The Rolling Meadows Marching Mustangs are proud to be invited each year to march in the Rolling Meadows Memorial Day Parade.
The parade steps off at 11 a.m., this Saturday, May 27, and the Marching Mustangs are one of the highlights of this parade. The Memorial Day parade offers a great opportunity to help out while getting to hear and see our award-winning Marching Mustangs march for the final time of the 2016-17 year. Please check out the many opportunities here and volunteer where you can for this parade:

A heartfelt thanks to all those who came out and helped (and especially at the last minute!) with the Fall Concert on Sunday. We could not have done it without you!
We still have 8 positions to fill for Wednesday night’s Band-O-Rama Concert, so please consider helping us out in any way that you can for this 7:30 p.m. end-of-the-marching-season celebration concert in the main gymnasium.
Here is where you can sign up to help out:
Thank you as always for your ongoing support!

The Fall Band Concert will be held at 3 p.m., this Sunday, October 23, in the main gymnasium at RMHS. As part of this event that features the jazz bands, all choral groups and orchestra and string ensembles, we also offer cheesecake samples for the upcoming fund-raiser and introduce other fund-raisers as well. Specifically, Manna Gift Cards will be on display and the Choral Boosters are offering a Greeting Card box offer that will benefit either Choral or Music boosters – you will be able to indicate for which group the money for your purchase should be allocated. A flyer on this fund-raiser is attached HERE.
Band-O-Rama will be held at 7:30 p.m., next Wednesday, October 26, also in the main gymnasium at RMHS. This concert features all music and routines performed during the 2016 Marching Mustangs Season. It is recorded and commemorative CDs are burned and ordered/sold that night, too. Cheesecake samples for fund-raising are offered again here, too – this group sure likes cheesecake!
There are LOTS of opportunities to volunteer here, so please consider helping out where you can, especially if you do not have a student performing at one of the concerts so that parents of student-performers can come and enjoy the concert.

The Marching Mustangs’ final competition of the 2016 season is the Renegade Invitational MusicFest and will be held from 1:50 to 8 p.m., Sunday, October 16, at Sandwich High School. Our performance time is set for 6:15 p.m. on the football field.
Band members need to arrive at the RMHS Band Room by 1:15 p.m. that afternoon, and we need LOTS of help and support to make this entire day a great success from beginning to end. From loading and unloading the larger instruments onto the buses to chaperoning, filming the competitive performance, and providing water bottles for the band, there are all kinds of ways to help out, have a great time and get to know other Booster parents. Many families often drive ahead to the school and cheer on the Marching Mustangs to victory, too!
If you have not had a chance to volunteer this year yet, please check out the volunteer slots below and sign up for whatever you are available to do before our marching season comes to a close.
Thank you so much for your ongoing support and all you do for the Marching Mustangs!

Please check out the SignUpGenius link below and consider helping out Friday night for the Homecoming Football Game and the last regular home game of the season.
We still need help with baking and selling cookies, checking in marching uniforms and filming the Marching Mustangs’ Pre-Game & Halftime Shows.
Let’s finish off this undefeated football season with a great showing as we support our Marching Mustangs as they cheer the team on to another victory!
Thank you in advance,

There are two great opportunities to see the Marching Mustangs in action this weekend. The first is tomorrow night at the home football game. This also happens to be junior high band night, so you’ll get to see and hear the future Mustang musicians.
The other opportunity is at the Knight of Champions Marching Band Competition at Prospect High School. The Marching Mustangs perform their show, Desert Winds, at 5:45. Many of the top area marching bands will be in attendance putting on terrific shows at the height of their seasons. Click the link for more specific details about the day: Knight of Champions
Volunteers for both events are always welcome and encouraged. If you are interested in helping, check the Volunteer page and sign up.
