Volunteer Opportunities

There are many opportunities to get involved with the Marching Band. Even if you have limited availability, the smallest contribution goes a long way. It does take a village to support our marching band students, directors, and community. Meet other band parents and have loads of fun while helping out. The following committees are in need of your helping hands.

Volunteer Opportunities - Football Games

For each football game we need parent volunteers to help with (1) Pit Crew, (2) Plumes, (3) Band Seat Covers,  (4) Water Committee and (5) Selling Gear. All volunteers will get a pass to enter the game for free. Any questions? Ask Julia Miller at juliakornmiller@yahoo.com. 

Band Seat Covers: Volunteers help reserve space for the  band to sit and vinyl seat covers are placed on the bleachers. Joel and Erin Palmer are organizing parents to help with this important task. Volunteers will meet 30 minutes before the game to place the seat covers and help with removing the covers at the end of the game. Sign up to support one or multiple games. 

Pit Crew: Help move the pit equipment and ancillaries to support the Band’s halftime show! Parents meet at the pit truck on the southwest end of the field ~30 minutes before the game.  Signup to support one or multiple games.  

Plumes: Parents are needed to help distribute plumes before half time and collect plumes after half time. Signup to support one or multiple games. 

Water Committee: Volunteers provide water to the band following the half-time performance since the kids need to remain together and in uniform throughout the game. Jen and Jim Gallo are organizing volunteers for this parent crew. This committee meets 45 minutes before the start of the game to fill coolers with water and ice and then bring the coolers to the stadium. You will also help distribute water following half time performance. Email Jen Gallo at  jenflwrcsu@aol.com to help with this committee. 

NEW Selling Gear: Come early to the home football games (and to Back to School Night) and help sell Creek gear; shirts, shorts, jackets and the football program. The band will get 30% back on everything we sell so grab a friend and come early to the home games. You will be finished in time to watch your student perform on the field! Thank you! Any questions, reach out to Emily Rissmiller at  emilyrissmiller00@gmail.com or 214.783.9819.
