Lakota West Bands Update: July 11

A Communication of the Lakota West Upbeat Club

Eagle Scout Project needs Volunteers

The Lakota West Upbeat Club provided a donation in order for one of our band students to complete a much needed project for the band program. He needs volunteers to complete the task, please see information below from Kieran Mansfield:

This weekend (July 14th, July 15th) and next (July 21st, July 22nd) I will be having my Eagle Project workdays. They will be on Saturday and Sunday from 9:00am to 1:00pm. The location of my project is at Lakota West High School in the band room. My project is refinishing the Lakota West Band’s music stands. It will involve painting, sanding, and washing, so please wear old clothes. There is no need to bring any tools or extra supplies for this. There will be snacks and water and lunch will be provided. Anyone is welcome at any time throughout the day, if you are coming please try to bring a parent along. If you are interested please text me and let me know what day you are showing up at 513-341-1641. This will allow us to have adequate refreshments.
