Normal West Band Trailer

Due to an unfortunate incident, the Normal West Marching Band tractor-trailer, used to transport marching band instruments, equipment and uniforms for 150 students at Normal West High School to band competitions throughout Illinois and the surrounding states, was totaled. Thankfully, no one was hurt in this incident.

In an effort to avoid the cost of renting box trucks in our already tight budget, we are looking to raise funds to purchase another tractor-trailer as quickly as possible. Anything you can do to assist with this effort will be greatly appreciated!

The Normal West Marching Band is a competitive Bands of America marching band celebrating its 20th anniversary this academic year. The band has a rich history of excellence and with your help, our transportation costs will remain manageable and not detract from other areas of need within the program.

Thank you for your assistance!!
