It’s football season and that means half-time snacks for the AB Marching Band and Color Guard. The Band and Color Guard members are responsible for bringing the snacks, and ABFOM provides the beverages. We have assigned a game to every section, some are divided alphabetically. Each Band or Color Guard member brings snacks for just one event. IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO BRING A SNACK FOR EACH GAME ASSIGNED.

Everyone can access the schedule on the website, and a schedule will also be posted in the Band Room. We also ask the section leaders to remind their section of their snack duty. It also helps if you put your assigned snack duty on your calendar now. 

Please bring 3-4 DOZEN individually packaged snacks. This means 36-48 snack items to share. The snacks must be in disposable packaging. Bring the snacks with you when you drop off your student and leave them on the sidewalk by the Band door entrance near the gazebo. We’ll take it from there. 

Snack suggestions: cookies (Chips Ahoy and Oreos are favorites!), pretzels, brownies, Doritos, dessert bars, CheezIts, Rice Krispies bars, chips, fruit snacks, granola bars, popcorn, Pringles, mini-bagels, candy bars.  Please DO NOT bring snacks which contain nuts or peanut butter. Please remember to bring your snack as assigned below so that there will be enough food for everyone. If a game is cancelled, or you forget your snack week, please bring it to the next game so we don’t run out of snacks at the end of the season. 

Thank you!!
