Messages from our Donors
Our donation is made in honor of the band leaders, including the Directors and Boosters Executive Committee, who work tirelessly to make the CD Band program such an amazing experience for the students. The program provides a range of participation levels for students with various degrees of interest, from being part of concert band to performing in multiple auditioned ensembles, as well as competing in Marching Band and Indoor Lines. For some students, band is just a small part of their day but allows them to continue pursuing their joy of playing their instrument. For others, band is a major part of their high school life and provides a group of friends and a comfortable place to express their love of music together. We appreciate the time and dedication the band leaders put into the lives of the CD band students and hope this donation helps them be able to focus on the music, not the money needed to run the program.
An appreciative Band Family.
It is time to pass onto the next group of band members. I hope you enjoy it as much as my children have.
We are proud to donate to CDHS Marching Band on behalf of our son and our favorite clarinet player, Ben Wiedt. We are so proud of you!
Love you, Mom and Dad

As parents of a CD Ram Band student we also have memories of other band parents and students that we have enjoyed working along side over these past 4 years.

We students are playing our part NOW to help ease the financial hardships this pandemic has caused for our school district and band boosters organization. Our mission - raise money for music and instrument repairs for our marching, concert and jazz ensembles, and reinstate our scholarship program for band students that had to be cut from the budget for the upcoming year.
We continue to work hard, practicing at home, knowing brighter days are ahead. We need YOUR help, and hope you will support us in this endeavor.
Our CDHS Band Program has always been service and community minded - we pledge to donate 10% of funds raised to support the Central Dauphin Nutri-Packs Program, which provides food for many of our school district families in need.
Thank you !
