website www.honorwithflags.net uses Google Maps and will direct you from home to home. It also includes photos and a description of where the flag is to be placed at each home.

Don’t disqualify yourself if you don’t own a truck, van or SUV.  If you have a sedan and your rear seat folds down, you can transport flags! 

If you are able to help with flag collection, please click the link to sign up…

Food Crew News


Join us!

Lafayette has a large, talented, and hungry group of kids to feed! We feed them the last two weeks of band camp and at each competition. It takes a lot of helpers to make this happen. It is a lot of work, but also so much fun. We get to be around the kids, see them interact with one another, and make them happy with Food! The Food Crew feels strongly that FOOD IS LOVE.  Serving the kids food is more than putting nutrition in the bodies. To us, it is a chance to serve others with loving intention with a goal of engaging with each kid and showing care for them as people. ” If you would like to join our team, you can email us at lbafoodcrew@gmail.com.

Band Camp Lunches

We are still working on the details of Band Camp lunches, but in the last 2 weeks of band camp, Food Crew will need volunteers! More details about the lunches will be in next week Enews. In the meantime, you can sign up to help us with this link:


Special Diets
Food crew is nut free, but if your child has any other special diet, please let us know. We will always have a vegetarian option, but if your child is vegan, we will need to know so that we can properly provide food for them. Please email lbafoodcrew@gmail.com.

Restaurant Connections
We are looking for restaurants to give us a deal or even an in-kind donation for a meal during the competition season. If you have any connections with someone that owns or runs a restaurant, please let us know and we will reach out to them.
