Don’t be surprised to see members of Mason High School’s marching band in neighborhoods Saturday.
The band’s annual Tag Day fundraiser has been set for Aug. 3. Teens will be going door-to-door asking for donations for the program.
Look for the teens sometime between 10 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.
Those who donate at least $25 will be given admission vouchers for the donor and a guest to attend the annual Mason Band Invitational on Oct. 19. In addition, names of donors will appear in all band programs throughout the year.
With the help of 2012 Tag Day donations, the band competed in the grand nationals, earning a spot in the final competition, finishing eighth in the nation and first in Ohio.
The high school Honors Wind Symphony and top middle school band traveled to Columbus to perform at the Ohio Music Educators Conference.
For those who would like to donate, but don’t receive a visit from a band member or who won’t be home, checks made out to Mason City Schopols can be mailed to: MHS Band Boosters, P.0. Box 310, Mason, OH 45040. Please indicate that the donation is for Tag Day and list how you would like your name to be listed in band programs.
