GEN­TRY — Gen­try March­ing Band is rais­ing money by sell­ing Blue & Gold prod­ucts to support the 2017 March­ing Con­test sea­son. This year, the band will par­tic­i­pate in five march­ing com­pe­ti­tions and needs help to fund travel, con­test fees and meals for band mem­bers.

“Our band mem­bers work and prac­tice re­ally hard in or­der to rep­re­sent our district and com­mu­nity well,” said DeNisha McCol­lum, a mem­ber of the band boost­ers. “Last year, these ef­forts paid off be­cause the band was in­vited to com­pete at the in­vi­ta­tion-only Arkansas State March­ing con­test. Stu­dents are al­ready work­ing hard to earn a re­peat op­por­tu­nity this year.We thank you in ad­vance for your support dur­ing this im­por­tant fund raiser.”

Blue & Gold prod­ucts in­clude sausage, chicken ten­der­loin frit­ters and thick­sliced ba­con. These prod­ucts are unique and not avail­able for pur­chase in stores.

Prod­ucts may be pur­chased be­tween Sept. 11 and Sept. 25.

Dur­ing these two weeks, cus­tomers who or­der a “help­ing” of these Blue & Gold prod­ucts will also be “help­ing” the Gen­try Band.

“Blue & Gold is the per­fect fundraiser for us,” said Crys­tal Wood, event co­or­di­na­tor. “Ev­ery­one loves these prod­ucts.”
