WMHS Band Inaugural Parade 2017
As you may be aware, this band participated in this same parade 12 years ago and was a proud and worthy representative then. The experiences our students gained continues to be a defining moment and highlight of their lives. We are humbled and excited to again be chosen to participate in what is always a historic event, the peaceful transition of power in The United States. Our process is unique to the world and is but one example of the greatness and wisdom of our founding fathers in creating this form of government. To have our students not only witness but be an integral part of this occasion is simply priceless. I firmly believe this will shape their lives for years to come.
The cost to get to Washington is large, and there is but a short time to raise the necessary funds to be your representative. We need your help! Our community, and indeed the entire region of Northeast Louisiana showed such incredible support for us in 2005, and exemplified the best of what makes our area so great. Most of the monies we gathered were in the form of small individual contributions of 50-100 dollars. We absolutely need that same support in 2017! We know how proud our area is to be American, regardless of affiliations, and to help express that pride on a national stage by having YOUR band march is a wonderful and appropriate example. Please help these 200 students, who have proven their musical excellence, to go to Washington, D.C. and represent YOU in way that shows the rest of the country what true community, true excellence, true American spirit means.
Your donations, large and small, are entirely tax deductible through the West Monroe High School Band Boosters.
These donations will help cover travel and lodging expenses for 200 deserving high school musicians. We dont have much time, so please consider donating today!
Good morning from The West Monroe High School Band! 11 days!!! The time is drawing near for our departure for the 58th Inaugural Parade! We have broken the 15,000 dollar mark in our Go Fund Me campaign!! Wow! To all who have given thus far, THANK YOU!!! As we lead up into this appearance, you may see or even have seen some negative press regarding our mascot and school. This is click bait designed to inflame. My challenge to you is to share this Go Fund Me link in every comment section of these posts! This appearance will be a life changing event for every student and they are so excited to represent YOU.
Don't forget the ArkansasInfidel Knives giveaway. If you mention them and put your email address in the comments section of a Go Fund Me donation, every 10 dollars gets 1 entry into the knife giveaway valued at over 500 dollars!
Please continue to share this page! Thank you!

Band supporters! Thank you so much for all the help and donations thus far. We are currently at around 11,500 dollars which is awesome! We've been hard at work fundraising in other areas as well, and as we get closer to reaching our goal, we STILL need more help. Please continue to share! One more incentive is that ArkansasInfidel Knives is donating one of their custom knives valued at over 500 dollars to this effort. Mention them and put your email address in your comments, and every $10 donated gets your name entered once for a drawing for that knife! Thank you again for supporting our band in this historic appearance. KEEP SHARING!!
