Chick-Fil-A is coming!

The BHS Band Boosters is excited to inform you that we will be selling Chick-Fil-A sandwiches in the concession stand this year!  We will also be offering your band student a snack supper with a limited concession menu.  This will include a Chick-Fil-A combo, and a variety of candy options.  These items will be available by pre-payment. In addition to tomorrow night’s band meeting,  I will be available after every Tuesday/Thursday practice (home game weeks only) to accept these forms along with payment.

We will be selling these items to your student at a substantial discount.  For example, the Chick-Fil-A combo will be $5 which will include the sandwich, chips and drink.  Students will have an opportunity to fill out choice of chips and drink on the order form.

We are also looking for volunteers to help serve this meal to the students from 2:45pm-4:00pm.  The more volunteers we have, the more variety of food we will be able to offer your student.

If you are interested in serving at any of the snack suppers during home games, please email me at  

Thank you in advance for your help and we are looking forward to serving your students!

RUN!!  BHS Marching Band!
