(Solid black pants, black socks that are long enough so that the student's leg does not show when seated, and the official white Dodgen Band Polo Shirt neatly tucked in.)Parents, if you are available to attend the performance at McEachern, the students would greatly appreciate performing for a large, supportive audience! We also need a few volunteers to ride with us as chaperones and serve dinner to the students. Please volunteer on the Dodgen Band website.
