MHS Marching Band Uniforms

Would you send your quarterback into the game without his jersey? Would you want to see your point guard playing in her blue jeans?  The Milton High School uniform brings our teams together and instills pride in all of us Wildcat fans.

 There's a MHS team playing without proper uniforms and we're asking for your help to support this group of students who add a vital dimension to Wildcat pride.

The Wildcat Marching Band was revived in 2010 under the direction of our dedicated music teachers, Rebecca Damiani and Gary Good.  Five years later, the MHS marching band is thriving. We think it's time to make a modest investment in these student musicians. This would be the first time since the 1970s that we have seen uniforms on the MHS marching band.

 So far, the band has performed in hand-me-down tracksuits. They are certainly not flashy but they served a purpose. To replace them, Milton Friends and Advocates for Music Education are asking for your support in a fundraising campaign to outfit the Wildcat Marching Band with a previously owned uniform set that will provide performers with pants, jacket, gloves, shako hats and a decorative plume.

A new uniform with accessories costs approximately $400 per uniform.  We think that we've found a smart alternative that will save approximately 75% percent, bringing the average cost per uniform to $100. These funds will have to be raised outside of the school budget.

Help us meet our goal of $10,000 with an individual or corporate contribution. New uniforms will put the Wildcat Marching Band on sartorial par with their peers and make them eligible for certain competitions and parade appearances. Their numbers have been growing and last year the Wildcat Marching Band competed in a regional MICCA competition where they received the highest rating in their division for musical performance.

Thank you for your support. Let's keep MHS musicians marching forward!
