Fruit Sale

The annual Riversweet fruit sale began on October 14th and all orders must be turned in by Friday November 14th. Students in grades 6 thru 12 will be participating in the sale. Any money earned by 6th and 7th graders will benefit the band as a whole. Any money earned by 8th to12th graders will be put into their individual trip accounts.


In addition to the order form that was given to the students, parents and friends can also place orders online There is a place to designate a specific 8-12th grade band member during the ordering process so the student will get credit for the sale.

All money should be collected when orders are taken.  Checks can be made out to Green Band boosters.  We have requested a delivery date of December 6th but are still waiting for confirmation from Riversweet on that delivery date.

Fundraiser | Greenery Sale

We are doing our greenery sale for the second year. As we did last year, we will be offering two programs as part of this fundraiser. Customers can order wreaths, sprays, centerpieces and small trees that will be delivered directly to the school for the band student to then deliver; or customers can order greenery that will be shipped directly to the recipient with a holiday note. The holiday program is great for sending out of town gifts.


This fundraiser will begin on October 1st.  All orders must be turned into the band room by October 29th. All of the bulk orders will be delivered to the band room the week of December 6th. All orders sent directly to customers will start arriving at the end of November-beginning of December.


You student will receive one brochure, a sheet on how to fill out your information, a collection envelope and one form that can be used for sending items direct to the customer. We will have more of the forms for sending items direct in the band room, but have not given multiples to the students because they are very expensive to produce and last year many were thrown away.  A holiday gift form must be filled out for each individual gift order. Please fill out all the information and have your customer fill in the holiday message area. Please collect money for all orders, both bulk and gift, when you take the order. Checks should be made out to Green Band Boosters.
