Summit High School Band offers great money saver

FARMER’S KORNER – The Summit High School Band and Orchestra is looking forward to the opportunity of performing on the USS

Missouri at Pearl Harbor June 7-12 in Honolulu, Hawaii. They have been working hard preparing for the trip and raising the necessary funds. Now they want to offer others the opportunity to be part of their efforts.

“Buy a Mile to Honolulu” is a campaign that has been started to raise the money necessary for students to make the trip to Hawaii. Summit County is approximately 3,350 miles from Honolulu. Each mile is being sold for $5. You can support the band by buying one or more miles.

Another option for supporting the band is the “Summit Tigers Savings Package” – savings valued at more than $200 for the low price of $20.

For more information, please contact Shannon at (970) 389-7925.

The Summit High School Band thanks all its supporters.
