VOLUNTEER INFORMATION

The Choctawhatchee Band Program cannot run without volunteers.  We need volunteers to serve on the various Band Booster committees.  

Below is a brief summary of the areas volunteers are needed on a regular basis and on an as-needed basis.  All adult voluteers must complete an Okaloosa County School District Volunteer Affidavit and have it properly notarized each year.  If you are interested in volunteering, please contact volunteer coordinator Nikki Chandler at 850.200.3011 or nikki.chandler75@gmail.com.

 
Concessions
Volunteers are needed for all home football games and special hosted events.  Concessions is one of the largest separately-managed fund raisers for our band, and our volunteers are vital to it's success.  Concession volunteers enjoy a unique kind of fun and cameraderie.
 
Uniforms
The Uniform Committee is responsible for fitting, assignment and maintenance of all uniforms as well as the Headdress Clinic.  Below are the sub-committees seeking volunteers.
 
Headdress Clinic - We need volunteers to assist students during Headdress Clinic.  Current Style Marchers can earn volunteer hours by assisting at Headdress Clinic.

Fitting Committee - We need volunteers to assist in Annual Uniform Fitting to help size Vipers, gaunlets and uniforms

Washing Committee - We have a committee that washes all uniforms. Volunteers are assigned 5-6 uniforms to wash after performances. This is a great way to support the band from home.  Volunteers pick-up uniforms on Tuesday and return them on Thursday. Uniforms are machine washable and dryable.
