Band Banquet Photos and Slideshow
The band banquet has always included a slide show with photos of the band and videos of the seniors at the end.  With the virus, we are uncertain of the future. Hopefully, school will be in session and the slideshow DVD’s will be ready to buy for $10.00 but if school is cancelled, we will sell them in July when band starts up again.  If your student is moving or will not be in band next year and you would like one, please email me at  Katebeville@gmail.com.  I am asking every parent to send me one photo of your student in band. I want to make sure everyone is included. Please post the photos to the Oldham County HS Band Boosters! Facebook page by Friday, April 17th or email at Katebeville@gmail.com.
